Champagne holds a special place for all of us…it is the ultimate sparkling wine to pop to celebrate an event or milestone.  Unfortunately the term champagne is often used to designate any sparkling wine but most people may not know that Champagne can only be called Champagne if it comes from the Champagne region in France.  You may also not be aware that the ultimate Champagne tasting event is being run in August, Taste Champagne 2018.  It is the ultimate chance to try a huge range of Champagnes and even take away a Riedel Veritas Champagne Glass.  It is being held in all mainland capital cities and more details can be found here:
