There is something about bubbles that makes people relax, engage, and enjoy. Join Julia Coney, Wine Enthusiast's 2020 Social Visionary Award Recipient and sparkling wine aficionado, as she explores the bubbles in this intimate and fun conversation.
In this intimate conversation, Julia will help us discover the differences from the traditional method of champagne to the tank method that is Prosecco and understand how those differences can be great; from how the sparklers are produced, the grapes used, and how they taste.
A devout sparkling wine enthusiast, Julia will demonstrate how they can be the most versatile wines to have with and without food. Made by almost every wine-producing region in the world, sparkling wines are to be appreciated year-round for the pleasure of enjoying with food. We'll learn how they can pair with various dishes from hearty meals to light appetizers, from aperitif to accompanying a family dinner, because, in the end, bubbles bring the party.
Bisol Prosecco Superiore Brut Crede $19.99

The webinar will be recorded and archived for American Friends members after the event.
