We're so excited to introduce you to our newest series, The Somm Set.

Each month we'll be sitting down with a guest sommelier and uncovering their guilty pleasures, cellar staples, and everything in between! Follow as they hand-select their favorites from our warehouse, giving you the inside scoop on cellar must-haves!

We're kicking off this series with Master Sommelier Alexander LaPratt. We took the time to ask him everything from his aha-moment sip of wine to his current endeavors as a restaurant owner. Read the full interview on our blog!


Alexander LaPratt On Champagne:

Champagne- from linear lasers to prestige powerhouses, this region offers it all.

I was asked just yesterday what my favorite Champagne was, and I couldn’t reply with just one as it would have been a grave injustice. It would be like me asking you, “what is your favorite song?” if you are a music lover or “what is your favorite poem?” if you were a romantic; there are just too many to adore!

Never fear though, as Champagne is poetic, romantic, musical, adorable…. And always appropriate! This small region just 90km Northeast of Paris makes the most elegant of bubbly and is top in class for food: from lobster bisque to roasted quail or the local super cheese Brie- you can’t go wrong with a glass of Champagne.

Beyond the wines, the region is rich in both history and humanity, and now, more than ever, I believe you deserve this effervescent elixir.

Let’s raise a toast to those we love, to that which we treasure, to beauty, and to treat ourselves to a delicious moment in time, trapped in a bottle, that has been waiting all these years just for you!  Read more on Alexander's recommendations here.

But wait, there's more!
