Undergoing Second Fermentation

The wine is bottled, and cane sugar and more yeast are added to each bottle to trigger a second fermentation. This is where the bubbles come in! Each bottle has a crown cap or another type of temporary seal, and is stored horizontally in a wine cellar for at least 15 months and up to 11 years.
