When two of your favorite things together it feels so magical. That was the case when I learned that The Assembly, a new female workspace, club and social club was hosting a tasting with Krug Champaign CEO Maggie Henríquez. Had I died and gone to Champagne heaven? See more of this magical afternoon and all the fun we had in the stunning Assembly garden. And if you’re curious what the fabulous Assembly is, read more about this member’s club (which I belong to) here….
Although the dining was set and beautiful it was such a beautiful day out that we ended up sipping on Krug paired with some light bites in the garden. I mean, how can you beat that?
Something I quickly learned at this event is that the Krug was continuously flowing. They really are so hospitable and the wines are so delicious, it’s really hard to say no.
The incredible culinary spread including Ceviche, Caviar, Charcuterie & Cheese and more….

Maggie addressing the group sharing more about her background, her professional experience, her first year at Krug and more. It was beyond inspiring hearing such a passionate, witty, approachable leader speak. A few of her brilliant thoughts she shared with us included
“Surprise people as their EXPECTATIONS ARE LOW”
“When you’re a leader, have a SOCIAL CONSCIENCE!”
“Crisis is a great opportunity because people are READY FOR CHANGE”
“Learn from FAILURE and be HUMBLE”
“What is luxury? Pushing boundaries to something BEYOND”
Thanks to the fabulous team at The Assembly for partnering with Krug Champaign on this over the top luxurious, educational and delicious Champagne Tasting. It was one I will not forget and treasure for years to come!
