Origin of the Printemps des Champagnes

 

The Printemps des Champagnes, a week of Champagne wine tastings, held traditionally in April, has become in 

a few years the must-attend event for all wine professionals—importers, restaurant owners, sommeliers, wine

merchants, journalists and bloggers alike. It is a unique occasion, driven by winemakers wishing to showcase

the exceptional quality of their work and individuality of their terroir, for meeting the people who for several

years have been shifting the lines in the world of Champagne.

The originators of the event were the winegrower members of Terres et Vins de Champagne, who launched

their first still wine and Champagne tasting day in Aÿ in 2009. The event was an immediate success and the

group was successively joined by others in a spirit of cohesion. The Printemps des Champagnes now welcomes

professionals from over 40 countries who come to meet the women and men of Champagne and discover their

terroirs, year by year.
