Friday Fizz - France and Italy
Join us for a special tasting celebrating the best of European Sparkling wine.
For many of us Champagne remains the benchmark for the very best in sparkling wine but you can't help but have noticed the increasing popularity of Prosecco - even replacing Champagne as the favourite sparkling wine in many people's lives!
On this tasting we will discover what makes Champagne special and what great value alternatives exist in almost every corner of France. While in Italy we will learn where Prosecco comes from, what makes it different to Champagne, the different styles available and give you our top tips on how to spot the best ones! As well as tasting some of Prosecco's less well known cousins from other parts of Italy including some top notch wines from Franciacorta and Asti!
The tasting will include at least six different wines, some nibbles to match, tasting sheet, use of ISO glasses and expert tutor!
