World of Wine Champagne, Sparkling Wines
Champagne is one of the most iconic wines in the world- tonight we will learn about the historical method which gives us this beautiful bubbly. We will touch on the imput of figures such as Dom Perignon, Lily Bollinger and Vueve Clicquot, who's Champagnes are now so familar to us.
We will also discuss the technical terms behind the labels such as 'NV', 'Brut' and 'Blanc de Blanc': what do these actually tell us about the drink inside the bottle? But the world of sparkling wine is far more diverse than Champagne alone; we will examine other wines, made in the image of Champagne, and ask 'are the as good?' and 'are the really so different from the real thing?'. We will also talk about the rise of Prosecco, this sparkling Italian wine is made in a very different way to Champagne, but its popularity has exploded in recent years- why is it so popular? Plenty to learn about, taste and discuss in this line-up!
