Arty-Fact: It appears as if we’ve come across this rouged monarch draped in his royal robes (CREMANT DU ROI) during a transcendent moment, carried away on the exquisite proboscis-tickling bubbles or VEUVE AMIOT sparkling wine. A convincing design of infinite charm that effortlessly persuades without sacrificing one jot of intimate amusement.
In 1884, Elisa Amiot suddenly found herself a widow (veuve) with four children to raise. As she lived in the Saumur region, an area whose sparkling wines had become all the rage, she went into the distilling business. She proved to have a flair for so effectively promoting both herself and her bubbly that her firm prospered right from the start.
