Some Bubbly Reads for World Champagne Day


F. Scott Fitzgerald once said, “I’ll drink your champagne. I’ll drink every drop of it, I don’t care if it kills me.” While he was famously a booze hound, on world champagne day, you can see his point. It is a crying shame that one of the world’s best wines is only socially accepted to drink on special occasions. Today provides the perfect excuse to pop a bottle of fizz (or two) and emulate the characters from the Great Gatsby on a regular Friday. Fitzgerald isn’t the only cultural icon partial to champagn; he is in good company. For World Champagne Day, here are some of our favourite champagne related quotes side-by-side with a few of our bubbly stories.
