This is not your wine geek’s champagne book. This cool, fun, unpretentious deep dive into Champagne and sparkling wine—including amazing wines from lesser-known sparkling regions—will give you tips, info, and inspiration that will empower readers to pop the bubbly any day of the year.
Champagne. For some, the word conjures up the holiday season and a small sprinkling of other festive events. For others, it’s dollar signs and anxiety—the pressure to spend a lot without knowing what you’re in for. For too few—according to Ariel Arce, owner of Air’s Champagne Parlor—does Champagne say “fun.” Drawing on her decade of experience selling, drinking, and exploring the world of sparkling wine, POP BOTTLES educates, amuses, inspires, and empowers readers to make Champagne and sparkling wine their go-to, everyday treat.
Divided into two sections (one for Champagne—the sparkling wine that comes from the region of Champagne—and the other from sparkling wines from around the world), POP BOTTLES dispenses with dry backstory and tedious tasting notes in favor of a rollicking, visual tour of the complete universe of bubbly. There will be sections that help you discover your palate through emoji; a guide to what to wear (and not wear) to a vineyard; and an instructive, visually rich guide to creating sparkling soirees like a Champagne ping-pong pizza party; a lazy Sunday with bubbly and buddies, and a glam disco dance. The sparkling section will cover the dominant sparkling regions around the world (Italy, Spain, and elsewhere in France), along with exciting newer players like Greece, England, the U.S., America, Australia, and Japan.
