Australia’s love affair with champagne continues, popping the second largest number of bottles in history in 2016, according to an announcement made by the Comité Champagne at Prowein in Germany overnight. “An exceptional sales record in 2015 was an anomaly, and 2016 figures perfectly fit Australia’s buoyant growth curve, popping an average of 600,000 more bottles every year since 2009,” said Tyson Stelzer, author of The Champagne Guide and host of the Taste Champagne event series.
