Default Sparkling Wine

I have been toying with the idea of making a sparkling wine. All the info i have found online suggests using a champagne yeast and bottle conditioning.

I make a Strawberry/Mango wine that i think would be great as a sparkling wine.

So my question is could this wine be made like normal then just forced carbed in the keg like beer. Then bottled with the beer gun. I dont see any reason that it would not work. Not sure how many Vols to carb it to. I was thinking around 3.2 or so. Then i have never tried to bottle beer thats been carbed over 3 Vol.

Does anyone out there do this?

My understanding is that if you go much over 3 volumes then you should use champagne bottles (stopper/cork and cages) which are meant to hold higher pressures. Regular beer bottles can't take the pressure and may explode.

Sparkling wine must be carbed well above 3.2. Some hefeweizens are carbed to 5 vol.
