In Honor of The Widow

 

We are celebrating The Widow Clicquot  with the October Club Celebrate release of our 2016 Goat Bubbles Rosé. Join us for our pick-up party this Saturday, September 29, from 4-6pm at the tasting room or receive your bubbles shipment next week. If you are not a member of Club Celebrate (dedicated to Goat Bubbles), there is still time to join here or call 805-736-9032. Members of our Philosophers Club (dedicated to single vineyard Pinot Noirs) will be tasting our new release Pinots so everyone has something to toast!

This is the 10-anniversary of The Widow Clicquot: The Story of a Champagne Empire and the Woman Who Ruled It, a New York Times Bestseller by Dr. Tilar J. Mazzeo. I highly recommend it as a fascinating read about Barbe-Nicole Clicquot Ponsardin, the visionary young widow who built the legendary champagne empire and became a successful businesswoman, long before anyone conceptualized the glass ceiling.  Exactly 200 years ago, Madame Clicquot innovated and completely re-created the rosé champagne of the time.
