The Lambrusco grape was largely produced in the northern Europe and the United States of America during the 1980s.

The Lambrusco wines were the most favourite of all other wines. Their demand was so high that the makers had to introduce new methods to produce the bulk of Lambrusco wines in order to fulfil the rising demand.

In the early 21st century, the Lambrusco wine was one of the highest profile wines. The name and fondness for Lambrusco wines are still the same, but the fermentation procedure has changed during the course of time.

This method is called as Charmat or tank method. This method is most widely used in Italy.
