Great memories of global #ChampagneDay last october 21

GLOBAL CHAMPAGNE DAY WITH DAMIEN-BUFFET CHAMPAGNE HOUSE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN SACY :

On 21/10/2016 we have welcome some tourists who wanted to take part of the event organized for global #ChampagnDay in Sacy, at family business winery and vines of Champagne DAMIEN-BUFFET House.

Early welcome for the first group with a coffee at the family business winery in Sacy.

Then guided and commented visit by Henry DAMIEN of our vines in the vineyard of Champagne (cepages cultivated are chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier) then demonstration of the pruning.

Visit of Sacy’s wine cooperative, with an opération of disgorgment of bottles of champagnes.

Return to the winery, 12 Châtillon’s street, 51500 Sacy, for and educative tasting of our champagnes and ratafia de Champagne with a snacking like during the harvest grapes. Like that people can imagine how is the life in a winery during this special period of harvest, life of the winegrowers, winemakers, grape harvesters.

Mireille Ruinart Créactions company proposed a working group to discover Twitter social media wines related.

Second group of tourists in the afternoon, with a very nice couple from Netherland. They didn’t know it was global Champagne Day and what it was. They were searching some advices to buy some champagnes bottles for their futur marriage. It’ll be a great wedding we wish them happiness all the best possible. They came with the other visitors, with Guillaume Perrin from la Marne Viticole newspaper and the team of video makers from France 3 Champagne-Ardenne TV who were there for a report.
