WASHINGTON —Today, October 20, marks the eighth annual Champagne Day, where wine lovers around the globe raise a glass to the quintessential wine of celebration, good cheer and toasts everywhere: Champagne. Champagne Day offers wine enthusiasts worldwide an opportunity to enjoy the sparkling wine that only comes from Champagne, France both online through social media and at in-person events throughout the country.
“Champagne is so synonymous with celebrations that it only makes sense to have a day dedicated to celebrating this unique sparkling wine,” said Jennifer Hall, Director of the Champagne Bureau, USA. “Champagne Day is the perfect occasion for everyone around the world to open a bottle and raise a glass to the one-of-a-kind sparkling wine that only comes from Champagne, France.”
Champagne Day was first started eight years ago to recognize and appreciate the sparkling wine that comes exclusively from Champagne, France. Today, this worldwide social media event brings together millions of wine lovers who celebrate this day by hosting events and blogging, tweeting and commenting on all aspects of this unique bubbly.
To celebrate Champagne Day and support consumer interest in this unique wine, the Champagne Bureau, USA, hosted a contest where individuals submitted photos and videos illustrating how they planned to raise a glass on October 20. Valid entries exclusively showcased authentic Champagne and supported the sentiment expressed in the statement: "Champagne only comes from Champagne, France." The Bureau is pleased to announce that Jennifer Morse of Sherman Oaks, California is the winner of a $150 Visa gift card. A link to Jennifer’s winning photo can be found here.
“I’m always excited for an excuse to open a bottle of Champagne so this contest was a win-win,” said Jennifer Morse. “I think it’s amazing that there is a day dedicated to celebrating this unique wine that can only come from Champagne, France!”
Consumers across the U.S. will have many opportunities to enjoy Champagne today with a host of Champagne Day-only events at selected retail stores, restaurants, bars and other spontaneous celebrations.
