Champagne Forever

in-person90min

Description

Oscar Wild once said, "Only the unimaginative can fail to find a reason for drinking Champagne" - and hopefully after this experience, you'll always have a reason to reach for a bottle (or two!) of Champagne. We'll start at the very beginning and tell the tale of Champagne - the region, the people, the history, the grapes, and the wines. We'll taste through a few different styles of Champagne, including rosé, blanc de blancs, and blanc de noirs. We'll come to appreciate why Champagne is so lauded, legendary, and luxurious, and why it's the favorite wine of so many sommeliers (including me!). There really is nothing else as delicious and decadent, so come find out for yourself!

Sommelier

Every glass of wine tells a story, and I love sharing those stories with others. I'm a finance professional by day, and wine fanatic at night. My wine travels have brought me to Bordeaux, Champagne, Porto, the Douro Valley, Temecula, and Long Island, and I've worked wine events, tastings, and retail. I hold a WSET Level 3 Award in Wines, with specialized knowledge in the wines of France.
