Tsogo Sun celebrates World Champagne Day

Delighting in a glass, or two, of champagne on the 23rd October 2015, is compulsory! World Champagne Day is the perfect ‘excuse’ for indulging in an evening of romance or celebration. The best news of all is you don’t have to rent a limousine en route to a fine French restaurant to impress your loved one – you can find all the ingredients of an evening to remember at the Southern Sun Hyde ParkSandton, who is joining the rest of the globe in the World Champagne Day celebrations.

There is no other drink that captures the romance and joy of a single moment as when the seal of a bottle of authentic champagne is broken. The cork pops, the bubbles fizz and the wine bursts out of the bottle with passion. The importance of the bubbles which has romanced many champagne lovers for centuries should not be underestimated – in fact scientists proved that there are millions of bubbles per flute of bubbly and these delightful pockets of air contributes to the look, taste, aroma and mouth feel of champagne. So it is completely natural to experience sensory overload when taking a sip of your champagne.

Champagne is sparkling wine, but not all sparkling wine is Champagne. At Tsogo Sun you can enjoy the real thing from the historic province of Champagne, in the northeast of France, and you can tantalise your taste buds for a fraction of the normal cost associated with the finest French champagnes.
