English Sparkling Wine Tasting + MEET THE PRODUCER! (ONLINE TASTING)
Here at the Hampshire Wine School we are passionate about great English Sparkling Wines!
Tonight, we shall discuss the rise in quality of properly crafted English Sparkling Wines and why the South of England is doing ever so well when it comes to Sparkling Wines! Watch out Champagne!!! ;-)
My name is Cécile Bergart, and as a Champagne Expert (born amongst the vineyards of the Champagne Region, France), I will be discussing the very best bubbles England has to offer and will run this tasting in the most entertaining and educational way LIVE via ZOOM!
But I shall not be alone having some bubbly fun on the night ... MARK DARLEY OF ALL ANGELS VINEYARD will be joining us too!!!! MEET THE PRODUCER and have a chance to ask him your very own questions about growing grapes in Berkshire ... so do not miss out on this most incredible opportunity!
All Angels is the brand name of Enborne Vineyards Limited, of which Mark is the owner. The vineyard is at his family farm, Church Farm, in Enborne, West Berkshire. "Our philosophy is to ensure that we release only the highest quality wine of which we can be proud. We have consistently produced and released only small quantities - in collaboration with Emma Rice of Hattingley Valley in Hampshire - to ensure this is the case." May I remind you that Emma won the UK Vineyards Association's Winemaker of The Year Award?!
The two wines that we shall be discussing AND tasting on the night have proved incredibly successful with wine critics and judges alike (me included, thank you very much): All Angels Classic Cuvée 2014 won Silver at the 2018 Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships and Gold at the 2019 Sommelier Wine Awards, whilst All Angels Sparkling Rosé 2014 won Bronze at the inaugural WineGB awards in 2018.
THANKS TO OUR PARTNERSHIP WITH ALL ANGELS AND MARK, you can buy a bottle of each of his cuvées at a discounted price during the whole month of May WITH free delivery too! £25 each instead of £29.95 AND FREE delivery (you are very welcome! lol).
