October 23 is International Champagne Day

This Friday, October 23, is the 11th annual global Champagne Day.

A worldwide virtual event, Champagne Day began in 2009 as the brainchild of Californian blogger and wine trainer Chris Oggenfuss.

Eleven years later, the event is stronger than ever and at least 30 million people participated across the globe in 2019.

So join a global community of Champagne lovers and treat yourself to the good stuff that only comes from Champagne, France.

And why not leave the house and visit your favourite local for a crisp glass of bubbles – no need for COVID-restricted Zoom catch-ups this time!

The new Champagne platform also gives the opportunity for restaurants, bars and wine retailers to organise events around Champagne, register your event here.
