I watched a repeat the other day on UKtv Gold and it talked about champagne bubbles being caused by dirt in the glass? Is this correct and how exactly does this work? Can anyone explain as I am receiving lots of abuse at work for lying and if Stephen Fry said it then its true! Please help me so I can prove how this works! Cheers

The bubbles have problems forming on nothing, they require so called points of nucleation, this is the dirt and stuff left behind on a perfectly (sic) clean glass. Glasses that have been through a dishwasher have apparently some difficulty forming champagne bubbles.

He never actually told the story of when he was at the party held by the Duke and Duchess of Westminster, did he?
