Class Description:
The Widow Clicquot: The Story of a Champagne Empire and the Woman Who Ruled It

It’s a good time of the year to pop open a book on Champagne, so this evening we take a vicarious voyage to early 19th-century France to meet Barbe-Nicole Clicquot Ponsardin, the unlikely entrepreneur behind this renown libation.

According to The New York Times book review, The Widow Clicquot is as much about Champagne as it is about the woman who helped elevate it to celebrity status.

The book reveals that the wine’s history is as filled with faux folklore as a glass of Champagne is filled with tiny bubbles.
