My first champagne memory is my 23rd birthday. My mom and dad took me and a few friends to Napa. I remember thinking...oooh we fancy! Our first stop was Chandon. I immediately fell in love with the atmosphere, the vibe and of course it didn’t hurt that the winery was just drop dead gorgeous.
My first Sip was the Étoile Brut Cuvee and I must admit it still has a special place in my heart. For me, champagne is just pure joy, love and connection. It may sound cheesy but it was also the first thing my mom and I had a mutual love for in my adulthood. So in the beginning it was just a way to connect with her, but now, it's my 4th love (The husband, kid and family come first of course).
When I decided to go into business for myself, I couldn’t think of anything I enjoyed more. As I started researching more about champagne, I was pleasantly surprised how much of its history was rooted in strong women. Women who reminded me of my mom. Resilient, Ambitious, Intelligent and Innovative. That's the moment I knew there wasn’t anything else I could do. I found my home.
