Rosé Sparkling and Champagne Class and Tasting

champagnerosestrip7pm   Monday November 28th at The Wine School at l’Alliance Française

Please join us for this third of our series of three classes focused on sparkling wines.

In Rosé Sparkling and Champagne, we will focus in on, taste, and discuss only Rosé Sparkling wines wines from around the world with an emphasis on Champagne. We’ll look at how they’re made (all methode champenoise), how they get their color (a variety of ways), their styles and nuances, where and from what grapes they’re made, as will pink fizz with food.
