This was definitely my 2012 Wine Quote of the Year, made even more sparkling for concerning Champagne. I wish I could take credit for saying it, but this quote comes from David Speer, owner of the Champagne bar Ambonnay in Portland, OR. I asked him, “What if I don’t have a Champange budget?” His response:
“If you don’t have a Champagne budget, figure out a way to cut your expenses. Champagne is way better than cable.“
