Sparkling wine and Champagne Workshop

COMING SOON | For all Wine Lovers | Celebrate the end of the year with bubbles

Being born and raised in Champagne, I developed natural affinities with sparkling wines.

In this workshop, you'll discover how different sparkling wine styles produce an impressive range of flavors.

We'll discuss how tasting a sparkling wine differs from evaluating a still wine.
Of course, we will practice and describe the flavor of two wines. You’ll also experiment with different glasses and temperatures to see what you like best.

What a great way to start celebrating the Holidays!

A two-hour training, including a guided tasting and a live Q&A session

At the end of the training,  you will feel more comfortable navigating the sparkling wine aisle and more knowledgeable about what to expect when tasting a glass of sparkling wine or Champagne.

More specifically, I will take you through these three topics.
