FEATURED STORY

Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin

DISCOVER LA GRANDE DAME DE LA CHAMPAGNE'S SUMMER HOME IN VERZY, FRANCE

by Zachary Kappel and Alexis Corry
August 25, 2017

Following our tour of Veuve Clicquot we’re met with the marketing director of V.C.P., a black Mercedes, and two glasses of champagne in tow, and we’re ready for our next adventure: a private tour of the summer-home and mansion of La Grande Dame de la Champagne, Madame Clicquot. Located just north of Reims in Verzy, the cuvee region of grape growing! The rustic French charm of this hidden gem is magnificent, between the architecture, style, and it’s grand entrance.

Inside the house is the original wine press of the Madame, dating back to the turn of the 19th century. There needs to be a drumroll as you walk through the house and on to the back deck because, wow, the view is absolutely jaw dropping!

A Look at My Beach Getaway

A Look at My Beach Getaway

First things first, I am going to apologize that our Made in America blog series has been little than that - I've found that I'm writing more and more about my personal findings and self-discoveries than I am small businesses and national gems; so this will (maybe?) be the last of one of my personal-posts, maybe.

Bidding Adieu to 2017

Bidding Adieu to 2017

2017 was a big year for us - we planned our wedding and got married in Tuscany surrounded by fifty of our closest family & friends; we launched our travel blog; we moved our menswear boutique and launched the new lifestyle brand Mick + Kip, as well as Lex & Lynne Bridal; we traveled around the world and explored South Africa for two weeks, quite an adventure for us; and we juggled the ins and outs of every day life - and since May, married life!

Lex's Packing List

Formentera

Hi there! Here we have my packing list for Formentera! Inspired by the small island's crystal clear waters, breathtaking blue skies, and mountainside, my packing list is full of brights and neutrals.

Layers, gemstone wrap bracelets that can be worn as necklaces, and leather sandals are always my staples; and I never travel without my Paavani spritzers. I love our straw bags, this round one is a particular favorite! And our unique kilim flats are always a must-pack. Go in luxury with my favorites.
