Photo of the Week – December 6, 2013

With the holiday season upon us, what could be better than a photo taken in the wine cellars of Moët et Chandon. The traditional method used to produce champagne, known as méthode champenoise, can take 1.5 – 3 years. Moët & Chandon was founded in 1743, and quickly became a favorite of nobles and aristocrats. Today, the French winery has over 2,500 acres of vineyards, and produces 26,000,000 bottles of champagne yearly. It is possible to tour les caves, as this photographer did. For more information, see their site.
