It’s safe to say we’re all ready for the New Year. You might be counting down to midnight this year from home, but celebrations still call for bubbly. VIVANT is here to transport you to Champagne without leaving your couch. Just in time to raise a glass to 2021, four new Live Experiences from Champagne have landed.
The new experiences feature organic and biodynamic producers making champagne with respect for you and the environment. You can now save your spot and travel the future of wine to Champagne, the world’s most famous sparkling wine region. Sessions start December 20, 2020.
Each experience has an optional three-bottle Experience Kit with responsibly made champagnes hand-selected by VIVANT so you can taste and enjoy while meeting producers and learning about the region and its wines.
Live Experiences from Champagne
In “The Roots Of Champagne,” learn about the region’s unique terroir. “Bottling Magic in Champagne” focuses on la méthode champenoise, the distinctive techniques used to create this exceptional sparkling wine. “The Wine That Never Sleeps” dives into the story of how champagne became an international symbol of celebration. A fourth experience spotlights producer Larmandier-Bernier in the Côte des Blancs.
A new generation in Champagne
The experiences immerse you in the stories of the new generation of winemakers in Champagne carrying on tradition while forging their own path in the long legacy of the region. Fanny Heucq of Champagne André Heucq shares how she’s empowering her family and other independent winemakers. At Champagne De Sousa, the young siblings now running their family estate will charm you with their sincerity and devotion to excellence in caring for the environment and winemaking.
You’ll also meet producers like the charismatic Morgane Fleury, who owns a shop in Paris where she sells her family’s Champagne Fleury, and Arthur Larmandier who recently returned to his family estate Champagne Larmandier-Bernier to learn organic viticulture and winemaking from his parents.
Champagne’s success is the result of a combination of an uncommon terroir, an innovative winemaking technique, grand aspirations, and dedicated winemakers. There’s no better time than the holidays to experience the alchemy of responsibly produced bubbles.
At a time when we can’t all be together, virtually traveling to Champagne with family and friends in a Live Experience, meeting fascinating producers, and tasting their naturally made wines is a great way to ring in 2021. Save your spot for one of these immersive experiences on New Year’s Eve or any time this holiday season.
