Celebrate International Champagne Day!

October has always been one of my favorite months of the year; the changing of the leaves, the chill in the air and of course.... pumpkin season! However this year I am more enamored with this month than ever as I learned that Friday, October 26 has been decreed the third annual International Champagne Day!

What exactly is this one may ask? It is a social media event and day designated to enjoying the beauty of Champagne and is celebrated all over the world. How can you participate? There are many ways whether you want to throw a party at your home, pop open that bottle you have been saving or go and partake at one of the events locally. Be sure to post what you're tasting on Facebook, Twitter , Instagram or whatever your favorite social media medium may be. To find out where events are being held in your area and to participate check out the events page on Eventbrite.

I will be starting my celebration with a Rose from my favorite Champagne, the first established Champagne House in 1729...Ruinart. For my tasting notes and food pairings throughout the day follow me on Facebook , twitter @PoisedPalate and on Instagram @PoisedPalate.

Keep in mind, while lovely, sparkling wines are are not Champagne. It is only Champagne if it comes from the Champagne region in France itself.

A votre sante!
