CORKED!

 Aboard the SS Bon Vin on the Annual Champagne New Years Cruise, Sommelier Marc Le  Blanc and champagne representatives and enthusiasts are shocked to learn that Tampo Tampo, a tiny island nation, is globally marketing “tampagne”,  to the eager masses for 99¢ a bottle.  Love affairs and friendships on board change with intoxicating speed as the passengers cope with a whole new world in an uncertain future.  Can albatrosses really bring good luck?  Is the Bon Vin the Love Boat or the next Titanic?

A santé!
