There are rich folks who work hard to get richer in order to have their share of caviar, catshit (coffee) and Cadillac. And then there are men who snag a beautiful partner from the ‘rich folks’ over a champagne conversation to celebrate the toast of life. For both these men, Champagne is an elixir that will keep them alive and kicking in their bad days and be the ultimate uplifter in their sad days.
It’s not necessary that we open a champagne bottle cork on just birthdays, parties or honeymoons. They deserve to be opened on other special occasions as well, what better than celebrating Earth Day with a champagne glass in our hand.
However, we must make sure that the champagne we are chugging is organic compared to the traditional byproduct of grapes grown using pesticides and fertilizers. Here, on the occasion of Earth Day 2022, we bring to you a list of the five expensive yet tasteful organic champagnes you can pop to pay homage to Mother Nature.
