What do you love about Champagne?

"Champagne is one of my favorite drinks, and I love it for several reasons. Most importantly, it allows for celebration and sharing amongst family members on special occasions such as weddings, graduations, New Years, etc. Even besides sharing with family and friends, there is something very special about these bubbles! Ultimately it is great on its own, or can match an incredible diversity of food."

What is your favorite Champagne pairing?

"Champagne with fish & chips"

How are you celebrating La Fête du Champagne Week?

"We will offer special Champagne by the glass and also for wine pairings. On top of that we also offer 130 different Champagnes by the bottle."
