When it comes to bubbles, our spirits light up: almost every wine producing country in the world produces sparkling wine of some sort: Champagne, Prosecco, Cava, Crémant, Blanquette de Limoux, Franciacorta, Sekt, American sparkling wines etc. What stands behind those names? What are the different processes? Which grape varieties are used? How have marketing strategies differed across the categories? 

This dinner session will include the tasting of 5 different sparkling wines with refill. Home-made nibbles will complement this tasting. 

About the Instructor: Hélène Goble comes from a wine-producing family in Bordeaux and organizes wine tasting events and annual wine tours of Bordeaux and Champagne. As well as presenting wines, she will introduce you to the French ’savoir-vivre’ and secrets of wine selection that will leave you impressed. Hélène is a graduate of the Wine and Spirit Education Trust in London.
