3rd segment of this weeks Show: Pour Authentic Champagne and Porto for All Celebrations - Jessie Niewoldt and Kate Connors
 
Jessie Niewoldt and Kate Connors want us to remember that it's okay to indulge in a delicious Tawny Port to warm the body this winter. Tawny lasts for up to two weeks after opening. Next time you feel like ranting about the snow seeping through your socks... breathe in, breathe out, and drink up. As for what to serve friends during the last few days of football mania, remember that an authentic bottle of Champagne, whether Extra Dry, Brut, or Extra Brut marries phenomenally well with almost anything... but definitely football-food-fare... from salted peanuts and pepperoni pizza to brie en croute.
