Sunday is my favorite day to drink champagne. I love to go to brunch, stay until it’s time for dinner & sipping on champagne the whole day.
What do you love about champagne?
I love the taste of champagne and the feeling of being tipsy , but in a ladylike way.
Why do you think champagne has stayed so popular and is still a luxury icon?
I think that champagne has stayed popular for so long & is still a luxury icon because of its history . It was designed for the Royal families therefore designed for the elites, It is always served at special occasions and will always be considered as a statement of a level of class, depending on what kind of Champagne your serving, of course.
