For Harpers 3rd annual Champagne Summit hosted in London on February 28th 2012, a select group of champagne enthusiasts across the world will gather in ‘virtual appreciation’ to celebrate the #ChampagneSummit by sharing stories online. Comments, posts and videos about this famous fine wine will be contributed over 24 hours by a melange of connected consumers, lifestyle bloggers, journalists, and champagne trade in New York, London and Sydney using the tweet chat #hashtag #CJCS12.
Hosted by award-winning writer, educator and respected independent champagne expert Jayne Powell (aka twitter’s @ChampagneJayne) in conjunction with Harpers Wine and Spirit Trades Review, this global champagne “tweet chat” masterclass will feature tastings of seven exclusive champagnes – from artisan grower styles to prestige cuvees.
