Friday, October 28 is Champagne Day in South Africa


FRIDAY 28 October 2022 is #ChampagneDay – a very special day when Champagne lovers raise a toast to the beloved gift that the Champagne region in France bestowed upon the world.

Celebrate with flair and pop open a bottle of Bollinger, the epitome of sophisticated style and distinguished elegance. Champagne aficionados worldwide including the British Royal Court, the delightful Absolutely Fabulous duo Patsy and Edina, and of course James Bond, a man of impeccable taste, all adore Bollinger, so you’ll be in fine company. 

Raise your glass to Madame Lily Bollinger, one of the grande dames of Champagne who was head of the House of   Bollinger from 1941 until her death in 1977, and commemorate her remarkable contribution to Bollinger and the Champagne industry as a whole. 

When asked in an interview when to drink Champagne, Madame Bollinger famously replied: “I drink my Champagne when I’m happy and when I’m sad. Sometimes I drink it when I am alone. When I have company, I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I’m not hungry and drink it when I am.  Otherwise, I never touch it – unless I am thirsty”

There really is a lot that’s special about Bollinger’s Brut Special Cuvée, an icon among non-vintage Champagnes. That’s why it has become the signature bottling of the Bollinger estate, one of the world’s most revered Champagne houses. The Bollinger Special Cuvée displays a beautiful aromatic complexity: roasted apples and ripe peaches with gentle citrus nuances. It is an elegant creamy cuvée with pear and brioche flavours and notes of fresh walnuts with a long refreshing finish. 

Bollinger Special Cuvée, packaged in an elegant gift box, is available nationally for approximately R1100. Contact Ginette de Fleuriot at Vinimark, 021 883 8043 or email [email protected]
