Sparkling Wines From Around The World (WINCHESTER)
JOIN ME LIVE TO DISCUSS SOME TRULY AMAZING SPARKLING WINES FROM FRANCE, SPAIN, ITALY, NEW ZEALAND, USA, AUSTRALIA, TASMANIA & SOUTH AFRICA!
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! We will therefore discover what the New World has to offer in comparison (Tasmania, Australia, New Zealand, California, Chile, Argentina, South Africa)!
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 the Old Europe and New World has to offer and will run this tasting in the most entertaining and educational!
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 a judge at the International 'Glass of Bubbly' Competition. I passed my Champagne Master-Level Certificate in August 2018, first time!
We shall taste 5 sparkling wines from around the world, from Prosecco to Cava, Champagne, English and South African sparklings ... a tasting NOT to be missed ;-)
AN IDEAL TASTING FOR ALL BUBBLY LOVERS.
PLEASE NOTE: We can confirm that we have complied with the government’s ‘COVID-19 Secure’ guidance on managing the risk of COVID-19 in the workplace. Due to the constantly changing nature of this guidance and advice, our internal operating practices and protocols will be continuously reviewed and immediately updated.

The measures our venues are enforcing will make your experience with us as seamless as possible and will allow us to minimise numbers of people in the venue at any time. Therefore, we will be running at reduced capacity. Only 12 people will ever be allowed to join me at a tasting at St James' Tavern in Winchester, whereas our function room at the Mercure Dolphin Hotel in Southampton is significantly bigger and can accommodate 20 people whilst still enforcing social distancing restrictions.
The situation is fluid still and we are hoping to gradually build back up towards normal proceedings and we are appreciative of your continued patience and support.
