See you on August 8!
Although our Spring session was postponed due to covid-19 force majeure, we’re happy to announce that Bubble Parade will take place in the midst of summer!
We are happy to welcome you to Bubble Parade on Saturday, August 8, at the courtyard and garden of Latvian Academy of Arts. That location is not just perfect for champagne and bubbles, it’s so large it allows us to follow any recommendations by government officials and epidemiologists. There will be two sessions – Day session (12 – 15) and Night session (17 – 21).
Those of you, who had already purchased tickets for April’s Bubble Parade, are welcome to enter with your April tickets in hand. For those of you, who missed their chance to purchase tickets, there will be a small batch of tickets available in July – so stay tuned!
If you have a ticket to Champagne Gala Dinner or King of Cumieres dinner, we’ll be happy to transfer those to next Spring or replace with one of our Fall session events in November.
Happy to see you soon!
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.
