Title
(EN) Systems, Methods, and Apparatuses to optimize all stages of production of sparkling wine using the Champagne method
Abstract
(EN)

Systems, methods, and apparatuses to optimize all stages of sparkling wine production using the ‘Champagne’ method. For instance, there is a specially configured apparatus utilized for a method for producing sparkling wine within the wine bottle through a secondary fermentation. The apparatus is attached to the wine bottle to seal in pressure. Specifically, a neck collar of the apparatus is positioned upon a neck section and a sealing cap is pressed onto a mouth opening wine bottle above the neck collar and coupled to the neck collar of the apparatus. A tensioner of the apparatus induces a clamping force between the neck collar and the sealing cap to seal the pressure generated from fermentation. A pressure indicator measures and displays pressure which is retained and limited to a maximum pressure within the bottle via a Pressure Reduction Valve (PRV) of the apparatus. Sediment from fermentation is removed without freezing via a riddling operations and evacuation of sediment from an inverted bottle through a ball valve configured within the apparatus. Other related embodiments are disclosed.
