Why do you love Champagne?

"I love that there's a Champagne for every mood, every season."

What is your favorite Champagne pairing?

"Champagne with raw oysters. Two ingredients + a shucker = a meal."

How are you celebrating La Fête du Champagne Week?

"We will be holding a tasting featuring the Champagnes of two Grandes Marques: Billecart-Salmon and Ruinart. This tasting will take place in our store on Saturday, October 18th from 3 to 6 PM. Naturally, since the event is being held at Astor Center, we will work to lure customers to the store to taste these other Champagne offerings. It will be a special, complementary event for attendees of La Fête as well as for anybody who is in the store, Astor Wines & Spirits. This tasting will be a free event for all."
