IMW Luxury Sparkling Wines Blind Tasting

Tuesday 29 November 2016, 06:00pm - 08:30pm

Come and taste up to 70 Sparkling Wines.

The Sparkling Wine sector is clearly one that is growing in importance. In the UK alone, the Sparkling Wine category (excluding Champagne) is now worth over £1 billion. But what of the quality levels? Is there a place for high-end Sparkling Wine catering to the luxury market? Or is that niche still reserved for Champagne only?

Before the Christmas parties begin, this timely event offers you the opportunity to make up your own mind.

Come and taste over 70 top-end traditional method Sparkling Wines, sourced from the six main national producers, France, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, England, and the USA. The wines will be presented in style categories and tasted entirely blind. Some Champagne ringers may be inserted to heighten the interest!

Identity, stocklists and prices will be provided on a crib sheet at the end, for you to make your own assessment.

Guests tickets are priced at £55.00 with concessions for MWs and MW Students
