Other Bubbles, or “It’s Not Champagne!”
Join us for a pre-Valentine’s Day celebration of sparkling wines from around the world. For only $49, taste over 30 sparkling wines – including a couple of Pet-Nats you may have been hearing about!
More than 90% of the world’s sparkling wines are produced outside of Champagne, France, some using the same traditional (Champagne) method, others using other methods, such as tank (aka Charmat), transfer method, ancestral method, or carbon injection. In some cases, the same grapes that comprise Champagne – Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier – are used, but sometimes producers use other grapes – Riesling and Shiraz, for example – to create crisp, refreshing, complex, and delicious sparkling wines, and often at a fraction of the cost of real Champagne.
On February 11, compare and contrast wines from countries around the world, including Cremant from the Loire Valley and Burgundy in France; Prosecco, Franciacorta and Moscato from Italy; Sekt from Germany; and Cava from Spain. And don’t miss the approachable New World sparkling wines from California, Oregon, and New Mexico, and Australia.
Soak up the bubbles with some delicious cheese and charcuterie from our gourmet department.
Purchase tickets for yourself or as a gift for the bubbles lover in your life.
