Book Signing & Champagne Tasting –
A very dear and long-standing member of the Fine Wine Reserve, Liz Palmer has just released the critically acclaimed “Ultimate Guide to Champagne”. Please drop by for her book signing paired with… you guessed it… champagne courtesy of Tod Warner from Espirit du Vin. Tod will be featuring champagne from J de Telmont, along with other wines from his portfolio.
