Women In Wine: The Grand Dames Of Champagne

The wine and spirits business is full of such enterprising, dynamic and fierce females. Interestingly, some of the wine world’s grandest world-changing women were widows, thrust into their roles by fate, and they all hail from Champagne: Lily Bollinger, Marie-Louise Lanson de Nonancourt and Madame Clicquot.

Portrait de Madame Clicquot par Léon Cogniet (1794-1880). Huile sur toile (129,5 cm X99,3 cm), peinte entre 1851 et 1861. Ce tableau a été commandé par Madame Clicquot à l'artiste. Il s'en dégage une autorité évidente, la couleur cramoisie du fauteuil ajoute à la force de l'ensemble. L'original appartient à la Maison Veuve Clicquot. Libre de droits hors publicité avec achat d'espace. Mention obligatoire : « Veuve Clicquot ». A portrait of Madame Clicquot by Léon Cogniet (1794-1880). Oil on convas (129.5 cm x 99.3cm), painted between 1851 and 1861. This work was commissioned by Madame Clicquot. She is portrayed with a definite air of authority, underlined by the crimson colour of the chair in which she is seated. The painting belongs to Veuve Clicquot.

Join Betsy Barry of Franklin Yoga & Wellness and Mark Lenzi of Franklin Liquors for a sensory exploration of wine through the energy systems of the body.

This unique workshop combines a 6o-minute yoga class with a carefully sequenced wine pairing designed to open and balance the major energy centers, known as “chakras.” With a heightened sense of awareness, we will explore each chakra through physical observation of each shared wine, discovering taste, flavor and feel in a new way.

No prior knowledge of yoga or wine is required. Plan to bring an open mind and leave feeling balanced and satisfied with a new appreciation of both wine and self.
