This Graphic Explains How Champagne, Prosecco, and Cava Differ

Share

Not all sparkling wines are alike. While you may know that, the specific differences between the ever-popular champagne, trendy prosecco, and always-tasty cava are a bit more nuanced. This graphic from VinePair breaks them down easily, including how they’re made, where they’re made, and how to choose one.

Perhaps most obviously, champagne is distinctly French, because only sparkling wines made in the Champagne region can take the name. Cava and prosecco on the other hand are made in Spain and Italy respectively, and have different standards for how they get their names. All three wines have different levels of sweetness, and terms like “brut,” “extra brut,” and “demi-sec” describe that sweetness (“extra brut” and “brut” describe dry wines, while “sec” and “demi-sec” describe sweeter wines) and have nothing to do with quality, as some people assume. Each type of sparkling wine is also made from different kinds of grapes, and produced in specific regions, which is important to know before you go shopping.

How the Big 4 Social Platforms Differ: Members vs. Visitors

Share

Facebook has the most global members of any social network, but YouTube has the most monthly visitors, according to a recent report from Global Web Index.

The report was based on data from Global Web Index’s panel of Internet users age 16-64 from 31 countries (China excluded). Panelists were asked about their habits on four major social networks: Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Google+.

Some 81% of panelists are Facebook members, the most of any of the four social networks examined. Facebook also has the highest percentage of active users (42% of panelists).

However, YouTube has the most monthly visitors (i.e., people who do not necessarily log in) of the four networks. Some 82% of panelists say they visited YouTube in the previous month.

YouTube also has the most visitors in all regions tracked (the Americas, EMEA, and APAC), Global Web Index found.
