In the 1400s, too-cold temperatures disrupted the fermentation of wine and caused excess carbon dioxide bubbles. It wasn’t exactly an instant hit but people slowly began to crave the bubbly wine. In the 17th century, monk Dom Pierre Pérignon helped develop a method of producing white wine from red grapes, a huge step towards the champers we love to quaff today.
