NOV 21 - INTRO TO SPARKLING WINE: Show me the bubbles!
started by Winenut (16 August 2009)
16 August 2009
Big bubbles, little bubbles… big price tags, little price tag - What’s the difference?
This lightly educational/ mostly social guided tasting will encourage you to think more of bubbles than just its ability to cause intoxication!
We will be tasting over 6 different sparkling wines including a few classics and a HARD TO FIND Brazilian Beauty!
Plus you may even pick up a few tips to impress your friends this holiday party season!
As usual, we will be socialising in a fun, unique way! The tasting will be in the SPEED-TASTING format.
This does NOT mean that we will be drinking quickly, like we were in Uni! And it doesn’t mean that we are speed-dating!!!
With each different round (about every 20 minutes or so) you will be presented with a new glass of bubbles seat assignment!
This is not a singles event, this is a mingles event!
