A Celebration of Champagne, with The House of Taittinger


Once again, Angelena’s is pleased to offer a special food and wine event celebrating Taittinger Champagne. The dinner will be held in the main dining room on Thursday, April 21 at 6:00 p.m.


Champagne- the drink of kings! The most elegant and iconic sparkler in the world represents celebration, luxury and fun. Although the Angelenas wine list is all-Italian, there has always been room for a small, select group of premiere—and well-priced—champagnes. Taittinger is at at the top of Brooke’s list.


Taittinger is one of the few remaining family-owned Champagne houses that still exist. Based out of Reims, France, the champagne house is known for producing exceptionally elegant sparklers due to the high percentage of Chardonnay in the blend.


Chef James Briscione and Wine Director Brooke Parkhurst will work closely with Mark Spaulding, lead luxury wine specialist of Republic National Distributing Company, and Taittinger Champagne representative, to lead guests through a luxury champagne dinner like no other. Fresh Gulf seafood, light Italian cheeses and more will round out this memorable event.
