This is me … Jenny a true champagne lover sins always, but the real interest for champagne stated when we sat in the park in front of the Eiffeltower and I tryed a bottle of Perrier Jouet blason brut forget the first time . It was a halleluja moment for me and I just had to learn everything I can about it… 🥂🍾

And now 5 years later after 6 trips to the champagne region and endless of champagne tastings  i just realized that the more I know and taste the more I whant to know and taste … 😂🙈

I have 3 true passions in my life;

  • Champagne 
  • Photography 
  • Interior design 

I just started my own company, a website  www.vinglasexperten.se Where I’m a retailer for Lehmann glasses. I started it because of the importance of the right glass to these amazing champagnes. So all the flavors gets a chance open up and show its true colors…✨🥂✨

Which Champagne would You treat yourself?

See answer above …

Which Champagne would You treat a dream guest, and why?

‘My dream guest would be Peter Fransson. A Instafriend with 40 years of experience whitin champagne it would be an honor to lisen and learn a fragment of what he knows about champagne . I think he would appreciate a bottle of Dom Peringon 1976 while listening to Tina Turner “The Best”. I know he likes old champagne and 1976 is an awesome year… This would be my choice for him🍾’
