Sparkling Wine and Champagne Valentines Evening (York)
A night to celebrate and indulge in all things beautiful and bubbly!
We all enjoy a glass of fizz to celebrate birthdays, Christmas, weddings and especially today for Valentines Day! Tonight we will give you the chance to taste six beautiful sparkling wines and compare them side by side.... Will you be able to tell the difference?
The world of sparkling wines is getting bigger all the time- from fruity, fun Italian Prosecco to rich biscuity Champagne there is a big range of styles and prices to select from. But how are they different? Is one better value than the others and which one do you like best? As it's Valentines Day, we'll also be tasting a delicious pink fizz and learning how they make that too!
Included in this evenings tasting is the chance to try
- English Sparkling Wine
- Champagne NV
- Vintage Champagne
- Premium Cava
- New World Champagne Look-A-Like
We will teach you about how these wines are made, and most importantly how the different wine-making techniques are the key to the different flavours in the wine. We will talk about the best food matches to bring out the taste of these different fizzes including a very special cheese from the Champagne region which pairs beautifully with the wine itself.
We all know Champagne is the king of sparkling wine, but would you like to taste a normal NV Champagne next to a premium Vintage Champagne and learn what the difference is? Would you like to hear a little bit about the history of this great wine; the story of people like Dom Perignon, Veuve Clicquot and Lily Bollinger have been responsible for crafting the wine that we know and love today? Not only will you taste delicious Champagne tonight, you'll learn a little bit about why it is so special.
But that's not all! Discover the best Champagne look-a-likes in the world; English sparkling wine, made in exactly the same way as Champagne, we have one of the best sparkling wines right here on our doorstep. You may have heard a little of the fuss surrounding our own fizz but have you had a chance to taste it yet?
All our evening tastings include: 6 beautiful sparkling wines and Champagnes to try, use of professional tasting glasses, presentation on how the wines are made and how to taste them 'like a professional', tasting notes for you to take home, tips and hints about where to shop locally for your sparkling wines, nibbles on the evening to match the wines.
This evening makes a lovely gift for the fizzy wine lover in your life, if you would like a gift voucher sent to you with the details of the tasting written on, please just use the 'send me a gift voucher' link on your confirmation email after you have booked your place.
