A late night beer with Olivier Krug, a private dinner with Peter Liem or a hot air balloon ride with Alexandre Salmon: nothing is off-limits in our spectacular journey to Champagne with Garth Hodgon.
This celebrated wine expert and ex Krug US Brand Ambassador will help us open the doors to the region's most guarded secrets in a week of sparkling adventures. Expect visits to top Champagne houses, blending and disgorgement workshops and finest dining in the region's Michelin-starred restaurants.
As the director of the Legacy Cellar Foundation, Garth is responsible for working with the world’s most passionate wine aficionados to transition their collections into transformative gifts to charities and causes they care most about. A commanding name on the US wine scene, Hodgdon is a certified Advanced Sommelier, who was named one of the "Best New Sommeliers in America" by Wine & Spirits magazine back in 2010 and whose previous experience includes being the US Ambassador for Krug Champagne and sommelier of Thomas Keller’s Michelin-starred Bouchon Bistro in Yountville, California.
