Where’s the most memorable place you’ve enjoyed a Glass of Bubbly?
It has to be on stage at a Barry Manilow concert in Las Vegas. I’m a huge fan and my husband Simon bought tickets for us to go to see him play at the Hilton there. He did think the tickets were quite expensive, but being the old romantic he is and the fact they were some of the last ones, he went ahead…without reading the small print.
When we got to the concert we were ushered on to the stage where there were 3 tables for 2 at which we were served unlimited Champagne until Barry came on to the stage.
He then realised why the tickets were so expensive – but at least I also got a kiss from the man himself (not my husband), before he started singing! What an amazing night that was.
Which is your favourite Champagne or sparkling wine?
I have a Parisian friend who once introduced me to Billecart-Salmon Brut Rosé – the most fabulous Champagne in the whole world – he used to drink it after a meal…I say drink it anytime.
What does Champagne mean to you?
D: Enjoying great company
All of the above – although there doesn’t have to be a reason to drink it – does there? Cheers.
