Veuve Clicquot's Cellar


Posted: September 2, 2007

Sandy Kingsley, like many Delicious Destinations readers, loves the good life and wanted to share an experience and a web site with you that you are bound to appreciate and enjoy. Sandy and her husband recently went to France, and because they are both wine and champagne lovers, they went to Burgundy, Champagne….you get the idea.

There are many wineries to visit in France and each one takes a different approach to providing an experience the visitor will cherish among their holiday memories. The people at Veuve Clicquot’s cellar not only served champagne (as you would expect of a good host), they actually taught Sandy and her husband a few tips on how to present and enjoy their beverages they way they were meant to be enjoyed.

Wine

Their web site is a work of art including the history of champagne making going back to the Roman times, through the crowning of French Kings at Reims, to modern production and distribution processes. Their Essentials categories also help readers understand what is really champagne through a standard set I 1935! No fooling around here. Sandy asked that we check out their link to visits where we can set the stage for what is included in their tours. The history appeals to me the most …"ancient Roman gallo chalk cellars in Reims.” Thanks Sandy! A visit to Venue Clicquot is on the must list.

My company gives our bottles of Veuve to reward high performance. Maybe the ultimate prize should be a trip to the cellars!
