Kicking off the festivities for EXPO Chicago, Ruinart shared Champagne and business wisdom.
THE PARTY In celebration of EXPO Chicago, Ruinart invited local creative and business leaders to the Ruinart House at Loft Lucia for a Champagne tasting, networking and a panel discussion with the central theme of Crafting Excellence. THE PEOPLE The dynamic panel participants included esteemed Chicago designer Sasha Adler, founder of Sasha Adler Interior Design; Michael Rosenblum, real estate broker and author of Happily Ever Always; and Sebastien Vitry, brand director of Moët Hennessy. The spirited discussion was moderated by Gary Metzner of Sotheby’s Midwest. THE PINNACLE As the oldest Champagne house in existence and the leading sponsor of the massive EXPO event, Ruinart had no trouble putting together a special celebration guests would be sure to remember. The brand collaborated with Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek to create special-edition Maison Ruinart boxes, which were on display throughout the space. -Nick Moutvic
