Individual Online Champagne Coaching Sessions

Individual Online Champagne Coaching Sessions

When life throws you lemons, make lemonade! The coronavirus crisis has forced me to rethink the services I provide. You are probably also pondering how you would like to spend your free time while quarantined.

If you would like to use some of your spare time to learn more about the “King of wines, and the wine of kings", I am now offering online video chats about champagne. 

You can book me for private individual coaching sessions, or join a group session (see calendar). When the crisis is over, and it is time to crack open a bottle of champagne to celebrate, you will impress your friends with your new knowledge!

If you would like to book me for private coaching sessions, I will develop a personalised program for you based on your level of knowledge and what you what like to get out of the sessions. Cost for individual coaching sessions is 85€/hour for Delectabulles members and 100€/hour for non-members. Please send me an email at cynthia@delectabulles.com to schedule a free consultation to discuss your needs.

We can cover the standard topics included in my 3-hour Masterclasses (see description), or we can delve deeper into specific topics. Here are a couple of ideas for session topics: 

  • Serving tips: storage, chilling, opening, shape of glasses, etc.
  • Factors that affect the price of a bottle: village, non-vintage vs vintage, type of producer, ageing time, etc.
  • Factors that affect aromas and flavours: grape variety, soils, vessel used to ferment, vessel used to age reserve wine, etc.
  • Differences between champagne and other sparkling wines; Prosecco, Cava, Franciacorta, Sekt, etc.
  • History of the Champagne region
  • Geography of the Champagne region
  • How to improve your smelling and tasting skills

Once we have developed a “training” program together, you can purchase the number of sessions you want or need, and we can schedule the sessions when suits you best. I am flexible. It’s not like I am going anywhere, right?

I will be using Zoom to host the online video chats. If you have never used Zoom before, don’t worry, it is simple as pie. When we schedule the free consultation to develop your training program I will send you a link to join the meeting. You just need to follow the simple instructions to download and run Zoom a few minutes before the session starts and I will be there to iron out any kinks. 

You can wear your jammies or get all dolled up. It doesn’t matter. Whatever works for you. And don’t worry, you won’t always be required to pop open a bottle of champagne. That said, sipping a glass of bubbly during our session would probably lift your spirits. 

If you register for a session and need some help choosing a bottle, I would be happy to make personalised recommendations based on where you live. Then you could either order some online or pick some up on your next grocery run. We can make this work. If you only want to drink a glass or two during our session, invest in a good stopper. Here is a model you can buy on Amazon France, but I am sure you could find a similar model wherever you live.  

I am excited about this new opportunity to share my knowledge with more women. Before the coronavirus crisis, only women who were physically in Paris could attend my classes. Now women anywhere in the world can join in the fun and connect with other women while learning about champagne. Onwards and upwards, like a champagne bubble!
