Champagne shortage in the Hamptons is forcing wealthy customers to charter cases on private planes
A Hamptons Champagne shortage has lead to wealthy residents and visitors going to extreme lengths to get their kicks from the fizz – with one wealthy individual chartering 15 cases in via private jet.
According to a report in the New York Post, wealthy patrons and residents in the Hamptons are struggling to get their hands on that most prized commodity, practically synonymous with the exuberance and luxury of the area.
However, if the rich and famous of the Hamptons can find it within themselves to drink something other than Champagne, we think they will be most pleasantly surprised by the consistently excellent Proseccos being produced in 2021.
Take, for example, the Bisol Prosecco Cartizze Valdobbiadene Superiore, NV which one a Master medal at db’s Prosecco Masters this year. Bisol1542’s Cartizze was the highest scoring sample in this year’s Prosecco Masters, and 2020’s too, wowing for its combination of peaches and cream, candied orange, honeydew melon, and hint of lime zest. It’s full, sweet, layered, and wonderfully refreshing too. You can read more here.
