Almost no one is celebrating.

Global sales of champagne by the end of 2020 will be reduced by a third, predicts the Interprofessional Committee of champagne wines (CIVC), which unites manufacturers and sellers.

In the April-may from closing restaurants, bars and cancellation of celebrations of the sales of the drink fell by 75%, reports Reuters. In General due pandemic, the industry could lose about $ 1.9 billion.

IN CIVC hope that the opening of restaurants and bars will soften the blow.
