I have just finished "The Widow Cliquot" about Barbe-Nicole Cliquot, who when she became a widow (veuve) established the vineyard that became Veuve Cliquot, changed the way champagne was made and marketed, and nurtured it into the industrial powerhouse that provides us with the magnificent champagne that I am SO fond of today

A fantastic story of a woman with a business brain and ambition at a time when there were no powerful women outside of the aristocracy. A recommended book that is not only about a fascinating woman, but also about the process of making champage. I think I could do with a glass of it right NOW!

What did you think of this review?

I like your style!:) This sounds like a truly fascinating story and I'm so glad you reviewed this book. I'm definitely going to pick this up - and perhaps read it with a glass of champagne myself:)
