DUELING BUBBLES: Prosecco Tasting with Alan Tardi
The two most popular sparkling wine categories in the world today are undoubtedly Champagne and Prosecco. Despite fundamental differences in image, production, process and price, the two bubblies have surprisingly much in common, such as their origin, history and evolutionary development of these otherwise different wines.
Join us for a special workshop and tasting with Alan Tardi, award-winning wine author, comparing Champagne and Prosecconoting the obvious differences, while focusing on the many fundamental aspects the two wines have in common. Through the tasting well clarify what makes Champagne and Prosecco essentially unique categories, while also showcasing the commonalities in their individual trajectories. Youll gain a better understanding and appreciation of both wines, as well as the nature of sparkling wine in general.
Some of the wines well taste will be coming directly from Italy for this event, including the sneak preview of a brand-new soon-to-be-released prosecco with super-extended lees aging in autoclave.
Wines tasted will be focused on uncommon prosecchi including:
- Still prosecco without bubbles
- Bottle re-fermented prosecco
- Prosecco with extended lees ageing
- Single village and/or single vineyard prosecco from a variety of different terroirs
- Proseccos in a variety of residual sugar levels
Examples of corresponding Champagnes will be noted, but not tasted.
