Understanding Champagne

  • Newport Wine Cellar & Gourmet 11-13 Memorial Boulevard Newport, RI, 02840 United States (map)

with Leigh Ranucci

complimentary! no rsvp required

With so many opportunities to pop open some bubbles in the coming weeks, I thought you might like to know what you are buying.  We will have open throughout the afternoon a number of different Champagnes for you to sample.  What makes bubbles from Champagne unique and worth the cost?  I have gotten that question so often, and there truly is a value in the sparkling wines from what is likely France's most well known region.  We will focus on grower's Champagnes, wines made by small independent growers who grow and use their own vines exclusively to make their wines.  Leigh Ranucci, of Wine Traditions, will be on hand to talk about Grower's Champagnes and the wide variety of styles that these wines can take. 

This is a buying opportunity!  You can stock up for the holidays, get some gifts bought, or just get some bubbles to enjoy yourself.

5% off all wines, 10% off 6-packs, 15% off full or mixed cases
