Event description

Description

We are all slightly intimidated by long restaurant wine lists with first growths, single varietals, blends and vintages (was 2003 a good year?) from New and Old World producers and often have to seek advice from a sommelier to avoid taking a stab in the dark and choosing a wine that doesn't match the food or the mood of the evening.

We have become a nation of fizz drinkers - our consumption of bubbles has grown year on year and is now a £2billion industry - and alongside the growing demand has been a big increase in English wine producers who have chosen to specialise in sparkling wine. A Cornish vineyard, Camel Valley, was recently awarded a Royal Warrant for its sparkling wine - a sure indicator that we may have found our wine-making mojo!

But who really knows the difference between Champagne, Sparkling Wine, Prosecco, Spumante, Frizzante, Cava and which is a sure bet when you're in the mood for bubbles?

An evening with acknowledge Champagne expert and International Wine Challenge judge Orsi Szentkiralyi will change all that.

She will take you through a tutored tasting of the best English sparkling wines, which are now acknowledged to be world leaders in quality, rivalling French Champagne and winning international awards for their excellence.

Over two and a half hours you will taste 3 English sparkling wines as well as 1 still white wine and 1 still rosé wine, alongside sharing boards of local charcuterie from Cobble Lane in Islington and English cheeses such as Yarg and Tunworth.

We're sure there will be healthy debate on the merits of the chosen wines, and look forward to an evening of good wines and good company.

The wines you have tasted will be available to order but there is no obligation to buy.
