VALENTINE’S SPARKLING WINES
A bottle of Champagne is for a celebration, but a bottle of the famous fizz is a reason to celebrate in itself: to celebrate the moment. But why stop at champagne? Franciacorta, Bracchetto, top Cremants - so many stunning sparkles and so little time. So come to the wine club and choose from a selection. Italy puts sparkles into practically everything. France is more fussy but nearly always gets it right. The New World got in on the act and copied champagne again and again and the best producers have created something they can call their own. And what about England? We will taste the best of the styles from Spain, Italy, England, France and the New World: white, rose and red – all the colours and all the tastes in time for Cupid’s day.
As usual, there will be some extras and someone will go home with a prize wine after winning the mini-quiz.
