Champagne expert Cynthia Coutu, who specializes in women in champagne, joins Liz in this episode to offer an abbreviated master class in all things Champagne. She offers pro tips for buying and drinking bubbly, explains the early history of women in champagne and talks about how women are still shaking up this male-dominated industry today. Cheers!
