Tour de Champagne Is Back for Another Round !
For a second year, Tour de Champagne will head to San Francisco to delight local wine lovers. This year, Tour de Champagne will partner with the Bubble Lounge, San Francisco’s premier champagne lounge, and bring together champagne from a variety of prestigious champagne houses like Pol Roger, Perrier Jouet, Laurent Perrier as well as the Bubble Lounge’s own bubbly imports
Top-notch cuisine will be presented from some of the city’s most talented chefs and the Bubble Lounge will feature a couple of their new exciting desserts on the night of the event. Guests will have a chance to buy raffle tickets for special prizes, which will benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation. A portion of the ticket proceeds will also go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Ticket holders will also enjoy an Après Party with dessert, Cognac and more champagne.
Now in its fifth year, Tour de Champagne has popped into cities including Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Houston, San Francisco, New York and Washington D.C. In each city, the event joins forces with top local restaurants and chefs to create an unmatched champagne tasting experience.
The Bubble Lounge was established in New York City in 1996, and in San Francisco in 1998. The Bubble Lounge is a natural host of Tour de Champagne as they regularly feature over 300 different kinds of Champagne and have become a favorite for champagne and sparkling wine lovers. They feature small plates of French and California cuisine, and are introducing a brand new dessert menu. The Bubble Lounge has participated in Tour de Champagne New York and Washington DC.
Restaurants participating in the 2008 Tour de Champagne included Farallon, Top of the Mark, Ruth’s Chris, The Bubble Lounge, and White House Pastry Chef Roland Mesnier.
