Named one of the 40 Under 40 by Wine Enthusiast, bubbly Blaine Ashley, nicknamed Champagne Blaine by friends, figured out an ingenious way to turn her serious love affair with Champagne on a beer budget into an actual career. Don’t be too jealous because this year New York Champagne Week is offering many more events to the General Public. (For the past three years, it targeted the food and beverage industry.) The core concept is to showcase Champagne through a variety of creative, kitschy, fun events with the purpose of making Champagne approachable beyond birthdays and celebrations.
