How do they get the cork in a champagne bottle?

Champagne is corked more or less by the same kind of machine that corks other wines. The difference is that Champagne is corked twice. The first time the bottle is corked the yeast is left in the partially fermented wine so that fermentation continues in the bottle. That is how you get the bubbles. Then the bottle is uncorked, the yeast sediment removed, and the bottle is recorked fast enough to keep the bubbles.

The cork is soaked in liquid, usually water, prior to corking so it is pliable enough to be inserted into the bottle. It has the tapered shape to prevent the gases from escaping.

They use a machine called, not surprisingly, a corker.
