In case you missed it, tomorrow is Global #ChampagneDay!! (Note this is champagne, which is specifically limited to sparkling wine from the Champagne regio
n of France. Even Cremant, sparkling wine from other regions of France, is not Champagne. So please leave that bottle of Gloria Ferrer or Barefoot for #SparklingDay.
There are many events happening around the world from the heart of the Champagne region to Japan to Australia to South America and of course, in the USA. You can locate an event near you by visiting this interactive Google map http://t.co/wVGqMyqe.
There is also a live video tasting for #ChampagneDay on toutsuite.com
