Dalton credits the idea to her friend Laura Maniec, a sommelier at Corkbuzz Wine Studio in New York City, who came up with the idea of late-night Champagne hours. "She rings a bell at 10 p.m., and everyone knows it's time for Champagne," Dalton said.
Dalton said that she got Maniec's blessing to take the Champagne campaign in Baltimore. "She told me, 'I want everyone to do this. I want everyone to find Champagne as accessible as I do.'"
Dalton said that doesn't yet have a bell to ring to signal the start of Champagne hours at Wit & Wisdom.
"Ive been looking for a bell," Dalton said. "We are all on a mission to find the perfect bell."
