These functions are held three times each year in the Champagne area exclusively. Attendance is confined to members of the Ordre des Coteaux de Champagne and their guests together with select groups of leading personalities destined to become ambassadors at large for the wines of Champagne. Traditionnally each chapitre comprises an intronisation ceremony followed by a gala dinner.
In countries where the Order has embassies or consulates, namely in Austria, Belgium, Germany, Great Britain and Switzerland, one or two chapitres or informal gatherings are organised annually by the Order's representatives. These events are primarily intended for members and their guests in the countries concerned.
