Event Details


On October 28th, 2011

Hello Champagne lovers!

Welcome to the 2nd  annual #ChampagneDay.  An annual social media event made possible by YOU!.  What fun we had at the inaugural #ChampagneDay last year! This year we are bubbling over with excitement because we have bigger and better plans and exciting activities and opportunities. 

All you have to do to participate is get some champagne, which incidentally only comes from the Champagne region of France,  in your glass on October 28th 2011.  Share your photos, tasting notes, experiences or videos on any social media site, and be sure to add the #ChampagneDay hash tag.

You'll be able to search what other wine lovers are sharing by searching posts using tools like Tweetdeck, Google, or to name a few.  This is a global event set to run 24 hours in order to give everyone time to share a glass when it makes sense in their time zone.

Participating Champagne Houses:



As part of this celebration, the Champagne Bureau is hosting a contest to recognize authentic Champagne and will give away a new iPad 2 to one lucky winner.  


To win an iPad 2 or one of four other prizes, send a picture of an authentic Champagne label to or post the picture to your Facebook profile and tag yourself and the Champagne Bureau in the picture. One Grand Prize winner will be selected randomly and receive an iPad 2. Four runners-up will receive an exclusive Champagne tasting kit.

There are many quality sparkling wines produced worldwide, but true Champagne only comes from Champagne, France. Its name can only be used on a label if the grapes and the wine are produced, under strict controls, in the French region of Champagne. But today, over 50 percent of sparkling wines sold in the U.S are improperly labeled “Champagne.” To promote appreciation for and protection of true Champagne, the Champagne Bureau is asking you to send and post pictures of authentic Champagne labels starting today.

Contest entrants may submit multiple entries to increase their chances of winning. All entries must be unique, as duplicate entries will not be considered. For more information about this contest, please visit
