#3 Méthode Champenoise

How do they make Champagne? Simple, a process called Méthode Champenoise. In this way they first make a good white wine, then using a bit more yeast and bit more sugar, they cause a sec on fermentation in the bottle to create the famous bubbles. You can use a similar method to make homemade ginger beer and fizzy hard cider, too.
