Who am I? My name is Cécile Bergart and I am the owner of the Hampshire Wine School. I was born in the Champagne region of France. I am a published Champagne and Wine Educator (lately in the Hampshire Cookbook for the Prince’s Trust, alongside Delia Smith, Paul Hollywood and Marcus Wareing), a guest champagne expert for Champagne World Magazine and for Channel 4 'SuperScrimpers' on budget champagnes, a regular guest speaker on BBC Radio Solent and Talk TV (Freeview Channel 8), as well as being an approved Wine Educator for Marks and Spencer, for which I run regular in-store wine tastings. I trained beverage staff at both Claridge’s and The Dorchester and run wine tastings for their own clients for many years. I was the 2014-2015 Ruinart Champagne Ambassador in the UK and a judge at the International ‘Glass of Bubbly’ Competition. I also PASSED and RECEIVED THE WORLD-ACCLAIMED CHAMPAGNE MASTER-LEVEL CERTIFICATE IN AUGUST 2018.
