An evening of fine champagne from over twelve producers returns for 2nd anniversary

March 18, 2010, San Francisco, CA – The popular Tour de Champagne will head to San Francisco for its second anniversary for what promises to be a sparkling evening highlighted by many of the Champagne region’s top wine producers. 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 grand marques as well as grower champagne houses: cuisine from some of the city’s most talented chefs and live entertainment. During the evening, guests will have a chance to buy raffle tickets for a special prize, 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.

WHAT: Now in its fifth year, Tour de Champagne has brought its effervescent event to many 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 Lounges feature over 300 different kinds of champagnes and sparkling wines, and have become the go to glamour spot for champagne lovers.  They feature small plates of French and California cuisine, and both are introducing a brand new dessert menu for the spring.  The Bubble Lounge has participated in Tour de Champagne in New York and Washington DC.

Restaurants participating in the last San Francisco Tour de Champagne included Farallon, Ruth’s Chris, The Bubble Lounge, and the desserts of White House Pastry Chef Roland Mesnier. This year’s culinary greats will be announced soon! Visit for the most current information. Bringing chefs and sommeliers together from San Francisco’s finest restaurants promises to be the culinary treat of 2010.
