A great opportunity to attend an English sparkling wine workshop at one of the best local, and the UK’s most exciting and hi-tech, wineries, Hambledon Vineyard.
Communication from Hambledon Vineyard reads,
Join us for an informative and fun evening. We’re delighted to announce that charismatic leading wine expert Joe Wadsack will be returning to the Vineyard to guide us through another tutored tasting of Champagne and English Sparkling Wine. This will include a dosage tasting where we will look at different levels of dosage and the effect this has on the wine. Participants will have a chance to disgorge a bottle of English Sparkling Wine and put in their own preferred level of dosage followed by finishing the bottle with a cork and wire, foil and labels. In other words, you will get a chance to go some way to making your own bottle of fizz, for you to keep.
Cost: Special offer for this event, £55 per person, including sparkling wine tasting, winery tour, evening of education and entertainment, canapés, and your own custom made (by you) bottle of fizz to take away.
Please note for any inquiries, tickets etc. reference the workshop please email Hambledon Vineyard directly or telephone them on 02392 632358.
As well as the workshop on Friday 25th April, they are also running the workshop on the following dates later in the year. Book now to avoid disappointment.
This is a fantastic evening and well worth the money. Where else can you get a tour round a gravity fed winery and make your own sparkling wine in the UK? One of my colleagues attended a similar event in November 2013 and had a great time and made a fantastic zero dosage wine, the video below will give you an idea of what is involved.
