Champagne vinegar can also be made at home by allowing champagne to sit in open, wide-mouthed jars for several weeks. Once the champagne turns to vinegar, it keeps for up to six months in covered jars or bottles. Champagne vinegar, which is less pungent than regular vinegar, can be used in sauces, salad dressings and marinades.
