Of all things - sparkling wine

Germans are the world's biggest fans of sparkling wine - of the approximately two billion bottles produced each year, one in five is drunk here. Reporter Sven Kroll sets out on a journey and takes a look behind the scenes at Germany's oldest sparkling wine producer. He learns from a winemaker how sparkling wine is made and what makes it so special. And he goes on a tasting tour with a sommelier. What does sparkling wine cost to produce and why are there such wide price ranges? Can the sommelier distinguish discount sparkling wine from a vintner's pearl wine? And how much are sparkling wine lovers prepared to pay for a bottle?
