Champagne and Sparkling Wines
Many credit the discovery of champagne to the blind monk Dom Perignon. According to legend, he discovered a bottle of sparkling wine in the cave of his monestery and ran out shouting: "Come quickly brothers, I am drinking stars!"
True or not, sparkling wines of all sorts - noble champagnes, elegant proseccos, Spanish cavas and sparkling wines from around the globe - are used to celebrate everything: a new year, a new ship, an anniversary, a baby and great success.
Here are some offerings to help you send your best wishes for health, success and happiness.
