In our June edition, we offered TWO BOOKS TO GIVE AWAY!

We invited you to share, in 50 words or less, an unknown name created by you for a sparkling wine and why.

Congratulations to our two winners – Pamela Azar and Bettina Wishart – who will receive the book Great, Grand & Famous Champagnes by Arbon Publishing, valued at $79.99.

France is ancient yet so vibrant, inspiring my name: “Moulin Verve”. “Moulin” means a glacier shaft formed by surface water bubbling through a crack and “Verve” means spirit, zest, enthusiasm. Sparkling wine bubbles with spirit and enthusiasm from the moment the cork is popped! – Pamela Azar, Maroubra, NSW

Whenever my friend and I pop a bottle of Champagne we always toast Josephine Bonaparte and exclaim, “Give them Champagne!” We named our Sparkling wine “Joie de Vivre” in her honour. A decadent bubbly champagne evoking Josephine’s carefree enjoyment of life! – Bettina Wishart, Barwon Heads, VIC


Nothing evokes the magic of France quite like champagne. Great, Grand & Famous Champagnes is a beautifully presented hardback filled to the brim with full-colour photographs and vintage artwork. This fascinating book is a celebration of the rich history of France’s most beguiling export and a practical guide to the world’s finest sparkling wines. Winner of the Gourmand Book Award (Australia) for French Wine, the magic will linger long after the last sip.
