Champagne Day 27th October

“Come quickly, I am tasting stars,” Dom Perignon’s famous quote after his first taste of Champagne.

Tomorrow is Champagne day, a celebration of the beautiful bubbly wine from the Champagne region of France. Vineyards were first planted in this area of Northeast France by the Romans, and were cultivated by the 5th century.  The grapes used in production of Champagne are Pinot noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier, and the wine undergoes a secondary fermentation process to give the wine those classic delicate bubbles.

Here at Niederegger we can help but love a bottle of Champagne, and tomorrow we will be celebrating Champagne day by popping a cork. We also adore Champagne flavoured marzipan, really what could be better, combining the sumptuous taste of champagne with rich almond marzipan and topping it with sweet milk chocolate.

How about you treat yourself and taste the stars (and hearts).

The history of Lubeck

Lubeck, the small city in Germany has a culture even more beautiful than the taste of it’s chocolate produce; Niederegger. Lubeck, derived from the word ‘Liubuce’ meaning ‘the lovely’ or ‘the beautiful’, is a city who’s layout has remained unchanged since the 12th century. Nevertheless, Lubeck is a city full of history, so people can explore old churches, historic buildings and museums, achieving the greatest experience possible from a historic and cultured city. And the greatest thing that’s happened to Lubeck is obviously in our opinion the purest and most luxurious marzipan chocolate. So if you never get to visit Lubeck, you are sure to get a taste of the luxurious city with every mouthful of Marzipan.
