La Grande Dégustation 

Montréal is celebrated with Champagne

Bubbles were needed to mark the 375th anniversary of Montreal. It is therefore the French region of Champagne that will be the region honored at the annual meeting of wine, beer and spirit lovers in Montreal: La Grande Dégustation.

After all, the two co-founders of Montreal, Jeanne Mance and Paul de Chomeday de Maisonneuve, were from Champagne!
