This special class focuses only on the wines of Champagne, France – no CAVA, no Prosecco, no California bubbles. We will learn, for example, where Champagne is located, why the place is special for sparkling wine production (climate, soil grape varietals), how Champagne is made (how do they get those bubbles in the bottle?), how to taste, store and serve it, as well as important terms (Tete Cuvee, Brut, Blanc de Noir, etc). And we will, of course, be tasting some of Champagne’s finest.
