a sparkling soiree
Thu 1 December 2016, 19:00 – 22:00 GMT
Kick off the Christmas season with a journey across Europe from Sussex to Veneto via Catalonia and Champagne.
Our favourite vintner, Andy Gill from Yorkshire Vintners, will spend an hour or so taking you through a range of European sparkling wines.
You will be greeted on arrival with a glass of house prosecco, followed by a sample of a vintage version and a comparison of their taste. Next you will sample a Spanish cava and discuss why prosecco is currently so dominant in the sparkling wine market. After this you will move onto home soil and sample one of the best English versions of sparkling wine. The evening culminates with a sample of the granddaddy of all fizz, champagne. It may be prudent to discuss whether ultimately the English offer might replace the French?
Andy, will talk you through all the wine, explaining the different grapes, terroir and production methods.
Finish off your late-night shopping with an interesting and intimate night upstairs in the blue velvet lounge, fossgate SOCIAL, 25 fossgate, york yo1 9ta
