Labels: sabering the champagne
Sunday, February 08, 2009
Don Baumhefner, master winemaker, passed on to me the art of sabering one's champagne to remove the cork. It is so much more fun that untwisting the wire cage. Sabering is a time honored art, one not to be missed, nor taken lightly, and especially not done indoors unless a window is nearby. Don is in the beret; it is his incredible '99 cuvee, 100% petit meunier, being distributed after the successful savage slice. I am doing the saber rattling, and sober prattling, so as to dedicate the new studio. Video shot by Ray and Donny Salmon, my first post high school art teachers ('71), who was there with tiny Nikon camera in hand. Thank you Ray and Donny. Thank you to everyone there, it was a great event.
