A class that will reveal not everything that sparkles is Champagne!
What is a Cava, Champagne or Crémant? They are all sparkling wines. In this fun, informative session you will be introduced to a global assortment of bubblies. M will begin the "compare and contrast" tour in Europe with a Franciacorta and Prosecco from Italy followed by a side by side tasting of Champagne and Crémant from France. Reminder: Champagne only comes from Champagne, France! Spain is next with their version of sparkling wine called Cava. The tour will then make its way to the Americas to match up sparklers from the U.S and South Africa. The class will conclude with a blood-red sparkling Shiraz from down under. Grape varieties, growing regions, production methods, serving and storage will be discussed. You will also learn how to taste and evaluate. Most importantly 'M' hopes you come to appreciate the extensive variety of sparkling wines available on today's shelves and discover new bubblies to bring to your table. Nine wines will be enjoyed with a variety of light appetizers selected to enhance the sparklers and introduce the concept of food and wine pairing.
