Since 2008, the Magazine Euposia, along with the Grand Jury Europèen (the highest authority in Europe for professional tastings), organizes the first and only World Championship, in blind, reserved for Sparkling Wines (extra brut, brut, pas dosè) produced with the classic method.

The “classic method” is the “bottle rifermentation” codified in the midseventeenth century and represents the excellence in the production of wines.

Famous Classics method are: the Champagnes, the Spanish Cavas, the Blanquette de Limoux, the Loire and Alsace Cremants, the south-africans “Cap Classique”, the British “Merreth method” and the Italian Franciacorta, Trentodoc, Oltrepo, Alta Langa and Lessini Durello.
