Event Description

Part One: Champagne & Sparkling Wines

Here we shall look at the various types of sparkling wine produced from two major methods (the traditional and tank methods) and match them with simple food. Of course we’ll taste Champagne. In addition we find very decent and affordable fizz in the new world which is extremely worth factoring in as a comparison. Tank method sparklers such as the ever-popular Prosecco - is worth investigating.

Part Two: Sweet Wines

Dessert wines are created from a myriad of various methods ultimately producing a complex range of styles. We’ll learn about the classic noble-rot style with plenty of examples to select from such as Sauternes, Chaume and the Hungarian regal classic, Tokaji. In addition we'll taste the full-bodied Port style and to cap it all off the ultra-sweet Sherry, Pedro-Ximenez.

The Wines:

For this tasting, students will receive tasting kits with 50ml samples of the wines tasted throughout the duration of this evening (sparkling wine samples will be 200ml). 

  • Tasting kit delivery can be made to anywhere within the UK. If you are interested in receiving the course tasting kits, however your delivery address is not within the UK, please get in touch BEFORE booking as depending where you are located, we may be able to still arrange delivery for an additional fee.
  • If you do NOT want to receive a tasting kit, and just want to book onto the evening without receiving wine samples that is absolutely fine! Please just enter the code 8WKREGSESPARK as a ‘Promotional Code’ upon checking out, and the tasting kit associated fees on this tasting will be removed before you make payment. The tasting registration fee is £10.

Unable to commit on the evening? No problem! Anyone registered for this tasting will gain access to the video recording of the live event, so you can always revisit any of these at anytime in the future - whether its because you missed participating in the live evening or if you want to revisit the presentation at a later date.
