The Champagne Masterclass 2012
December 29, 2012 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
THE CHAMPAGNE MASTERCLASS — The best Champagne educational event of the year!
NOTE: ONLY TWO SEATS LEFT! (as of 12/28/2012)
Just in time for New Year’s Eve, when you can impress your friends with your encyclopedic knowledge of the wine world, comes the Twin Cities Wine Education Champagne Masterclass.
So why is this such a big deal? Quite simple: can you name the three main regions of Champagne? Can you name the three types of soil in the region? Can you name the three grapes used in the production? Can you (here’s a toughie) name the three codes on every Champagne label you can use to determine something very important about the production style of that wine?
So not only will we be talking about these ‘rules of three’ but also cover a wealth of other subjects including: the definition of the sweetness levels (Brut, Extra Dry, etc.), the production method that makes this amazing wine, and the history of the region. Of course this will be accented by tasting through a wide variety of the real deal. The only wine served for this class is real Champagne from Champagne, France (hence the price is a bit higher than other classes). We will end the class with a philosophical discussion about what makes a great Champagne, is it worth it, and how does it compare to other great wines of the world that cost just as much.
Only $50 per person — all online registration fees paid by Twin Cities Wine. Class begins at 3:00 pm sharp. Free parking behind North Loop Wine and Spirits.
