First the Chicago river, now White House flutes...

On St. Patrick's Day next Tuesday, Domaine Chandon sparkling Brut wine will be colored green and served at the White House to Irish Taoiseach Brian Cowen in commemoration of St. Patrick’s Day. I'm still waiting for my invitation--President Obama, I'm Irish AND a wine lover. Just drop me an email or give me a call and I'm there.

Those of you lucky enough to be in the Napa area next week can also stop by Chandon for a complimentary splash in honor of the Irish celebration. The return of the green sparkling wine hearkens back to a past tradition at the winery – one which was revived when the White House requested this festive fizz be created just for the holiday.

Otherwise, just grab the food coloring and give it a go yourself.
