Leading into the holiday season, the Chanler at Cliff Walk in Newport is hosting its final tasting series event Dec. 2 from 1-3 p.m., with a champagne and sparkling wine tasting. The ticketed event, $85 per person, plus tax and tip, takes place at the hotel's Spiced Pear restaurant, with drinks from the Pernod Ricard collection, including JH Mumm, Perrier-Jouet, Mumm Napa and more. Chef Thomas Duffy and his Spiced Pear culinary team will create a specialty menu to pair with each tasting.
Arian Bouron, champagne ambassador for Pernod Ricard USA, will be on hand to present the wines and discuss the significance of each. Bouron has extensive experience in the industry, having worked for two years in China developing the luxury portfolio for Pernod Ricard. She has spent years organizing private tastings for connoisseurs, working with five-star hotels and restaurants around the world, and developing a brand vision for Pernod Ricardís flagship outlets.
