On October 21, 2016, vineyards, bars, hotels and wine lovers the world over will celebrate the fourth annual Champagne day. While there are now many alternative ways to enjoy Champagne, if you're going to indulge in this most exclusive of drinks it pays to do so properly. With this in mind we caught up with Francoise Peretti, director of Champagne Bureau UK, to find out everything you need to know when serving Champagne on board.
Always ensure your store Champagne correctly
"The ideal way to store Champagne is in a temperature-constant room/space," says Peretti. "Champagne is a delicate wine which must be kept away from temperature variations and light. In the region, Champagne is kept in cellars - we currently have 1.2 billion bottles ageing in the champagne cellars." Of course, while it isn't possible to have a traditional wine cellar on your yacht, the best superyacht wine cabinets provide an excellent alternative.
