Chapel Down launches in France with a sparkling event at Paris Fashion Week

We were delighted to mark the launch of our award-winning wines in France with a sparkling event at Paris Fashion Week last night.

We partnered with Ralph and Russo, cutting-edge British haute-couture fashion brand, at the opening night of Paris Fashion week on the Place Vendôme. Guests enjoyed glasses of Chapel Down as they celebrated this key moment in the year of high fashion. Global superstar Nelly provided the entertainment.

We are proud to announce a partnership in France with luxury wine distributor, Perles Du Monde. Led by Philippe Gauthier, former General Manager at Champagne Bollinger, the company specialises in importing premium wines from exciting regions around the world and supplying to France’s top hotels, restaurants and bars.

Chapel Down Managing Director, Mark Harvey, commented: “I am humbled and excited to think that Chapel Down will now be served at some of the finest establishments in France – a country with such a long and successful history in the world of sparkling wine! The initial reaction has been overwhelmingly positive. And what an occasion at which to launch – in the heart of Paris’s first arrondissement, the home of some of the world’s finest luxury brands.”

Perles du Monde founder, Philippe Gauthier, commented: “We are delighted to set up our partnership of English Sparkling Wines with Chapel Down. The French market, particularly at the premium end, is open and excited to discover new quality sparkling wines from wonderful origins other than France.”

Paris is the latest international city that we export to after we announced our wines were being exported to the United States in October, our wines are also available in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Tokyo, Singapore, Copenhagen and Helsinki.
