Bubbly Badasses: Women in the History of Champagne
July 5 @ 9:00 pm - July 26 @ 9:00 pm
Pop open a bottle of #champagne made by a woman, sit back, relax, and join me on Sunday evenings in July to listen to some inspiring stories about some badass women in the history of champagne. Here are a few of the women you will learn about:
– Mesdames de Parabère and de Pompadour, Catherine the Great, and many cheeky courtisanes during the 18th century who celebrated life and love with effervescence!
– Mesdames Cliquot, Pommery, Perrier, and other widows during the 19th century who initiated technical innovations while navigating the Napoleonic and Franco-Prussian Wars.
– Mesdames Krug, Olry-Roederer, Bollinger and de Nonancourt who managed their Houses while bombs literally fell on their heads or Nazis pillaged their cellars during WWI and WWII.
– The fabulous female growers and owners behind La Transmission and Fa’bulleuses who have joined forces to transmit knowledge and support each other.
