As novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald once said “too much of anything is bad, but too much champagne is just right.” How lucky for us that October 19 is Global Champagne Day
– a day to raise a glass of the quintessential wine of celebration. According to TWB-The Wine Bar’s
Wine Director Joshua Carlson, “Bubbles turn any occasion, whether meeting friends after work or dropping by after the game, into a mini-celebration. They’re also very food friendly and go with everything from brunch to oysters to popcorn.”
Where better to celebrate Global Champagne Day than at TWB –The Wine Bar
and Provence Marinaside
where they have 35 different bubbles on their wine list
including 17 French champagnes. Prices for bottles range from $45 – $1,750. If a bottle seems like too much of a good thing, you can always indulge your champagne passion with a glass or two. TWB has the largest selection of bubbles by the glass (35) including 17 French champagnes ranging from $28 for glass of Marie Demets Tradition Brut to $110 for the Louis Roederer Cristal if you are feeling very extravagant. Of course there are always non-champagne bubble options starting from $8 a glass./$45 bottle.
In honour of Global Champagne Day, TWB and Provence Marinaside will be offering 25 percent off all bubbles (both glasses and bottles) on Friday, October 19. If you can’t make it in, they’ll be offering the same discount for their regular Sparkling Saturday the following day.
“Everything is better with bubbles… life itself feels a little brighter when you’re sipping something sparkling. It’s going to be a lot of fun offering so many selections to our guests. Our wonderful patio, the view over-looking the Marina, and a glass of bubbles, is just about perfect when it comes to making your day exceptional,” concludes Carlson.
And don’t forget, Provence’s special three-course Taste of Yaletown menu starts this Thursday, giving you another tasty reason to drop by.Whether you are in a celebratory mood, need a pick-me-up, or looking to unwind after work, TWB-The Wine Bar
and next door Provence Marinaside
have you covered this coming weekend.
