Sunday, October 22nd beginning at 11 a.m., The Baker House 1650 will host a special champagne brunch with Chantal Gonet. This will be a unique opportunity to enjoy the famous Baker House brunch without being a guest at the inn. Sip bubbly and enjoy a full menu from the Baker House kitchen hosted in the gardens.

Founded in 1830, today the Gonet estate is run by the seventh-generation brother and sister team of Pierre and Chantal Gonet. They have continued to elevate the house as a reference for Chardonnay from Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. The house has built its reputation on Blanc de Blancs for the past 100 years. While technically a negociant, the Gonet family is among the largest family growers in Champagne and the majority of their production is from estate grown fruit. Pierre and Chantal are committed to espousing the terrior of Le Mesnil through their distinct Blanc de Blancs cuvees.
