With champagne corks poised to pop at champagne events all over the globe, a select group of Australian lifestyle media will gather in Sydney to officially start the global celebrations, raising their glasses to toast ‘Sunrise On Global Champagne Day’ as the sun gets ready to set in Australian skies.
Hosted in the heart of Sydney at The American Club, with magnificent views over the world’s most famous harbour, by Global #ChampagneDay co-initiator and award-winning champagne expert Jayne Powell (aka Champagne Jayne), author of “Champagnes – Behind The Bubbles”, ‘Sunrise On Champagne Day 2011′ will feature twitter tastings of eight exclusive champagnes – from artisan grower to prestige cuvee.
“I love champagne and I can’t wait to be part of Global Champagne Day in Australia. I’m so looking forward to raising a glass with my fellow champagne loving friends – in person and online – to toast the most fascinating, bliss of bubbles there is – champagne,” said Champagne Jayne.
Champagne Social Media To Pop
Guests at ‘Sunrise On Champagne Day’ will also be entertained with snippets about the secret history of champagne drawn from Jayne’s new book “Champagnes – Behind The Bubbles” and be amongst the first in Australia to taste the new prestige cuvee Armand de Brignac, voted the no 1 champagne in the world by Fine Champagne Magazine. Articles and video interviews with the champagne makers featured in this celebration tasting will be posted LIVE during the event.
This invitation only Champagne 2.0 social media experience will be live tweeted and face booked around the globe and feature celebrity guests.
Champagne Jayne will be joined onstage by special guest Ed Carr, Australia’s most awarded sparkling winemaker (creator of ‘Arras’ – note: #notachampagnewine ) and Gourmet Traveller WINE magazine Winemaker of the Year 2011.
