Our libation-of-choice has been making headlines recently! First off, protestors trying to prevent the building of a third runway at London's Heathrow Airport took a very civilized approach to their act of civil disobediance. In an alleged allusion to the peaceful Suffragette movement of decades past, the protestors wore Edwardian-era dress, and dined on cake and champagne. Puts a whole new spin on the phrase "let them eat cake!"
All of the world's eyes are of course on Barack Obama, soon to be sworn in as the United States' 44th president. And on the menu for his Inaugural Luncheon? California sparkling wines! While Champagne of course is the go-to beverage for celebrations, we applaud the choice of a U.S.-made wine for this important occasion. The full menu of the luncheon can be found here.
