Day 8 Gardening, Cheese Making & Tasting Champagne
What could be better, gardening in the morning then learning how to make cheese, and then getting to meet the export director of Bollinger Champagne...one of only three french champagne houses still privately owned. We had a lesson on the century plus technique used by Bollinger and then had a taste test of three of their champagnes. It was wonderful! Here are today's words of wisdom from Phillippe Mengui...he is referring to aging of wine but could be applied to many different things I think!
