On Monday, December 17, we hosted an education seminar in Chicago for students of DePaul University’s School of Hospitality Leadership, which was named the most recognized hospitality program in the state in 2015. The seminar was led by Alicia Barrett, sommelier, consultant/educator for Binny’s Beverage Depot (Chicago’s largest wine retail store), and Director of Education and Events for the American Wine Society-Chicago Chapter. Alicia discussed the region, the winemaking process, as well as different food pairings that work well with different styles of Champagne.
