Another year has passed. What a year 2021 has been. We swore in a new president, got vaccinated against COVID-19, and burst into âSquid Gameâ on Netflix. I know many of us can’t wait to celebrate New Years and so are we. I mean, how can you not love countdowns, ball drops, party horns and of course, champagne?
We don’t know when champagne became synonymous with New Year’s Eve, but we are on board. Champagne is a sparkling wine produced in the Champagne region of France. One of the most important figures when it comes to champagne is Dom PÃ©rignon, who was a French Benedictine monk. PÃ©rignon lived from 1638 to 1715 and had a huge impact on the production and quality control of wine in Champagne, France. It of course inspired the vintage Dom PÃ©rignon champagne, first introduced in 1921 and first marketed in 1936. Other luxury champagne brands include MoÃ«t & Chandon, Bollinger, Pol Roger and Veuve.
Another notable champagne figure is Marie-Antoinette, who had the champagne glass modeled on her left breast. Many musicians have written about champagne over the years, as noted in “Blue Champagne” by Glen Miller, “Champagne Life” by Ne-Yo and “Champagne RosÃ©” by Quavo.
