Hamptons-Based Inn Hosting Champagne Weekend

Nicole Barylski

With the holiday season near, but not quite close enough to start decking the halls, it's the perfect time to brush up on your bubbly knowledge. And, luckily enough for us, The Baker House 1650, a boutique award-winning Hamptons inn, is welcoming Champagne Philippe Gonet for a weekend of indulgence that kicks off with a champagne seminar and tasting.

"I was very fortunate to be able to travel to Reims and Epernay, the Champagne area of France, this past June and fell in love with that part of world," Antonella Bertello, Owner The Baker House 1650, shared. "I thought it would be wonderful to bring a little of French champagne magic to The Baker House 1650, and Chantal Gonet from The Champagne House of Philippe Gonet graciously accepted. And since we are both boutique establishments, it was a perfect fit!"

On Saturday, October 21, a seminar "on all things champagne" - which will include a guided tasting of Philippe Gonet selections - will be held at 5 p.m. Afterwards, attendees will be treated to an early evening cocktail party where guests can meet and chat with the winemaker. To reserve a spot, visit www.eventbrite.com.

Obviously it couldn't be a champagne weekend without brunch, so on Sunday, October 22 The Baker House 1650 will host a special champagne brunch with Chantal Gonet, the Champagne Philippe Gonet winemaker. Taking place in the gorgeous Baker House gardens, weather permitting, attendees will nosh on a variety of tempting homemade brunch options as they sip on delicious bubbly. To reserve a spot, visit www.eventbrite.com.

Founded in 1830, Champagne Philippe Gonet is led by the seventh-generation brother and sister team of Pierre and Chantal Gonet and is among the largest family growers in Champagne. The majority of their production is from estate grown fruit.

Admission is $50 per event.

The Baker House 1650 is located at 181 Main Street East Hampton. To reserve a spot, call 631-324-4081. For more information, visit www.bakerhouse1650.com.
