Which day is International Champagne Day? Friday October 19! True ‘champagne’ of course must be grown in the Champagne region of France and undergo specific practices such as secondary fermentation in the bottle.

Here at The Echo we could never be accused of being exactly ‘champagne socialists’; however, we do observe the regular but completely unofficial ‘Australian sparkling’ afternoons where beading, vintage, and the value of late disgorgement are secondary factors and price is king.

True champagne lovers, however, have a full month now to book in, then rebuild both the liver and the finances for the $225 a head four-course dinner at the Byron at Byron, where executive chef Matt Kemp will be teaming local produce with a ‘diverse selection of Champagne wines’ on the evening of Friday 19 October. See www.byronatbyron.com.au for details. Sounds fun!
