Ways to Celebrate Champagne Day October 23, 2020
Perhaps one of my first sips of “wine” was champagne, when traveling in Florida, and it was a fancy bottle: Dom Perignon. Of course, I loved it, and I was hooked on champagne from that moment on.
Even so, I can’t always afford an expensive bottle of Champagne every day, but rest assured, the Champagne region of France offers bottles for every budget. Test your champagne knowledge and prepare for the special day (or any day) by visiting the official online Champagne education course. Read on for ways to celebrate Champagne day on October 23, 2020.

Prefer not to leave home? While Champagne day may fall on a workday, invite friends and/or family over for a champagne tasting and brunch. Entertaining is always more fun with your friends. and my favorite is hosting my BFFs. Invite the “girls” to bring their own bottle of Champagne and add experience more champagne tasting to your brunch.

Stock up on Champagne for National Champagne Day
Need I say more? I always have at least two bottles chilling, just in case.
Order the Press for Champagne Button or Bell
Yes, it is a thing! The “emergency” press for champagne button literally summons a white-gloved waiter to your table with a selection of champagne. Feel free to order your own from Etsy, but it’ll cost extra for that champagne-beck-and-call waiter. For those on a budget, consider purchasing a champagne bell.
