Event Description

Christmas and New Year are a time of celebration, but which fizz should you be ensuring you are stocked up with?

Choosing anything for the festive season can seem like a minefield! With such a wide variety of snacks and treats on offer, which kind of bubbly goes best?

And for such a special occasion, where can I get some really good Champagne? And where are the good value bargains?

We'll sample quality Champagne at different price points and compare top English fizz and taste great vintage Cava to see if it competes. Is there a special seasonal role for Prosecco? Come and find out!

During the evening we will cover:

  • tips for pairing bubbly with Christmas foods
  • the wines that can be truly considered Champagne alternatives
  • how to ensure you have rich, Christmas tastes in your glass of fizz
  • how to understand quality levels for Champagne
  • how to open Champagne with a sword!

All tastings include: a minimum of 6 wines sourced locally so you can find them easily if you like them, full tasting notes, use of professional tasting glasses and nibbles.

All our courses can be purchased as a Gift.
