    For first glass, even with just one pour I feel like you should pour a bit less. People can get embarrassed if you over pour.

    Ah so that was exactly the right way on how to open the champagne bottle I didn't know about that,actually we already had try to bought that and it"s funny to say that the one who open it has no idea on how to open it right that's why the cork pop up high above up to the ceiling that was a party celebration .Thanks for sharing about it .

    I once attended a wedding where bottles of wine were placed unopened on the table. You had to call the waiter to open them. My husband doesn't drink alcohol so it never crossed his mind that I would like a glass of wine. I left early for this event, fed up with water and coke :)))

    what is your five top champagne ? Is there some that is more tacky to serve and should be avoid? Or is all champagne ok. I have noticed that in Sweden many thinks that Veuve Qliquot is little bit tacky. Personally I don't like this is so much. I have other brands that i prefer. But its very usual to have this on parties when they do serve champagne. Another thing i don't like it that many persons in Sweden say they serve Champagne when they actually only serve wine that is sparkly. It seems they don't know the difference.

    Thete's actually a reason why a wine glass should be held only by the stem. That's why I'm totally bewilderd by the inapproptiate "stemless wine glasses" that they started marketing a few years ago. Worse, many people gravitated toward them (?).

    In the wine industry, we say that opening a bottle of champagne should sound like a bishop’s / nun’s / priest’s fart (aka you shouldn’t hear it); you have just demonstrated style, class grace, and incredible skill. You do make some good points, but one that I’d say for the viewers is don’t talk about wines and champagnes as if you are an enthusiast if you’re really not... because it’s embarrassing for everyone when you make the mistakes and people pick up on it, and all of your work will be for nothing. Also, don’t swill it around your mouth like Listerine, but one subtle movement around your mouth to identify the notes can really help you appreciate the drink.

    In France, for a big festive affair, the pop of the champagne is welcome with laughter and joyful cheers. Even for an intimate soiree, a fun pop is welcome. It puts a smile on everyone's faces. Champagne without pop is boring. Reserve that for a regular bubly "mousseux.'.

The way she showed how to hold the bottle and the champagne flute really do make a difference and look so much more elegant!

    You're such a level-headed Lady. You're having come from a less affluent background have served you well. Being 70 and having watched lots of people in my life; noting those that come from affluent out of the womb are not as fortunate as we would think. Those from lesser affluent backgrounds are much more aware of the realities of life. I do believe it brings about a humility. I so enjoy seeing such an outstanding young woman help guide other women in the same direction.

    In France for grand occasions like weddings in bourgeois families they might open the bottle with a sword, it's called "sabrer". Usually if the family has a military background and the sword was a great grandfather's. Also, when saying cheers they have rules : when you clink your glass with someone you have to look them in the eyes and no crossing with anyone else.

    Just a note to keep in mind: Always take care that when you pick up the bottle, the LABEL is fully visible, showing (and not covering) the information of the drink, which surely has been created by a specialist designer in great detail. It's something I learned in a luxurious London conference center.
