Rebecca Rosenberg is a champagne geek, lavender farmer, and award-winning novelist. Rebecca first fell in love with methode champenoise in Sonoma Valley, California, where she lives. Over decades of delicious research, she has explored the wine cellars of France, Spain, Italy, and California in search of fine champagne. When Rebecca discovered the real-life stories of the Champagne Widows of France, she knew she’d dedicate years to telling the stories of these remarkable women who made champagne the worldwide phenomenon it is today. Rebecca is a champagne historian, tour guide, and champagne cocktail expert for Breathless Wines. Other award-winning novels include The Secret Life of Mrs. London and Gold Digger, the Remarkable Baby Doe Tabor.

THE SECRET LIFE OF MRS. LONDON (Lake Union) is about the love triangle between Houdini, Jack London, and his fascinating wife, Charmian London.

GOLD DIGGER, The Remarkable Baby Doe Tabor (Lion Heart) is about a twenty-year-old girl who comes west for a gold mine, is abandoned and pregnant, and left to work the mine alone. Baby Doe Tabor becomes the richest, most scandalous women in America, before losing it all.

Rebecca’s upcoming books, CHAMPAGNE WIDOWS, are a series about three French widows who pioneered champagne making, conquered wars, laws and customs against women, and made champagne a world-wide phenomenon.

Praise for Champagne Widows

“This effervescent historical novel paints a richly detailed portrait of the enterprising Veuve Clicquot. The twinned plots of Clicquot and Napoleon Bonaparte’s rise and fall are filled with detail that give life to this far-off time. The prose is light, yet detailed, and peppered with moments of wry humor.  Rosenberg’s characterization of Napoleon is well-crafted and give his character new life.  Clicquot’s character is charming, and readers will love getting to know her.  Rosenberg has a superb eye for blending humor with drama.” ~Publisher’s Weekly BookLife Prize

“For anyone who loves champagne, a must-read novel about Veuve Clicquot.”~ Judithe Little, best-selling author of The Chanel Sisters

“The sun-drenched vineyards of France, a real-life heroine who against all odds refuses to give up her dreams… and champagne. What’s not to love? And that’s just what Rebecca Rosenberg delivers in Champagne Widows. Barbe-Nicole Clicquot was a woman ahead of her time, a fascinating blend of ingenuity, heart, and sheer tenacity, with a nose for wine and a head for business.  A 19th century widow who built an empire as war raged all around her.  Note: This richly woven tale is best savored slowly, though with all delicious things, it won’t be easy.” ~ Barbara Davis, best-selling author of The Last of the Moon Girls.   Champagne Widows, in partnership with Industry Entertainment, is being developed into a scripted series. Industry Entertainment is one of the leading management and production companies in Hollywood.
