It can be difficult to describe the transcendent feeling of a meal that is expertly paired with libations and shared with friends or family. Pairing wine with food is by no means a new concept, but it is an art form that continues to evolve as culinary experts pour their creativity into restaurant concepts and build teams of hospitality professionals. There was a time when the chef had to play all roles…cook, sommelier, waiter, trainer, book keeper, but there is an air of prestige that is recognized in the industry universally now, which has allowed for specialized roles to be broadened and even celebrated. For the guest, this cultivates an environment that can be truly magical, and hopefully leaves them inspired to continue their journey of gastronomic discovery and hospitality in their own home.

At Home with Andrea Mancuso

As the world went into lockdown in spring 2020 following the Coronavirus pandemic, Maison Perrier-Jouët’s Artisans of the Wild opened a virtual portal into their homes to share how they kept creative throughout quarantine with the At Home With series. Forming a dialogue from London to Paris, Milan to Mexico, each Artisan showed how they found inspiration at home to keep up their respective practice – ranging from dance to design – and how their communities came together to support key workers as well as each other.  

Metamorphosis installation

Maison Perrier-Jouët renews the dialogue between nature, champagne and design with Metamorphosis: a collection of six glasses and a champagne bowl by Italian designer Andrea Mancuso, of Analogia Project. It will be on display in a singular setting throughout Design Miami/ 2019. This collaboration is infused with Maison Perrier-Jouët’s vision of reinvented nature. It forms part of an artistic tasting ritual, exploring the metamorphoses of nature and the way the House transforms grapes into champagne using over 200 years of savoir-faire.
