World of Wine - Champagne and Sparkling
Join us for an evening of decadence as we celebrate the wonderful world of bubbles!
Of course we 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 from Italy, the hugely under-rated Cava from Spain, a French Cremant, an English Sparklng and Champagne look-a-likes from the New World, many of which would give their more famous European siblings a run for their money!
You'll learn how they get the bubbles in the wine, we'll talk about the tank method and the traditional method, 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!
