“This store has a great selection of beers.  The liquor and wine selection is great too.  You can pretty much find whatever your looking for and maybe something new if your feeling adventurous.”                  – Patrick from Chicago

“This place has everything I like, suitable for many price ranges! They get in beers that are hard to find. I was really impressed when I wanted PumKing beer, and they offered to call me when it actually came in, and reserve me some bottles until I was able to stop by— and they actually followed through on that!”                                    – Susanne from LaGrange

Many people have influenced the rise and fall of the champagne industry, but no other industry has been as strongly influenced by female entrepreneurs. Wine making was their passion. They knew they had to be relentless and, often times, involved in everything to do with producing the glorious bubbly nectar. The three most influential women include, Veuve-Clicquot Ponsardin, Louis Pommery, and Lily Bollinger. The French word “Veuve” means widow and rhymes with love. At the young age of 27 Veuve-Clicquot Ponsardin became a widow, and she was challenged with the following decision: become the head of an unknown champagne house, or retire to the countryside with her young daughter. Mme. Ponsardin chose the first option and, as a result, became one of the most influential and innovative women of the century. Without her discovery of remuage – an efficient system for clearing champagne of the yeasty debris trapped in the bottle after secondary fermentation-champagne would never have become the world’s most famous wine.  She was known as the uncrowned queen of Reims France, which is one of the premier places that the grapes of champagne are grown. Epernay is the other main region. Champagne is primarily made with two grapes: Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. However, some regions use a third grape: Pinot Meniuer.

We save Champagne for only special occasions but what is life if not special. Champagne should be drunk at least once a week to celebrate life, not just for special milestones in peoples’ lives. Many affordable sparkling wines and champagnes can turn a day-to-day moment into an extraordinary one! Maybe the French ladies understood this more than anyone. They followed their passion and produced a magnificent product!

Some of these fine champagnes are available this holiday season! Try something new, pop a bottle and keep one in your refrigerator, chilled waiting for the celebration to begin!

My only regret is that I did not drink more Champagne.  -Lord Maynard Keynes, on his deathbed

When wine is involved, nothing is difficult. Cheers!
