The Florida Wine Academy announced the 2020 events and dates for the premier Miami Champagne Week.
The annual celebration, now in its fifth year, will shift to a virtual landscape with four days of webinars celebrating all things champagne, from October 13 – October 16.
The week dedicated to the world-recognized French sparkling wine will be celebrated with webinars designed to educate, promote and create awareness about Champagne nationwide.
The festivities bring together some of the most prestigious Champagne experts in the industry to create unique and educational experiences for all Champagne enthusiasts, whether newcomers or experienced.
Miami Champagne Week was developed by the team at Florida Wine Academy, including Co-Founder and Director of Wine Education, Alessandra Esteves and Co-Founder and General Manager, Guilherme de Macedo.
The respected wine academy recently shifted all education services including WSET levels 1-3 in spirits, wines and sake, in addition to French Wine Scholar and Spanish Wine Scholar certifications to webinar format, where students can interact with educators virtually in real-time.
“We are excited to once again bring our love of Champagne to center stage with Miami Champagne Week 2020,” said Co-Founder of Florida Wine Academy, Alessandra Esteves. “We’re proud to spread the celebratory spirit of Champagne nationwide, specifically during a challenging year for the industry, with a series of not only educational but fun virtual events. The shift to online events does not limit us one bit, in fact, we’re ecstatic about the opportunity to now expand Miami Champagne Week worldwide with our interactive webinars,” she added.
The 2020 schedule for Miami Champagne Week will consist of virtual events led by the certified wine educators at Florida Wine Academy, featuring prominent leaders in wine including Master Sommeliers, Masters of Wine, and highly respected Champagne houses such as Perrier-Jouët and Ruinart.
Registration for the webinars will be open to the public with prices set at $15 and $20.
Participants will also have the opportunity to purchase wine packs from the Florida Wine Academy’s online shop, 305 Wines. The wine shop has advanced its delivery options for all Miami Champagne Week wine packs to include free shipping to Florida and 15 additional states.
