What's included

For your evening out with us we’ll welcome you with The Gusbourne Estate Brut Reserve vintage English Sparkling wine and you’ll later taste a non vintage Champagne as well as two more superb sparkling wines from around the world.

 

This is not just any wine tasting – there’s a glass of each to enjoy which will be served in three different glass styles to help you understand how the flavour differs from each. We’ll keep you entertained while you discover the aromas and flavours of each sparkling wine and the difference in styles and you’ll find out more about how these fantastic fizzes are made.
