Two glasses of champagne

Why Do We Drink Champagne on New Year?

A good glass of indulgent wine is the ideal way to welcome the New Year. Don't scrimp on the liquid that fills your cups and glasses this Christmas season, whether it be elegant red wines or more expensive Champagnes. Additionally, a toast isn't complete without a drink of wine or Champagne to celebrate the event!

Champagne is a perfect example of a fault becoming a benefit for civilization. When French wine was bottled before it had finished fermenting, the yeast grew active, and the wine began to bubble. For years, it was believed that the fizz would cover up lousy wine, but after nearly a decade of tinkering, producers mastered the art of creating fresh, exquisite champagnes.

Have you ever questioned why Champagne is served on New Year's Eve? Why not whiskey? The solution may be found in the money trail, just like with most things in life. During the 16th century, only the elite could afford this expensive drink, so royalty and aristocrats would often drink champagne at their parties. In particular, these aristocrats often enjoyed it to celebrate the new year. In the past 200 years though, champagne has become much more affordable, and it is now available to everyone.
