A Desire To Help Wine Drinkers

Christopher S. Ruhland Author Interview

Press For Champagne: A Guide To Enjoying The World’s Greatest Sparkling Wine gives readers the knowledge they need to select and enjoy champagne. Why was this an important book for you to write?

I think wine drinkers could be drawing so much more joy from Champagne, and I wanted to show them how. I’ve had many friends ask me about Champagne over the years, and I dispense advice as best I can. At some point, I realized that it would be a lot easier if wine drinkers had a written guide to understanding and enjoying Champagne. I thought, “Why not put all of my thoughts, advice, and other things I have to say about Champagne into a book?” The book was born out of a desire to help wine drinkers like my friends.

What is a common misconception you feel people have about Champagne?

Many people think the only time to drink Champagne is when you are celebrating. The fact is that Champagne is a very versatile wine that pairs well with food and can be enjoyed any time wine is served.

What do you hope is one thing readers take away from your book?

A reader who finishes this book will have a greater ability to appreciate, enjoy, and explore Champagne.

What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?

I am in the beginning stages of a book about drinking and serving wines and spirits at home. I wish I could tell you when it will be available, but the Champagne book took me about five years from the conception of it to completion. I hope this one doesn’t take that long!

Champagne is the most magical of wines and the most misunderstood. A glass of Champagne delivers joy, amusement, conviviality, and jubilation, making drinking Champagne one of life’s great pleasures. Champagne is not so much meant for celebrations as it is a gift that generates celebration on demand.
Yet few wine drinkers truly know Champagne well enough to seize the joy they could be drawing from it. Champagne marketing and labels often confuse more than they inform. And understanding the different styles, types, and producers of Champagne – and how they align with your own personal preferences – can seem like a daunting task.
