Sparkling wine only really became possible when it was discovered that cork could be used to seal the bottle. Corks are made out of the bark of the cork oak and consist of compressed pieces of cork that are very durable. The end that comes into contact with the sparkling wine is made up of two or three pieces of cork.
The sound of a popping cork is a well-established symbol of joy and excitement, and it signals the start of a celebration. But if you open the bottle too quickly, the sparkling wine can bubble over due to the sudden drop in pressure – which is a real waste of a good drink.
