I wanna try soviet champagne. I don't know how to get one in Japan though. It would be fun.


Ha-ha. Bertrand, I like first picture made in my city :)

When we were small, it was always funny to put small chocolate pieces into the parent’s glasses with Champaign as the bubbles raised them up.


Excellent article! I've drunk so much of the stuff over the years, I've even visited one or two factories in Ukraine, and still I didn't know half of the facts you mention here.


Russian Champagne.....now definetly on my "bucket list" :-)

I studied at a university in West Germany in the mid 1980s. While there I visited Prague in the former Czechoslovakia. This sparkling wine was the most expensive and most prized of all alcoholic beverages in Prague during the Cold War. It was expensive by “behind the iron curtain” standards. I believe it was somewhere around $3 per bottle at that time. I bought a few bottles and shared with friends while I was there for a full week in the fall. It was delicious, refreshing, and a little sweeter than advertised. It went well with Gouda and Swiss cheese hor d'oeuvres, as well as with something sweeter like strawberries, chocolate, etc, Good memories!
