Discover Maison Veuve Clicquot’s hidden treasure in the Baltic Sea
Calling all lovers of champagne and adventure! From Reims, Champagne to Åland Islands, embark for an exclusive and Solaire journey dedicated to the Art of Aging, from June 22nd to June 25th 2023.

It all started in 1840, when a ship transporting champagne bottles of Veuve Clicquot abord sank south of the Åland archipelago. In 2010, following the discovery of those bottles, the Maison created an ambitious oenological experiment: Cellar In The Sea. For the very first time, the Maison invites you to join this intimate Clicquot moment through a Solaire journey.
