“Come my brothers, for I am drinking stars” so proclaimed monk Dom Perignon- the first to have enjoyed champagne. Whether launching a ship, acknowledging the birth of a child, or simply welcoming friends in your home, no other drink typifies the idea of celebration then sparkling wine. This has been the case for centuries, and happily, I join those who choose to ‘pop’ a bottle open and continue to celebrate with a shimmering glass of stars in my hand.
