This is a fundamental course designed for the bubbly curious and sparkling enthusiasts wanting to explore the magic of all sparkling wines. We will discuss how bubbles are created, where they come from and what to expect from different regions and styles.
Grab your favorite bubbles and join us as we explore: **Blanquette de Limoux, Cremant d’Alsace, Prosecco, Cava, Franciacorta, Champagne, and Sekt.** We will define the sweetness levels from zero dosage, brut, extra-dry to demi- sec. Understand the terms: Blanc de Blanc, Blanc de Noir.
Do you reserve sparkling wines only for celebrations? We agree that nothing has a party like the pop of a bottle. However, sparkling wines can be enjoyed all day, every day! In this course, we will help you find your “sparkling style,” as we explain the flavor profiles of different bubbles from around the world.
By the end of this class you will confidently peruse the sparkling wine section of your local store or fave website.
