Event Description

Whilst sparkling wine is produced worldwide, champagne comes (like myself) from the Champagne region of France. So join me on a journey through the vineyards, the grapes, the different styles and tastes and discover for yourself which one you prefer ... on Bastille Day!!! Let's celebrate this most historical day altogether by opening some Champagne! 

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 the Champagne region has to offer and will run this tasting in the most entertaining and educational way.

I am a published Champagne and Wine Educator, a guest champagne expert for Champagne World Magazine and for Channel 4 'SuperScrimpers', a regular guest speaker on BBC Radio Solent, as well as being an approved staff educator for Marks and Spencer and the Champagne Bureau UK. I am also a Ruinart Champagne Ambassador in the UK, a judge at the International 'Glass of Bubbly' Competition and I even passed the world-acclaimed Champagne Master-Level Certificate back in 2018!

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! 

I would recommend buying in advance: 1 bottle of Champagne ... yes, that's it!!! Any will do, but I would recommend for those on a budget to buy Monsigny from Aldi at only £12.99 a bottle ... it really is worth tasting. PLUS can you wear something blue, white and red ... and a beret?! Come on, it's a party, so we might as well dress up for it!!! ;-)

Let's bring some bubbly fun to your living-room! 

1 ticket will entitle everyone in your household to attend this tasting (no need to buy a ticket per person).
