Champagne Bureau Launches Champagne Fables

Washington, D.C. - The Champagne Bureau is pleased to announce the release of its first collection of Champagne Fables. These stories and illustrations highlight the history richness of Champagne and its fabled wine. The fables released include A Fable of Faith, A Fable of Courage, A Fable of Santé, A Fable of Victory, and The Fabled Wine.

The Champagne Fables were developed with Champagne author Ed McCarthy as well as illustrator Christoph Niemann who created original sketches for each fable. His designs have enlivened the covers of  The New Yorker, Newsweek, Wired, The New York Times Magazine and American Illustration.

“Champagne is not only a legendary wine; it has a timeless history. The Champagne Fables were conceived as a fun way to share inspiring tales” said Sonia Smith, director of the Champagne Bureau. “We celebrate the legend of Dom Pérignon, the marvellous women of Champagne, and some famous lovers of Champagne, such as  Napoleon Bonaparte and Winston Churchill. .”  

The Fables were officially introduced at a launch party during The New Yorker Passport to the Arts festival. Guests sampled Champagne, while viewing the illustrations.

We invite everyone to preview the collection at www.champagnefables.com <http://www.champagnefables.com>  and vote for their favorite fable. Those who visit the site can  share the fables with their social media networks.
