Liz Palmer Champagne Book Release & Signing in Toronto, Thursday December 15, 2016

The Fine Wine Reserve provides discerning collectors with the highest standards of fine wine storage. Our facility is purpose built and specifically engineered to protect your fine wines.

Liz Palmer

One of North America’s leading experts on Champagne, Liz Palmer wrote The Ultimate Guide To Champagne with a strong personal passion for Champagne and the region.

Liz will be featuring a selection of Champagnes from J. de Telmont

~~

Liz Palmer’s The Ultimate Guide To Champagne has garnered praise from numerous influential wine journalists, and other industry peers:

~~

“Liz, What a beautiful book!” Frédéric Mairesse — Managing Director, Champagne Barons de Rothschild

~~

“Liz, What a huge and fantastic work! Your book is a perfect achievement. Very complete, beautifully designed, clear and well written. It will be a “must have” for wine lovers but not only them. Sure it will have the biggest success. My warmest congratulations for this remarkable contribution to Champagne prestige.” Representative of Comité Champagne

~~

“Amongst well-known champagne authors like Michael Edwards and Tom Stevenson we can now add Liz Palmer from Canada. The ‘Ultimate Guide to Champagne’ is so comprehensive that Liz must has lived and worked like a monk the past years when she wrote it. Whatever you are looking for, you will find it here! It is well-written and is perfect for your nightstand! If it’s not on your nightstand, put it somewhere so you have easy access! I really loved it!”
Dr. Charlotte van Zummeren WA – winebusiness.nl,
International Wine Judge – Netherlands

~~

“That’s what I called The Ultimate Guide! This book must inspire both amateurs and professionals. One could start reading any page and end up by the whole book. From history, science facts and health benefits through tourism and collecting to christening boats, corporate functions, weddings… Vinously good buy!” Dr. Martin Kristek – Czech Republic

~~

“This is an invaluable reference for the serious student as well as the everyday wine lover, filled as it is with vital statistics and fun facts. Liz has put an enormous amount of work into this book and has striven to include all sorts of information such as places to stay and eat which makes this a one-stop shop, a must-carry for anyone travelling to the region. There is a wealth of information on the region, and the problems it faces, as well as advice on buying, storing and serving and much, much more besides.

I have to confess that I reviewed the soft-copy of this so I don’t know how much it actually weighs but it must be close to being worth its weight in gold in terms of the information contained therein. Well done, Liz – now take a well-earned rest with a glass of some of the finest bubbles you have in your cellar!”
Dermot Nolan MW (Master of Wine) – Dublin

~~

“What a titanic work you’ve done putting this book together! Everything and more that one needs to know about Champagne!”

“The Ultimate Guide to Champagne is exhilarating like ten million Champagne bubbles in your glass. Unlike many books of its genre, the guide urges for action, be it opening a bottle or planning a journey to the world’s most fabulous wine region. Liz Palmer’s fact-packed pages feature plenty of practical tips, curiosities and even style advice ensuring that the book will be a Champagne lover’s best companion on many different occasions.”
