Champagne Ambassador's Award approaches

Published:  23 July, 2008

The fourth annual Champagne Ambassador's Award has been launched by the Comit Interprofessionnel du Vin de Champagne (CIVC).

Three UK finalists will be invited to compete in the national heat in London's Dorchester Hotel on September 15.

This year's theme for the awards focuses on the effervescent nature of Champagne.

Epernay will host the European final between October 20 - October 24 with competitors fighting out for the title of European Champagne Ambassador.

The competition is open to entrants from the UK, Germany, Belgium, Spain, France, Italy, Holland and Switzerland.

Franoise Peretti, director of the Champagne Information Bureau, said: "The European Champagne Ambassador's Award celebrates the passion and knowledge of Champagne educators.

"As the world's number one export market, the UK has a long tradition of Champagne expertise.

"This competition provides us with a wonderful opportunity to recognise and honour the exceptional wine education in our country."

UK entrants must return an application form - which can be downloaded at the website - by June 13.
