In less than a month we’ll finally have the most comprehensive, modern text on Champagne – the region, the wines, the people and the history. As you may know, Peter Liem is my business partner in Sherryfest (coming up Oct 27-29 in NYC), and I am fortunate to count him as one of my dearest friends. Naturally, my endorsement of his book, Champagne, comes with a strong bias of love. After traveling with Peter and witnessing first-hand the great undertaking of this book (and recently holding it in my hands!), it’s impossible for me to overstate my joy and excitemnt for its release.

You can currently purchase your advance copy of Champagne on Amazon. The book is gorgeous, and comes with a thrilling set of vintage vineyard maps.

So in anticipation – there will be Champagne! See below for a complete list of what’s available to order. Some inventory is in NYC and some is in DC, but shipping is possible to most states. Some quantities are limited so all order requests are subject to confirmation. Also, some items are en route and will arrive later in the fall.



  • Inventory is limited; all orders are subject to confirmation.
  • Some items are en route and will be available for late fall shipment/delivery.
  • All orders are fulfilled through licensed retail partners in New York and Washington, D.C. Shipping rates and restrictions may apply.
