Three Reasons (but there are at least 17) to join us on Monday night:
-if you know just a smidgen about the wine and its region, 
there is no better guide / teacher than Peter to take you on a journey
to fully illuminate the glory of the place
-if you know just enough to make you dangerous with a Champagne list, 
there is no better guide / teacher than Peter to make you
the envy of all your aspiring bubbles savvy friends
-if you know a lot about Champagne and drink it for breakfast every day, 
there is no better guide / teacher than Peter
as he lives amongst the vines in the village of Epernay
(truly, he actually does drink Champagne for breakfast, along with his baguette & beurre!)
 and can provide the highest of the lowdown about every single thing that is happening in this traditional wine community that is presently undergoing a massive wine revolution, on all fronts
