Event Description

Come and enjoy a decadent evening of fine sparkling wines. We'll sample 6 wines including Champagne, Cava, Prosecco, English Sparkling wine and two sparkling wines from elsewhere in the world.

For many people a glass of fizz before the start of a meal can be among the most enjoyable drinks of the evening.

The process involved in making the bubbles is key to the flavour and style in the glass. We will sample Champagne (made using the traditional method) and compare with other bubblies made from around the world.

And with all of that loevly wine, we’ll have a couple of specially-selected cheeses on hand to mop up the bubbles and to show just how well fizz and cheese can go together.

During the evening we will cover:

  • the differences between Champagne, Prosecco and Cava
  • a comparison with New World sparkling wines
  • perfect foods to complement Champagne
  • how to open Champagne with a sword!

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

All our courses can be purchased as a Gift Voucher either as a dated or undated voucher.
