The French #Winophiles Monthly Chat on Women of Champagne

Champagne Marie Césaire

I am excited to host my very first French #Winophiles chat on one of my favorite subjects. Our March event focuses on the Women of Champagne. Champagne has a rich heritage and we have many women to thank include Madame Moët, Madame Clicquot, and Madame Pommery. I am also excited to highlight amazing women in various roles in Champagne, including winemaking and business.

Women are doing amazing work by bringing champagne from a beverage of celebration to an everyday enjoyable glass of wine. We will look at champagne with a new lens.

Mark your calendars for our chat on Saturday, March 16 at 11:00am EDT on Twitter.
