Pop a cork for NZ Bubbles Day tomorrow!

The long weekend will be off to a magical start, with unicorn-themed NZ Bubbles Day celebrations to kick-off this Friday.

New Zealand wine and lifestyle company Sip NZ has teamed up with leading local sparkling wine producers for a collaborative initiative called Sip NZ Bubbles, beginning with the first-ever NZ Bubbles Day this Friday, October 20.

“October 20th is traditionally International Champagne Day which is the perfect occasion to put New Zealand bubbles onto the map for Kiwi wine lovers,” says Caro Jensen, co-founder of Sip NZ.

“The first Sip NZ Bubbles initiative marks the Year of the Unicorn. Like unicorns, bubbles are mythical in their origin and bring a sense of magic and sparkle to almost any occasion”, says Emily, co-founder of Sip NZ.

The on-trend initiative promotes a wide range of New Zealand-made bubbles to suit any budget and magical gathering including sparkling wines from Giesen, Hunter’s, No 1 Family Estate and Yealands.

Wine-lovers can get involved by posting their sparkling, unicorn moments on Facebook and Instagram with the hashtags #nzbubblesday and #sipnzbubbles.
