Book of the Week: The Widow Clicquot

I am delighted to announce our book of the week --The Widow Clicquot: The Story of a Champagne Empire and the Woman Who Ruled It
by Tilar Mazzio. It's a fascinating read that situates the history of champagne-making in the context of the Napoleonic Wars. How did a newly widowed woman bring champagne to the courts of France, Britain, and Russia during a time of political and economic upheaval?

It's a fabulous book; I had a chance to read it while it was still in galleys. And I'm not surprised that Amazon has included it among its best books for October.

We'll have a guest post from Tilar on Thursday. In the meantime, be sure to sign up for this week's drawing for a chance at an autographed copy of The Widow Clicquot.
