Why Champagne is so Expensive

Champagne is only true champagne if it’s made in the Champagne region of northern France. A decent-quality bottle of it can cost you anywhere from $50 to $300, and vintage bottles often sell for thousands.

All other sparkling wines made outside of this region, even those from neighboring parts of France, must be labeled differently. Champagne often costs double the price of other sparkling wines, such as prosecco or cava.
