Champagne has been part of so many celebrations throughout various seasons of life. But this is the day to not only celebrate something with champagne, but to actually celebrate champagne.

Global Champagne Day offers a delightful opportunity to show appreciation for and raise a glass to this delightfully bubbly and exuberant wine!

History of Global Champagne Day

Champagne has roots that can be traced all the way back to the 13th century in France and other parts of Europe. But it wasn’t until several hundred years later, in the 17th century, that began its increase in popularity.

Global Champagne Day got its start in 2009 when it was established by a passionate wine tutor and blogger, Chris Oggenfuss. While champagne is definitely a product of France (in fact, it can only come from this certain region in France!), the founding of Global Champagne Day has roots in the United States, specifically the state of California, where Oggenfuss is from.

The purpose of the day is a simple one in that it is a day that is set aside to honor this wine that has been a favorite guest at various celebrations including weddings, graduations, coronations and parties for many years!
