Riga Wine & Champagne!

See you in August, friends! 

 

Our jubilee season (we can’t believe it’s already ten years since our first masterclass) will explode in August with champagne and bubble flood! 

 

How about 1990 World Cup or 1990 Vintage Champagne tasting in the company of Peter Liem on August 4? Sure! An unmissable dinner Goodfellas or Single-vineyard champagnes in magnums on August 5? Absolutely! 

 

And then the grand finale – Riga’s annual Bubble Parade on August 6 featuring more than 100 champagnes and sparkling wines, a company of Champagne growers and house representatives, and our long-time friend Peter Liem! 

 

Don’t be afraid to jump into Champagne Gala Party that will complement the Bubble Parade from 9pm to 11pm – we’ll secure some fancy champagnes and musical performances, while you make sure to bring your favourite champagne to share with your fellow champagne lovers! 

 

Get your tickets for Bubble Parade and Champagne Gala Party at ekase.lv now, and write to us at rigawinechampagne@necom.lv if you’d like to attend one of the dinners! 
 
Can’t wait to see you soon! 

 

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.

We are very proud of the fact that some of the world’s most notable authors, experts and producers have visited Riga and are eager to visit us again - long-time friends Peter Liem (champagneguide.net), Michael Schuster, Andreas Larsson (World’s best sommelier 2007), and some of the world’s best known eksperts like Ian d’Agata, Richard Juhlin, John Kapon, Andrew Jefford, Mark Andrew MW, Essi Avellan MW, Michael Sager, our own Raimonds Tomsons (Europe’s best sommelier 2017) to name just a few.
