Champagne flood in Riga!

 

Ready for champagne and bubble flood in Spring? Your beloved Bubble Parade is returning on March 2, when it will sparkle at Hanzas Perons!

 

We can’t wait to host you from 5pm to 9pm and also during the complimentary Champagne Gala Party that will continue the festivities from 9pm to 11.59pm. For the Gala Party we’ll secure some grand champagnes and a good party, while you make sure to bring your favourite champagne to share with your fellow champagne lovers!

 

And that’s not all! We kick-off the festival with Champagne Cup 2004 (a horisontal of 2004 Champagne vintage) on Thursday, Feb 29, continue with Champagne Night Out dinner on Friday, March 1, and conclude the festival with 7 decades of Taittinger Comtes de Champagne on Sunday, March 3!

Yours,

Riga Wine & Champagne

Riga Wine & Champagne festival is the largest and most decadent celebration of champagne, fine wine and food in the Baltic countries. Our mission is to spread the message of all things gourmet, while forming the reputation of Riga as the tastiest Baltic capital!

 

Riga Wine & Champagne takes place two times a year – in Spring and in Fall. Since our foundation in 2012 we have created numerous world-class tastings, masterclasses and dinners, established Latvia’s first competition of World wines judged by an international Jury headed by Michael Schuster, initiated the most anticipated tastings like Audi Bubble Parade, TOP 100 Wines + Chefs, Champagne Gala Dinner, EAT DRINK VOTE by Electrolux, as well as created an annual Wine of the Year guide aimed at Latvia’s wine lovers. In 2018 we also created the Baltic Wine List Awards in association with Cross Keys Gin to find out the best and most wine-lover friendly restaurants and bars in Riga, Vilnius, Tallinn.
 
Riga Wine & Champagne festival welcomes around 2500 foodies & wine lovers every year.
