Wine Wednesday with the Champagne Shack!
Wednesday October 26th • 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
It’s a very special Wine Wednesday! Our friends Ysee Gaudel-Eisel and Stephen Eisel are joining us to pour you some mid-week wines with a bit of French flair.
About the Champagne Shack Team
This Franco-American team of wine whisperers and food lovers is working on launching a wonderful project in Hollywood, the Champagne Shack. While they wait on the city to approve their permits, we thought we’d let y’all meet them!
Ysee is French to her core. Her love of food and wine began early learning from her Father, who founded culinary schools worldwide. She cut her professional teeth in some of Miami’s most famous spaces (Les Halles or Le Marais, anyone?) She perfected her skills while organizing food and wine for Formula One Grand Prix worldwide. (It is hard to imagine this delightful fairy of a woman wrangling the enormous staff it took to pull that off, but she has a steel core, I promise you). If you are an old-school Miami wine lover, you might remember the shop she and Stephen owned, Imperial Wine. She also spent years working with Whole foods to create their wine program.
Stephen has worked on all sides of the wine industry, from import and distribution to retail, wine events, and educational tastings. Stephen is also an experienced wine professional. He has worked on all sides of the industry, with retail stints at Whole Foods, Imperial Wine, which he owned with Ysee, and Wine by the Bay, where he ran the shop with the owner. Stephen was also integral in creating and implementing their wine training program. He has also worked in distribution, and He and Ysee also owned Red Vine Wines Imports with their business partner. Stephen also brings the party with his DJ skills!
As you can see, these two are a powerhouse team, and I can’t wait to see their vision for Champagne Shack come to life!
$5 by the glass as usual and of course snacks, good conversation and general merriment!
