The Wine School at l’Alliance Française
Please join us for this second of our three classes focused on sparkling wines.
In Champagne!, we will focus in on, taste, and discuss the dry white wines from Champagne as we look at how they are made (methode champenoise), their styles and nuances, where and from what grapes they are made, serving, glassware, and Champagne with food. We will taste through the diversity of dry Champagne as we look at a total of 15 wines.
The wines tasted will be served in Riedel Degustazione stemware and a selection of cheeses and bread will be served.
