This post is all about champagne quotes and quotes about champagne to remind readers that there is always a reason to celebrate.

When it comes to celebrating special occasions, moments or milestones, there is one beverage that is considered the go-to tipple for magical moments. Of course, I am talking about the much loved, sparkling, glittering, and bubbly golden liquid that the world knows as Champagne.

After all, what’s not to love! The immersive experience of untwisting the wire restraint from the bottle, the delicious popping of the cork, the excitement of the fizz and the sizzling sound it makes as it hits the glass, and the celebratory cheer that so often follows.

And of course, there’s the taste. The light bodied, fruity flavors, delectably married with the nutty and toasty hints that hit your palate … an overall indulgent experience.

Champagne is truly a drink made for celebrations and a reminder of the good times that life has to offer. So often, these special moments are captured on camera. What better way to share these memories with family and friends than by distributing these images in thank you cards or letters, or in images posted to social media.

However you choose to share the moment, we’ve sourced over 130 Champagne quotes and captions that will get you in the mood for celebrating and living the good life!
