Champagne

Origin of Phrases - C

 

Champagne

Named for the Champagne region of France in which it was first created by a 17th-century monk named Dom Perignon. Dom never meant to create champagne, it actually happened by accident. He invented the cork to act as a new top for the bottles of wine produced by his abbey, rather than using the traditional cloth rag stoppers. The cloth allowed carbon dioxide that formed during fermentation to escape, but the corks didn't - they were airtight and caused bubbles to form in the wine.
