The Champagne Bureau’s Annual London Tasting was held this year in One Great George Street, ’round the corner from Downing Street, the Palace of Westminster and along the park from Buckingham Palace. As ever, the Peretti team set up a splendid bash. The great, the good, the adequate and the befuddled congregated like wildebeest to watering hole.; they all wanted to find out what’s gnu in Champagne. (sorry)
I had the pleasure of talking with Françoise Peretti the owner of Peretti Communications and director of the Champagne Bureau UK, Sara Hicks of Pommery Monopol, John Franklin of Mentzendorff and Tom Ellis of First Class Products. Also huge thanks to Oz Clarke for photo-bombing our first take of the interview.
