‘Champagne – Happy Birthday!!’ [August 4, 1693: Dom Pérignon ‘Drinks the Stars’]


August 4 is said to be the day Dom Pérignon invented Champagne back in 1693. In fact this bubbly trivia stirs up quite a bit of discussion regarding the fact that naturally occurring bubbles were seen as a problem at the time to whether or not his famous quote of ‘drinking with the stars’ is fictional or factual – No matter really.

What stands out the most is that Champagne has almost an omnipresence in our culture!
