Our Master Sommelier, Catherine Fallis, invites you to share in the celebration of life through her unique expression of joy - sabering a bottle of champagne. In times of triumph, Napoleon's gallant soldiers opened champagne with a strong blow from their swords.
Today, Catherine continues this dramatic tradition, delighting guests with her thrilling, festive, and safe technique. A hush falls over the crowd as she dons her gloves and draws her saber. She inhales deeply, preparing for the task before her. She lifts the bottle high, and, with a few strokes, sends the cork soaring into the air. Glasses are filled, and your joyous occasion is off to a great start.
