Happy #ChampagneDay! Celebrate the unique sparkling wine that only comes from Champagne @TheWineLadies

We are bubbling over with excitement for this week’s show because #ChampagneDay, October 24th  is just around the corner, and we are going to mark this very special day by devoting the whole show to the magic, the allure, the history and the enjoyment of  this  most delectable bubbly.

We’ve got an awesome line up of guests joining us from various corners of the globe starting with Washington D.C. … from the Champagne Bureau USA … we will be speaking with Sam Heitner who will give us the scoop on many of the celebrations going on around the world, we’ll also chat a little about the history of Champagne… and there is a little discord out there on how it was discovered… we’ll chat about the region, how its made, how best to enjoy it and the different styles as well.

 The popularity of Champagne is also just growing and growing…. It’s not just for celebrations anymore… and who would know that better than our second guest, calling in from Chicago, Illinois, Craig Cooper who has been with POPS for Champagne for 13 years, this is a wine bar that specializes in Champagne and sparkling wine and prides themselves on having one of the largest and most dynamic selections in the USA, we’ll get the scoop on what’s hot, what’s not, what food to go with your fizz!

 Lastly from the United Kingdom, we said we were all over the map, we will be welcoming on the line Christopher Walkey, the founder of “Glass of Bubbly” a Champagne and Sparkling Wine Magazine and website that boasts an international readership and following, just in its first year… with many celebrities asking  Glass of Bubbly to be interviewed for the magazine…. now that’s a switch!Loads info, fun and food with our  favorite fizz coming up!

ASK THE WINE LADIES…

What is the origin of cheers and clinking glasses?

Dear Wine Ladies,

At a recent pub gathering a few friends and I we were in a particularly celebratory mood and proceeded to clink our glasses and boisterously announce “cheers” every chance we got. I was just wondering how this custom got started? Why do we say cheers when we clink our glasses and can we only participate with an alcoholic drink?

Well I was definitely in a pink kinda mood this week and was looking at the world through rose colored glasses. 

Why you ask???…. well because it was my birthday and I celebrated in style, including a party bus, limo style (Just For U Limo Bus) for my fantastic friends, a happening restaurant (Strada West Eat and Sip House) in Niagara Falls and of course a glass or two of champagne…. in fact pink champagne…My favourite colour and nothing says celebration more to me than a glass of crisp, rosé  champagne in a long stem fluted glass.

And I’m not the only one, shipments of rosé from the Champagne region of France have enjoyed significant growth in the U.S.—just last year over 2.7 million bottles of rosé Champagne were shipped to the U.S., making up 15.3% of all shipments in the USA.

My pick is the exquisite Moët & Chandon Brut Rosé Imperial…simply radiant!, a style distinguished by its fine bubbles, rich red berry fruit, its seductive palate and its elegant maturity with a long finish! Sounds just like me..!!!In our market here about $77.00 and well worth the price. I even brought out my saber the night of my party and opened it up in style!
