Glass of Bubbly Interview

Where’s the most memorable place you’ve ever enjoyed a Glass of Bubbly?
There are lots of very unique places and people I associate with Champagne….
The most recent one was when I purchased my 100 foot WW2 motoryacht, while watching the sun go down….. It was magnificent and my mind ran wild envisioning the helipad I would construct, along with the unique design concept I had in mind….

Which is your favourite Champagne/Sparkling wine?
I change my Champagne to suit my mood. For a big event, perhaps I’ll saber a bottle of Cristal. With friends, I usually open a bottle of Tendil et Lombardi Hyménée, and you can’t go wrong with Billecart Salmon Rosé for any occasion. I keep a magnum in the fridge at all times… Just in case.

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

Of course, all of the above
It’s the fastest route to a magic carpet ride…. I’m not much of a drinker, so a few sips and I’m on my way….
