Sparkling Wines From Around The World (WINCHESTER)
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS TASTING WILL NOW START AT 7.30pm INSTEAD OF 7pm
TASTE SOME TRULY AMAZING SPARKLING WINES FROM FRANCE, SPAIN, ITALY, SOUTH AFRICA AND ENGLAND, OF COURSE!
The French arguably make the best sparkling wine in the world – Champagne, but their counterparts in the OLD WORLD, such as Spain and Italy all have their their own sparkling versions. From Champagne, to Cremant, Cava, Prosecco and Franciacorta, Europe is producing some truly stunning examples of both Traditional Method and Charmat Method sparkling wines.
The New World is catching up fast with their own versions too ... England included! We will therefore discover what the New World has to offer in comparison (Tasmania, South Africa, and Hampshire included), and taste 6 sparkling wines from the World, and decide for ourselves once and for all which one deserves to be our favourite!
My name is Cecile Bergart, and as a Champagne Expert (born amongst the vineyards of the Champagne Region, France), I will be presenting you with the very best bubbles the Old Europe and New World has to offer and will run this tasting in the most entertaining and educational way!
I am a published Champagne and Wine Educator, a guest champagne expert for Champagne World Magazine and for Channel 4 'SuperScrimpers', a regular guest speaker on BBC Radio Solent, as well as being an approved staff educator for Marks and Spencer. I was the 2014/15 Ruinart Champagne Ambassador in the UK and I am now a judge at the International 'Glass of Bubbly' Competition.
NEWS FLASH: I passed my Champagne Master-Level Certificate in August 2018, first time! ;-)
