Private Champagne Webinars, Tasting Workshops and Excursions

Private Champagne Webinars, Tasting Workshops and Excursions

If you would like to learn more about the “King of wines, and the wine of kings", I would love to share my knowledge with you.

 

I offer bespoke online webinars, in-person workshops and off-the-beaten path excursions to Champagne in English or French, and for both men and women for:

  • team building sessions
  • birthdays and anniversaries
  • get-togethers with family or friends

What makes me a little bit different is that I only use champagnes made by women, and I only take people to visit houses where women play an important role. It is my small way of supporting women in a male-dominated industry.

 

Webinars

For the online lectures I develop personalised content for you based on your level of knowledge about champagne and what you what like to get out of the session. Depending on the topic, some are more interactive than others. The cost for a private session is 250-300€ depending on the duration and content. Unlimited number of participants. 

Here are two of my most popular lectures:

  • Pairing Champagne and Food
  • Bubbly Badasses: Women in the History of Champagne

And here are a few other topics:

  • Sparkling Wines from around the World
  • Opera and Champagne: the Perfect Pairing
  • WWI and Champagne: the Darkest Hours

In most of my webinars I usually provide useful tips like: 

  • 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 le champagne (the wine) and la Champagne (the region)
  • Women in the history of champagne
  • How to improve your smelling and tasting skills

I use Zoom to host the webinars. If you need some help choosing a bottle, I would be happy to make personalised recommendations based on where you live. I have compiled a list of houses where women play an important role

When the coronavirus 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!

 

In-person tasting events or workshops

Here are a few of my most popular ones:

  • Champagne Masterclass: Everything you wanted to know about bubbly, but were too afraid to ask! Why is champagne so expensive? What is the difference between champagne, cava, crémant and prosecco? What should I look for on a label? How long can I keep a bottle? What food should I serve with it? Where can I buy good value-for-money champagnes?
     
  • Champagne and Cheese Workshop: You probably don't need a description for this one, but you will have fun pairing 4 different champagnes with a selection of at least 5 different cheeses. Between sipping and tasting you will learn why champagne pairs so well with cheese, and how to predict which champagne will pair better with which cheese.
     
  • Champagne and Chocolate Workshop: Edwart Chocolatier's private atelier will open its doors for us so we can have fun making delicious chocolates and pairing them with champagnes. 
     
  • 50 Shades of Pink: You will learn about the two different methods for making rosé champagne and I will give you the tools to figure which type of rosé champagne you prefer and why.
     
  • Yoga and Champagne: one hour of Vinyassa yoga followed by one hour of champagne-tasting.

 

Excursions

I can either accompany you as a guide, or just organise the program and all the logistics. Cost will depend on number of participants and program.

Here are some of my most popular excursions that of course include tastings:
