Wölffer Welcomes Champagne Bollinger Into the Sag Harbor Kitchen

If the Champagne Bollinger Pairing Dinner at Wölffer Kitchen Sag Harbor isn’t on your radar, it should be.

On Sunday, December 16, three creative forces — Wölffer Estate winemaker Roman Roth, Champagne Bollinger brand director Rafaella Fontes and chef Michael Ronzino — will whip up a five-course pairing dinner, each accompanied by special vintages of Bollinger and capped off with a taste of the Sagaponack vineyard’s Diosa Ice Wine.

Based in the village of Aÿ — heart of the Champagne region — and family-owned since 1829, the Champagne Bollinger House is “revered around the world for its elegant and complex champagnes produced from their exceptional vineyards, with an emphasis on the Pinot Noir grape, and a uniquely rigorous nurturing of their wines,” according to a press release.

The menu will include Aperitif Bollinger Special Cuvee and First Course Bollinger Rose, followed by Main Course Bollinger La Grand Annee 2007, Cheese Course Bollinger RD 2004 and Dessert Wölffer Diosa Late-Harvest Ice Wine.

The dinner will cost $125 per person, plus tax and gratuity, and reservations are requested. For more information, call (631) 725-0101 or visit

Salty Home: Support Small Business and a Local Growing Family

With a bundle of joy on the way, Salty Home owner Jessica de Kerillis is pointing customers to her website for holiday shopping — available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with free local delivery.

“Thank you for supporting what started as a dream and has evolved into a thriving business,” a press release said. “The past month took our business from storefront to home front. Now we are prepping for the newest member of our family to arrive while still being able to serve you. Thank you again for all the support you have given us over the years.”

Known in Bridgehampton as a go-to for housewares, furniture and well-priced, unique gifts, the family-run business never skimps on holiday merchandise, and this year is no different. A full Christmas inventory is now available, from ornaments and linens to aromatherapy and décor.

“Our design philosophy is: there are no rules,” according to Salty Home’s website. “Run with what you love. If one needs help to figure what that is, or how to put it together, that is what we are here for.

“It is our priority to find the most unique items, at incredible prices, that we feel are very special and that we believe in,” it continues. “It is our goal to create an environment at Salty Home that people can come enjoy, get inspiration, evoke a feeling of bliss.”
