Sparkling wine is a wine style characterised by effervescence in the wine due to high levels of carbon dioxide. The carbon dioxide in the wine can come from secondary fermentation in the bottle, in a pressurised tank or from carbon dioxide injection. Each method of making sparkling wine determines the size and amount of the bubbles and the taste of the wine.
