Wine is made by fermenting grape juice. Champagne is a white sparkling wine strictly from Champagne region in France and is made by re-fermenting wine in bottles and adding yeast to it.
Wine re-fermented in bottles anywhere else in the world or aerated by injecting carbon dioxide is called Sparkling Wine and not Champagne
- Simple, Champagne is for winners and wine is for losers.
- The difference is in the alcohol content, cost, standard, and of course, the hangover.
