5th Annual New York Champagne Week

It’s the 5th Birthday of New York Champagne Week! We can’t believe that five bubbly filled years have flown by this fast. And, we’re celebrating in a big way!

For the first-year ever, the bulk of the fizz-fueled complimentary trade events will be taking place at one location — The Hotel Eventi – A Kimpton Property. The aim is to cultivate an atmosphere for drinks trade, media and bubbly lovin’ enthusiasts alike to enjoy hours or even spend the entire day at the hotel hub. We’ll be offering Champagne cocktail specials at The Vine NYC including a special 5th Birthday Champagne Week sparkling cocktail. During the day complimentary to the drinks trade and media events will take place featuring creative seminars, interactive tastings and intriguing pairing experiences. In the evening, hosted happy hours coupled with enhanced Champagne by the glass and bottle lists will be featured at L’Amico and The Vine NYC restaurants will be offered.

Founded by wine and spirits special events planner and owner of CitySip.com, Blaine Ashley, the original New York Champagne Week celebrates the approachability and diversity of real Champagne through a variety of accessible, fun and sparkly experiences.
