I heard someone dare to voice what I privately think the other day – that they preferred Prosecco to Champagne. I’m told if you think that, you just haven’t tasted the right Champagne. Victoria Daskal is holding two Mummy Wine Club evenings on Thursday 2 and Saturday 4 December to address just that sort of question.
A Sparkling Evening
Thursday 2 December, 7-9pm
High Road Studio, 129 Chiswick High Rd, Chiswick, W4 2ED
This is a perfect chance to put the sparkling wines to the test and truly understand the difference between Champagne, Prosecco, English Sparkling, and other classic fizz! Victoria will guide you through the aromas, flavours, and quality levels and explain how each wine is made and what makes it unique. She will finish with a compare and contrast of two classic dessert wines and discuss their ideal food matches. Cheese & charcuterie will be included to taste along with the wines.
Ticket price £59pp
Champagne & Cheese Masterclass
Saturday 4 December, 2-4.30pm
Ivy Crescent, Chiswick W4 5NG
In this exclusive masterclass, Victoria Daskal will lead guests through a carefully selected flight of all the major Champagne styles. Participants will taste Blanc de Blancs vs Blanc de Noirs, Vintage vs Non-Vintage, Brut Zero vs Demi-Sec, and Rosé Champagne and discuss what makes each style so unique and how to taste the differences between them. We will taste from Champagne producers of all sizes – from tiny family growers to prestigious Champagne houses to cover all ground.
The cheese pairings will help illustrate Champagne’s exceptional food-friendly versatility at the dinner table. By the end of the tasting guests will know Champagne is more than just celebration bubbles, it is a fascinating fine wine with a long history and exciting future.
Ticket price £105pp
