Champagne is the world's most festive drink and it is glorious. This directory features the best producers and the finest champagnes. At the back are pages listing champagne tours and vineyards you can go to and champagne bars in the U.S. and Europe. We were once taken to a champagne bar in Barcelona where we spend a blissfully blissed-out afternoon. I can recommend it as an experience to have before you die. Especially if someone else foots the bill!
