How To Sip Luxury with Jessica Altieri
Living the High Life: How To Sip Luxury
Jessica Altieri – Water Sommelier and Luxury Brand Influencer
Luxury has always fascinated humans. Cave dwellers admired amber and bright pebbles, rough cut as they were. In the time of the Greeks, people read Plato’s marvelous descriptions of Atlantis, covered in gold, silver and mythical metal orichalcum with wonder, imagining what life was like in that faraway land that now lay under the sea. Medieval royalty bedecked themselves with as many gemstones as would fit on a single person without making it impossible to walk.
Even then, sometimes not walking was a willing price to pay for Awesome Middle Ages Bling. (Just saying.)
Today, the luxury lifestyle looks a little different. From writers such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ian Fleming come descriptions of elegance in different 20th-century time periods. From 50 Cent and Snoop Dogg, we get accounts of everyday living accompanied by jewelry, cars and expensive drinks.
Well, our hiphop friends aren’t far off, because cars and beverages are among the go-to luxury items humans in the modern era enjoy most of all. Here are a few of our favorites for your consideration.
The Luxury Lifestyle Today
So, did I mention that rides and bevies pair exceptionally well? Because if not, let me just say it again: People have loved drinking expensive things in the back of expensive vehicles since the dawn of time. Today I’ve paired a few of the most stunning new cars on the market with a few of the crispest, most delicious libations available. Feel free to mix and match!
Bentley New Continental GT
Put on your driving suit, because it’s time to tour the Amalfi coast, admire the epic sea views of Morocco or climb the fresh-breezed mountains of British Columbia.
“The new Continental GT features clean, superformed lines and a wide, low body, evoking a sense of speed and presence,” explains the website, adding that the car was “created for agile, exhilarating driving.” Oh, and it’s green, too! With best-in-class fuel emissions, you can now drive a smidge too fast without worrying about Mother Earth. Yay!
Described as a “large barge in charge” by Autoweek, which adds that a ride in the Rolls-Royce Phantom feels like “being whisked about in a sedan chair carried by beauty queens stepping on marshmallows while wearing extra-large and comfy bunny slippers.” In other words, the Phantom is a luxury ride with no parallel when it comes to comfort and quiet.
With 287 pounds of sound-dampening material, a quarter inch of glazing on the glass and foam-lined tires, you don’t need to worry about a single road noise disrupting your classical music or hushed conversation.
… except the sound of sipping.
Australia has a firm place in the history of winemaking. None deserves its reputation so richly as Penfold’s, which came on the scene in 1844. Its annals include founding by Dr. Christopher and Mary Penfold, but when he turned to focusing on his medical career, the vineyard fell largely into Mary’s hands. She was succeeded by her daughter, Georgina – proving once again that women can rock the business sphere just as hard as any man.
In the last 170-plus years, the vineyard has transformed itself into a name synonymous with luxury, greatness, taste and pedigree. (BTW, this might be a good time to mention that at one point there was a Penfold’s car, shaped like a wine bottle, combining the two very things we’re talking about here today.)
If you’re not in a wine mood, however, how about a glass of water?
For those not yet in the know, Svalbard is one of the coldest regions in the world. So cold, in fact, that it was chosen as the site of the Global Seed Vault, a bunker-like storage facility that houses thousands of seed varietals. Think of it as the human race’s “Oh damn, the world has ended and we better figure out how to save seeds without power so we can start farming again when the dust from the supervolcano finally clears in a hundred years” form of insurance.
Yeah, it’s that cold.
Much like the luxury water Svalbarði, award-winning and ultra-low-mineral still Arctic iceberg water, perfect for a refreshing crystalline draught or the world’s most delicious cup of tea. Believe it or not, it is the world’s northernmost bottled water and is tagged as a “taste of snow in the air,” due to those lingering glacial flavors. Trust me, don’t miss out on this one.
A Day to Remember … A Life to Remember
Hopefully now you have a few more ideas about your next picnic/joy ride. Your honey will ride in high style, thirst quenched by the perfect vino and most luscious water. So whip out that calendar, schedule in a free Saturday and sit down to dream about luxury. Or, if you can, actually live it (wink, wink), all life long.
Any questions? Feel free to get in touch with Jessica Altieri just as soon as you like!
