Peace, Love, & Laurent Perrier
Old Edwards Inn is known for its love of hosting parties, innovative and collaborative events that focus on and present their favorite finds.
That’s precisely what they’ll do on July 30, at the Peace, Love, and Laurent Perrier Party at The Farm.
The evening, featuring the champagnes of Laurent Perrier, promises to recapture the easy swinging style and laid-back rhythms of the Swinging Sixties. On the agenda, a chance to return to the nostalgia and spirit of a decade that also belonged to the Kennedy mythos, the Beatles, and go-go boots. Included is all the hedonism that fit the era, swanky settings, sharp outfits, sharkskin suits, sensational champagne, stiff drinks and the saloon style songs spawned in Las Vegas by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., and others. (We will forgo the cigarettes with or without the Surgeon General’s warnings).
DJ Yvonne Monet’s playlist for the evening promises to include everyone’s favorites, a reminder that the music from the generation of love still lives on.
In a summation of 60’s nostalgic history, guests will fill their coupes at a champagne fountain while admiring the hand-crafted pink and white ice sculptures, and have their photos snapped alongside Bubbles the Car, a 1963 Citroen.
Vice President of Champagne Laurent Perrier Camille Cox brings all her knowledge, energy and passion to an hors d’oeuvre-matched reception in The Orchard, while pouring champagne from large format bottles.
Although many associate champagne with a celebration or an aperitif before dinner, Executive Chef Chris Huerta of Madison’s likes to think of it as he would any other wine, or in the case of champagne, what dinner is best served with it. And so, the menu served at dinner in The Farm Pavilion emphasizes seasonality, quality of ingredients, and a delicious procession of dishes perfectly chosen to complement the wines. Discussion is a must as Camille guides guests on how to recognize different flavors and styles of champagne. Camaraderie, laughter, and story-telling are sure to follow.
Guests are encouraged to slip into their favorite white vinyl boots, rock ‘n roll get-up, or hippie attire, and relax into an evening of pleasure and immersion delivered straight from the 60’s. Cost is $175 per person (exclusive of tax and gratuity), which includes champagne throughout the evening.
