Champagne - My journey / 06.01.2023

As I bid farewell to 2022, I take account of the highs and lows of what has been a breakthrough year. First, I recognize while it has been one of my best years, there are others less fortunate who experienced difficulty, challenges beyond their control, loss of loved ones; my deepest 🕊️condolences go out to Champagne family De Souza who lost their father and best friend , our champion and most traditionalist Champagne winemaker a trail blazer in organic farming just passed yesterday , we are once again...

Champagne - My journey / 02.01.2022

The world’s peoples are displaced, confused, scrambling, opinionated, split and afraid. We are more conscious of the vulnerability of our lives and our planet than usual. That is the legacy of 2021. I am amongst the ranks of the confused, concerned and sometimes fearful, but I have been fortunate enough to be able to live and work, much the same as I did before the pandemic. My journey and my plans may have been disrupted and delayed, but I have not lost sight on the pathway ahead, and what...

Get on your bike with Team RYNKEBY Full disclosure--I am not a cyclist. Living in Denmark for many years, of course I admired many of the inhabitants riding bikes for transportation and recreation around the city. It was a big surprise when my friend Dr Lars Meinert Jensen asked me to join a fundraising cycling trip with him to raise money for children with cancer from Copenhagen to Paris.You heard right--CPH to Paris for a total of 1200 kilometers over two weeks. (a total of 2000+ kilometers including training).  I politely declined;...

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...
