Just in time for the holidays, this seminar will explore the extraordinary circumstances (historical and natural), which brought Champagne wine into being. Students will come away understanding the Champagne method and the Appellation structure, and, perhaps most importantly, the nuances which make Champagne the wine for all of our happiest moments! Traditionally a wine region dominated by big producers (as opposed to farmers), the last 50 years has seen the rise of a new set of Champagne makers: the Grower Producers. These wines represent the true identity and terroir of Champagne: the highest quality fruit, from the best sites, with the longest aging times, at a fraction the cost of comparable wines from the big historic producers.
The Master Class Series with Tanya Morning Star Darling CWE, FWS is designed for wine professionals and serious enthusiasts of all variety, who wish to explore their most beloved wine regions with a deep level of curiosity, and detail.
