wander with us
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!
Meet Lex & Zach
Inspired by their love of travel, Alexis Corry, owner of Lex & Lynne boutiques, and her hubby Zachary Kappel welcome you to explore their adventures and findings from around the globe.
Alexis and Zach first crossed paths as teenagers in Vero beach Florida, forming a young friendship that would one day become a life partnership. Years later following Alexis’s move from New York City, she and Zach reconnected in Pittsburgh. The two found in each other, something more than love of travel, but the idea that a new experience is sweeter shared with another then in solitude. So, one beautiful ceremony later in a 12th century village tucked away in the hills of Tuscany, Italy, a new adventure began.
While you're here, get ideas and shop their curated collection of travel and lifestyle essentials. Their high end travel product is everything cool and convenient. A collection inspired by Alexis and Zach’s downtown Pittsburgh origins, Florida beach-life, New York City hustle, and rustic Vermont roots.
Travel tips, references, itineraries, and updated guides; secrets and surprises, join them on their journey as they strive to explore and roam this beautiful world.
Bidding Adieu to 2017
