'TINY BUBBLES' STACK UP IN A BIG WAYAS KORBEL CHAMPAGNE AND SAFEWAY GO FOR WORLD RECORD

 ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- The world's single-largest display of champagne will be built at a Safeway Supermarket in Alexandria, Va., from more than 5,800 bottles of Korbel California Champagne. The display will be completed and ready for the public to view Wednesday, Dec. 16.
 The record-setting project, which will be submitted to "The Guinness Book of Records" by Korbel, will be constructed at Safeway Store No. 0003, 3526 King Street. The 5,857-bottle display will represent 1,162.25 gallons of 37,192 four-ounce servings of Korbel champagne. This tops Korbel's previous record display which was constructed of 4,200 bottles in Plano, Texas, last month.
 If accepted by Guinness, the Korbel display will join the ranks of two other champagne-related records:
 -- World's Longest Flight of Cork From a Champagne Bottle: 177 feet
 and 9 inches, set in 1988; and
 -- World's Greatest Number of Stories Achieved in a Champagne
 Fountain: 44 glasses high or 24 feet and 8 inches tall, using
 10,404 long-stem champagne flutes, set in 1984.
