Friday 13:Wine flukes

Are you a paraskevidekatriaphobic?

Friday, 13 has always been the object of many superstitions, but it can also be a good omen! Many cultures consider it the ideal moment to tempt fate. For instance, the discovery of the very first sparkling wine was a fluke, when a second fermentation occurred and let CO2 bubbles form inside the wine. Oral tradition suggests Benedict monks from Saint Hilaire for the discovery in 1531 of the world’s first sparkling wine: Blanquette de Limoux.
