With National Champagne Day #ChampagneDay taking place Oct 26th, we thought we should do our part in honouring this very special bubbly. This event, now in its 3rd year is a global initiative with people worldwide blogging, tweeting, holding champagne parties, contests and more. Get ready to raise a flute to this quintessential wine of celebration and good cheer. Joining us in studio to help us celebrate we welcome Sarah Fazio Manager at Noble Estate Wine and Spirits, http://nobleestates.com representing the esteemed champagne house of Laurent Perrier. http://www.laurentperrier.com Laurent Perrier, founded in 1812 has been creating unique and elegant champagne for 200 years. We also discuss the allure of champagne, some of the history behind it, how it’s made, how to serve it and how to open it in a unique and entertaining way.

The Art of Sabrage, Learn how and impress!
Nothing says celebration like a little bubbly. So from Champagne, to Cava, Prosecco or Sparkling wine, bubbly served in a tall flute says the occasion is a special one. Why not ratchet it up a notch or two by opening your sparkling wine with flare befitting of the fabulous occasion. Now you too can practice the art of Sabrage, a technique for opening a Champagne bottle with a saber used for ceremonial occasions.
