On Thursday I was fortunate enough to attend a Taittinger Champagne luncheon at Sixteen restaurant in the Trump International Hotel & Tower. (FYI: While not necessarily monetary, unpaid internships do have their perks!) The views from the restaurant are absolutely stunning. The 30-foot floor-to-ceiling windows leave nothing to be desired when gazing out over Lake Michigan, the Chicago River and the Wrigley Clock Tower. It couldn’t have gotten much better than that, but it actually did. Learning first-hand about one of the oldest and most prestigious Champagne houses in France from export director Ambroise Bobtcheff, while sipping the goods, was a real treat.
