About Tyson:

Did you know the bubbles in Champagne were first considered a flaw?

Early winemakers of the Champagne region considered bubbles a defect, a corruption of the still, fizz-free wine they were trying to make.

These bothersome bubbles came about unintentionally. The weather was the culprit. Being so far north, the temperature in Champagne sometimes turned too cool too soon, stopping the fermentation process short. To the unbeknown winemakers, these bottles were ticking time bombs waiting to explode.

Guess what happened when spring arrived? The warmer temperatures rebooted fermentation to cause a secondary ferment in the bottle and therefore built up so much pressure, the cellars turned into a reenactment of WWII with shattering glass and corks flying everywhere.

Faced with a potentially defective product, there was only one thing to do: call in the marketers! The marketing pros took what was essentially a flaw and turned it into a fabulous selling point! They positioned Champagne as a fun, festive wine. Today, of course, the very word “Champagne” is practically a synonym for celebration.

Join us on December 5 and allow Tyson to entice us with what was once considered to be “Bubble Trouble” to now being “Bubble Guzzle”
