Glass of Bubbly Interview

Where’s the most memorable place you’ve ever enjoyed a Glass of Bubbly?
Ravello with my husband when we first met.

It used to be Dom Pérignon, but now I have moved on to Prosecco – I have a house in the Umbrian countryside where I dine al fresco and drink LOTS of the stuff.

What does Champagne mean to you?
A: Success
B: Celebration
C: Romance
D: Enjoying great company

Celebration. It embodies the celebration of birthdays, Christmas and child birth!
