"Why do I drink Champagne for breakfast? Doesn't everyone?” — Noël Coward

Be among the first to celebrate the arrival of the Vintage 2010, with a Champagne Breakfast and pairing of industry icons, Dom Ruinart and Tahiirah Habibi.

Tahiirah Habibi is an entrepreneur and the founder and CEO of The Hue Society. Tahiirah has long advocated for more Black, brown, and Indigenous representation in the wine industry. She is a globally recognized, award-winning sommelier by trade and a creative entrepreneur by heart. Tahiirah honed her expertise at prestigious restaurants, most notably including J&G Grill in the St. Regis Bal Harbour and the legendary Michael's Genuine. However, it was the lack of diversity in the industry that sparked her to reimagine the wine world by creating an organization where our people would be respected and valued for their contributions. Tahiirah was selected in the Wine Enthusiast’s prestigious 40 under 40 list, also gracing the cover as the first Black woman to do so. She has also won the magazine's Wine Star Award for Visionary of the Year as well as the honor of Advocate of the year from Vine Pair. The experience only intensified her spirit to continue creating change in the industry and beyond. Tahiirah has been featured in Wine Spectator, BET, The Robb Report, and Vogue to name a few. She sits on the board of the James Beard Awards and will continue pioneering the necessary change for wine culture.
