We held a simple vision in that we wanted to create a brand that enabled all sparkling wines an equal voice and a dedicated platform from which to speak from. Listening to what the industry requires and understanding the ways in which audiences digest information has allowed us to create a unique approach to promoting sparkling wines both online and at our events and guest appearances in the media spotlight / live events.

We are dedicated to promoting sparkling wines from far and wide, there are no boundaries – We are building bridges and channels of communication so that more and more people can discover the amazing world of fizz that has captured so many hearts and admirers over the years.” Eve Walkey, co-founder of Glass of Bubbly
