Veuve Clicquot's Mail Truck Stops in Seattle
The Veuve Clicquot Mail Truck stems from Madame Clicquot herself, the French businesswoman who took over her husband's wine company at the age of 27 upon his death. Inspired by Madame Clicquot's correspondence style--snail mail--the glam rig, decked out in the company's signature yellow color, is traveling around the country encouraging people to send handwritten letters to family and friends (an oh-so-enjoyable activity in this age of e-mail, texting, and facetime) and will be dispensing delectable appetizers (think oysters and truffle fries) and Veuve samples.
