Bubbles, Bubbles, Bubbles Was A Blast!

Bubbles, Bubbles, Bubbles Was A Blast!




What an amazing Wine Weekend Kickoff!  We gathered on Sunday, July 2nd for a celebration of all that sparkles.  The day began with a Champagne Edu-Tasting with Master Sommelier David Glancy.  We received a brief history of Champagne, how it came to be and the development of other sparkling wines of the world.  We tasted through a historic flight of Dom Perignon, Ruinart and Veuve Clicquot.

 
    

 

​
 
      


After the Edu-Tasting, we went on to enjoy the Around the World Bubbles Tasting and Bubbles Bazaar with over 20 wines featured.  See the amazing wine list! Guests were able to purchase all that their hearts desired and many took home some delicious juice!

 
    






After the Tasting and Bazaar, we all gathered for an interactive screening of the movie A Year in Champagnedirected by David Kennard.  The documentary, follows the cycle of the vines and the cellar in the coldest, wettest wine region of France. Film star and renown Champagne importer, Martine Saunier, joined us as our special guest to taste wines from the movie and discuss what goes into making the most famous sparkling wines in the world. We snacked on Gourmet bites which paired beautifully with wines from the movie, including Gonet Medeville Brut Tradition, Stephane Coquillette Carte D'Or, and Diebolt Vallois Blac de Blancs.
