Of course we all know about Champagne (and we'll certainly be reminding ourselves about it this evening!), but there are brilliant sparkling wines made in just about every corner of the globe. So we'll take a close look at the wonderfully peachy Prosecco and Franciacorta from Italy, the hugely under-rated Cava from Spain and Champagne look-a-likes from the New World, many of which would give their more famous European siblings a run for their money! We'll even be trying a glorious English Sparkling (and finding out why top Champagne producers are rushing over to the UK to buy up land!)
You'll learn how they get the bubbles in the wine, see what the difference is between a Vintage and a non-Vintage and find out who invented Champagne but, most importantly, we'll taste 6 different top quality sparkling wines and you can discover for yourself which one is your favourite and whether Champagne deserves that high price tag!
