Champagne is sparkling wine that comes from the Champagne region of north-eastern France. Technically, if the bottle is not from that region, it’s sparkling wine — not champagne. A nice glass of perfectly chilled bubbly is held dear, whether for celebrating a special occasion or for no reason at all. Who knew that along with being a top toasting choice and the perfect mate for fresh-squeezed orange juice, champagne offers health benefits, too? Cheers to that! Image Courtesy: Getty
