Sparkling Twilight Tasting - NW Women's Show

I'm in Seattle at the NW Women's show which is really good for you. I'm offering introductory pricing only at the show just for you.

We're popping the cork this weekend and tasting our Sparkling Twilight.... a champagne style Syrah.

I love sparkling wine for a lot of reasons but I recently found two new ones. I've been doing a bit of reading on champagne lately thanks to a Christmas present from Lisa... the book, 'The Widow Clicquot'. Barbie-Nicole Clicquot was described as a tenacious entrepreneur who not only saved and grew the Clicquot Champagne Empire but also opened new horizons for women in business and forced those around her to reconsider the gender stereotypes of her day... All this starting at the age of 27 in the early 1800's. This made me think of our "Rosie".

There was another quote in the book I also liked... In the first decades of the 18h century, not long after champagne was discovered, the powerful Madame de Pompadour put it best: Champagne is the only wine that leaves a woman more beautiful after drinking it!

Here's to bubbly, Cheers, Kathy
