For many of us, Champagne sustains a certain mystique. It has its own provenance in France, requires a specific vessel from which one must sip, and maintains a special place in our personal annals of drink.
But what if Champagne were treated more like other wines? What if we considered it not just for a toast but as a perfect accompaniment to an entire meal?
That, in fact, is the theme of the Laurent-Perrier Champagne Dinner at The Farm at Old Edwards.
On Thursday, July 29, Champagne Laurent-Perrier’s Executive Vice President of Sales, Camille Cox, returns to the mountains for a summertime soiree, entitled Midsummer’s Night Dream.
Founded in 1812, Laurent-Perrier is a family and female-owned winery with a long tradition of innovation and a style that boasts freshness, elegance, and purity. Over the years, it has become one of the most successful houses in the Champagne industry, with a long and star-studded history of Champagne production. The star of the houses’ portfolio is the distinctively packaged Cuvee Rose Brut – the largest selling Rose Champagne in the world.
Lucky guests at the pink and white-themed evening will enjoy an array of the winery’s exquisite Champagnes, poured from special large format bottles.
To complement and illustrate the versatility of the wines, Executive Chef Chris Huerta has crafted an indulgent, five-course menu. Sumptuous dishes will include an array of local ingredients and peak summer produce sourced from the Garden at Old Edwards.
Lively discussion with the dazzling and delightful Camille is sure to follow as she helps guests understand the different flavors and styles of champagnes.
Festivities begin at 6:30 P.M. with hors d’oeuvres and lawn games in The Orchard before moving into The Pavilion for a seated dinner.
Giveaways and treats, including bottles of Champagne, will surprise guests throughout the evening. And live music and dancing will round out the night. Guests are encouraged to don their finest pink and white attire!
Camille will also be on hand during the weekend hosting a series of events for Old Edwards guests: To include a social hour and tasting on Friday and Saturday nights and a special daytime event on Saturday.
