WORLD OF WINE - Champagne & Sparkling Wine
Come and enjoy a decadent evening of fine sparkling wine with us at the DoubleTree By Hilton Hotel. This tasting explores 6 different types of sparkling wine with a fish & chip supper for £12 extra on the night - a chance to try a most spectacular food and wine pairing (see below for details)!
For many people the glass of fizz at the start of the meal is among the most enjoyable drink of the evening. These wines are crafted by the wine maker and the processes involved in making the sparkle is key. We will try different Champagne look-a-likes from around the world (e.g. Cava, Prosecco) and compare Champagne with English Sparkling Wine!
We will learn about the historical method that gives us the most beautiful bubbly and look at the terms on the labels (e.g. 'NV', 'Brut' and 'Blanc de Blanc') and what these actually tell us about the wine inside the bottle. But the world of sparkling wine is far more diverse than Champagne alone - we will also examine other wines made in the same way and ask 'are they as good?'
Soon after the evening starts the restaurant staff will bring in a plate of fish and chips (or vegetarian alternative). Champagne with deep fried food is a classic food and wine pairing that simply must be experienced! You can sample your plate with at least 3 wines to vote for the best match.
Please email us after booking to confirm which of these food options you prefer (pay the extra to the Brisket Restaurant, DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel on the night):
- Battered haddock with chips and peas and chunky tartare sauce
- Battered cod with chips and peas and chunky tartare sauce
- Vegetarian: roasted butternut squash filled with veg and quinoa topped with grilled goat’s cheese & served with mixed leaves
