Champagne and Sparkling (Reading)
Come enjoy a decadent evening of fine sparkling wine! This tasting explores 6 different types of sparkling wine.
For many people the glass of fizz at the start of the meal is among the most enjoyable drink of the evening. We will try different sparkling wines from around the world including Cava, Prosecco, New World fizz and English Sparkling Wine and compare them to champagne.
We will learn about the historical method that gives us the most beautiful bubbly and look at the terms on the labels (e.g. 'NV', 'Brut' and 'Blanc de Blanc') and what these actually tell us about the wine inside the bottle. But the world of sparkling wine is far more diverse than champagne alone - we will also examine other wines made in the same way and ask 'are they as good?'
This is a great chance to try a range of different sparkling wines and to discover which style you prefer.
All tastings include; minimum of 6 wines sourced locally so you can find them easily if you like them, full tasting notes, tasting sheet and use of professional tasting glasses.
All of our tastings can be purchased as a gift - just ask us to send you a Gift Voucher when you book.
