What better way to celebrate the closing of another year than by popping a bottle of delicious sparkling wine! More than just Champagne, fine sparkling wines can now be found in regions like England, Tasmania, and Oregon’s Willamette Valley.
Learn about the intensive and delicate processes that go into making high-quality sparkling wines, what makes Champagne so special, and what are the best non-Champagne alternatives. Of course, we’ll also dive into the most successful pairings with sparkling wine and which wines pair best with which styles of food.
