Just in time for the New Year! Sparkling is a delicious wine type with storied history and many different styles. For this class we’ll discuss 3 methods for making sparkling wine and the differences in flavor. The suggested wines will be around $20 – we’ll explore Crémant, Prosecco, and Cava. We’ll focus on how each wine differs and why it matters. We will go over and taste a Grower Champagne too (although you don’t have to buy it for the class, you can just learn about it! However on a budget, you can get a “split”, or a 187 ml bottle of bigger producer Champagne for $15). We’ll explore:
- How is Champagne made? How are other sparkling wines made?
- What grapes go into each wine and why does it matter?
- The proper method for opening and pouring sparkling wines to keep your fizz
- Why Champagne is a good candidate for aging?
I’ll also tell you how to keep the fizz alive after the class so you can use these wines for your New Year’s Eve festivities!🥂🥂
