The French arguably make the best sparkling wine in the world – Champagne, but their counterparts in the New World are catching up fast with their own versions ... England included, especially our very own country, Hampshire!
We will blind-taste 6 of the very best Hampshire sparkling wines, and decide for ourselves once and for all which one deserves to be our favourite! This is an opportunity to taste high quality sparkling wines coming from great locations around Hampshire.
My name is Cecile Bergart, and as a Champagne Expert (born amongst the vineyards of the Champagne Region, France), I will be presenting you with the very best bubbles my adopted county has to offer and will run this tasting in the most entertaining and educational way!
My favourite tasting by far, so come and join me for a truly decadent evening, which I will start off by sabring a bottle of Champagne for your eyes only! I was trained by the Confrerie des Sabreurs and will be delighted to show off my skills, opening up a bottle of champagne with a sword, just like Napoleon used to do!
