Champagne - My journey / 26.01.2021

Every morning, I enjoy a reviving long black espresso coffee, in MY mug. This is the mug that always makes coffee taste better, whoever is doing the ‘making.’ I also have a favourite cup for tea, and the water glass beside my bed is washed and replaced every day. For champagne I have a Champagne YSC glass, read on to find out why. This is in a house where, with a husband and five daughters (and occasional our grandchild), we have dozens of mugs, cups and other drinkware. It...

In our household, Christmas has been a time of joy, love, sharing and deliciousness. It is a time of year that brings out the best in us – as we enjoy the experience of giving gifts. We have enjoyed delicious traditional foods, and undoubtedly some very special and distinctive champagnes and wines. OK, so we may have over-indulged a little, but wasn’t it worth it? Yes, of course – every yummy mouthful shared with family or friends, was a gift!  So New Year is upon us now, and for many people this is a time...

HAPPY VALENTINES Considering the founder of this festive romantic love day was executed (poor Saint Valentines) it’s amazing how many celebrate a day they have no clue about. Happy Valentines has been around since I was born but I remember when I first visited Denmark during the early 90s they never heard of Valentine’s Day. There was no merchandise in the stores, home, or on the street. So how did all the young lovers express love? Today we all have a special earmarked for sharing love and many can’t wait...

Books and Bottles on a Thursday Night I attended a book signing at Løgismose rooftop store in Illums in Copenhagen last Thursday night 23rd November. Not just any book signing; however, it was the book launch of Søren Frank's book CHAMPAGNE. Of course, this is a title I can get excited about, for me it is the greatest word, pronounced the same in any language, always conjuring the idea of fun and celebration. If you are not familiar with Løgismose, it is Denmark's only high product profile delicatessen store, which is known for...

A Year in Champagne now includes Wines and Spirits My champagne journey started a year ago when I bought an air ticket to Reims. I had no idea how this adventure would turn out or what it would lead to as I am always so busy as a wife and mother,which is a life long project. As the mother of five grownup girls and a busy husband who rely on me as their support system, it is tricky to carve out time to pursue my passion. I maximize both day and...

Champagne - My journey / 04.04.2016

It is Monday April 4th at 4:30am. I am woken from a deep sleep by the hotel reception. While groggy at first, I quickly pop out of bed. It is a special day as I am scheduled to depart Copenhagen for Reims, heart of Champagne land. This is the second trip of four to track the life of champagne. Though it is a touch early in the season, a beautiful "invitation of friendship" from a friend whom I share a champagne passion, was something I could not resist....
