Champagne has more and more competitors. The world-wide demand for sparkling wines is increasing but today Champagne has to struggle for attention amongst Prosecco, Cava and many other bubbly wines from different countries. But Champagne is still without a doubt the most interesting region for sparkling wines. Not least thanks to the large variety of styles. And today, with so many excellent Champagnes from small, independent producers, the variation is bigger than ever.

These independent producers often make small quantities of Champagne and always only from their own grapes. They do not buy grapes from others, like the Champagne houses do. Perhaps they have vines only in one village, which gives them the opportunity to show the terroir from that particular village. They want to make Champagnes with character. And they would like their Champagnes to be drunk like a still wine, with food, and not just as an aperitif. On the spring wine tour to Champagne we will taste Champagnes both from the houses and from the independent producers. The Champagne wine tour takes place in April. Book now!

We are publishing a new rather unique book on Champagne this winter so you can be sure to get the latest insights.
