Celebrate in San FRANCEisco

Enjoy a festive week filled with champagne

Madame Clicquot was one of the first female entrepreneurs in the wine industry. She took her husband’s struggling champagne business and transformed it into an international powerhouse. She was only 27 and the year was 1805. Fast forward to today and Veuve Clicquot is coming to San Francsico to celebrate Veuve Clicquot Yelloweek, a week-long series of unique experiences embodying the Veuve Clicquot “Art de vivre” May 11 through Friday, May 17.

If you are lucky enough to be in San Francisco this week, you are in for a treat. From brunches to rooftops, caviar to claws – Yelloweek celebrates the vibrant culture of the City by the Bay with a Champagne twist.
