Charles blew me away with his knowledge of sparkling wines at a morning session at TexSomm this summer. (There’s nothing like bubbles for breakfast!!) Immediately, I knew I had to have him share his tales and insight with you, too. Grab a bottle of bubbly, listen in to this short, 10-minute podcast, and prepare for some delicious toasts of your own!
Among other things, we discussed:
- selecting and serving sparkling wines for special occasions like weddings (with a great cost-saving idea.)
- what sparkling wines to serve with cake or desserts
- getting help in choosing sparkling wines
- suggestions for sparkling wines and a Champagne to try to get started in learning more
Charles also explains a bit about what it means to be a Master of Wine. (Whew! What a lot of work it takes to accomplish that!)
Click over, listen and learn with the VineSleuth Podcast with Charles Curtis, MW, here.
Once you’re finished listening, click on over to our post on Global Champagne Day this Friday, October 25, so you can learn a little more about Champagne, read a few reviews of several Champagnes and sparkling wines, and impress your friends with all your new knowledge tomorrow.
