The local government has decided that next year’s champagne auction is to be held on June 8th at which an even larger number of bottles might be sold. This is the day before the Ålands Island’s 90th autonomy day.
Additionally more of the organisation regarding the auction shall be handled by people external to the government. Attorneys-at-law DKCO has been hired to come up with a solution for how to organise the work concerning the champagne shipwreck, the world’s oldest champagne, and the world’s oldest beer.
