04/08/1693 French Benedictine monk Dom Pérignon supposedly invents champagne

It is, however, a myth. Dom Pérignon did not invent sparkling vine. He made significant contributions to the production and quality of champagne wine, though. The sparkling wine didn't become the dominant style of Champagne wine until the mid-19th century. The bubbles are created by double fermentation.
