Why is sparkling wine sparkling?

Sparkling wine is sparkling because it goes through a 2nd fermentation process. When making sparkling wine, the grapes are first turned into regular wine, and then the regular wine is made into sparkling wine through either a traditional method (where the sparkling party happens in the bottle) or a tank method (where the sparkling party happens in the tank before bottling).
