Alsace is the biggest sparkling wine producing region in France.

Answer: False.

Champagne is the largest producing 60% of all French sparkling wine (330 million bottles annually.) Alsace places second producing 6% of the sparkling wine overall production (roughly 35 million bottles a year.) Most sparklers from Alsace are labeled Crémant d’Alsace, and are made from Pinot Blanc, even though Auxerrois, Pinot Gris, Riesling, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir grapes are allowed.
