Saugatuck Grain & Grape is hosting a Champagne tasting this Saturday, December 22 from 3 to 6 pm. During this event, 10% of proceeds from the event will benefit The Sandy Hook School Support Fund, created by United Way of Western Connecticut.
From Mimi at Saugatuck Grain & Grape: "I've decided to open up some bottles of bubbly; a lot of bottles, actually. Prior to the Sandy Hook tragedy, I was merely going to bill it as a lovely way to spend the day. I think, however, I am going to make one change to this party. I want to celebrate life and I want to do my small part to ease the pain of the families who lost a sister/brother/niece/nephew/grandson/granddaughter/wife."
They will be pouring the following champagnes: Billecart-Salmon, Chartogne-Taillet, Henri Goutorbe, Laurent-Perrier, Krug, Cristal, Pierre Gimonnet, Pierre Peters, Aubry, A. Margaine, and Gaston Chiquet.
