See you again on Nov 22 - 25, 2018!
Riga Wine & Champagne is the first and most exciting champagne & fine wine festival in the Baltic countries with an extensive programme of tastings, masterclasses and dinners! That just means we're trying hard to spread the message of fine wine, champagne and good food, while forming the reputation of Riga as the Baltic’s foodie capital! Now mark your calendars for November 22-25 - we'll announce the programme during summer!
Since its foundation in 2012, we have established the country’s most anticipated tastings like «Wine of the Year Top 100», «Audi Bubble Parade», «Champagne Gala Dinner», «EAT DRINK VOTE» by Electrolux, as well as created the Baltic Wine List Awards in association with Amber Beverage Group.
We are very proud of the fact that some of the world’s most notable authors, experts and producers have visited Riga and are desperate to visit us again! Long-time friend Peter Liem (champagneguide.net), chairman of our Wine of the Year Jury Michael Schuster (UK), Jury member of Baltic Wine List Awards Andreas Larsson (World’s best sommelier), and special guests Richard Juhlin (Sweden), Andrew Jefford (UK), Essi Avellan MW (Finland), Tim Wildman MW to name just a few.
