Join us in celebrating International Champagne Day with an educational seminar on Champagne and a trivia contest. Our sommelière, Alicia Barrett, will take us through the Champagne region, help you navigate the sub-regions and grape varieties, and make you an expert on the Champagne production process. Test your knowledge at the end of our evening with a trivia event. The winner will receive a beautiful Magnum of Champagne!
We encourage you to purchase a bottle of Champagne and join us! Remember, Champagne is only from Champagne, France!
Alicia Barrett fell in love with wine after a trip to Burgundy, a place she still feels is heaven on earth. She began her wine education at the Wine and Spirit Education Trust’s global headquarters in London where she completed her WSET Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3. Alicia is now completing her WSET Diploma in Chicago, a lengthy and challenging certification held by just over 10,000 individuals worldwide.
Alicia currently serves as the Wine Educator for Binny’s Beverage Depot of Illinois. With 42 retail stores, she is responsible for staff wine education chain-wide. Alicia also teaches for the American Wine School, serves as the Chicago Educator for the U.S. Champagne Bureau, and conducts monthly wine tastings for the Alliance Française. Most recently, she has launched her own virtual tasting and wine education company, Grape to Glass.
