with Master of Wine Peter Marks

Live Webinar 


How well do you know Champagne?

Known globally for its winemaking method, terroir, and prestige, Champagne delights all of our senses. Most wine drinkers know about the main styles of Brut and Rosé, but there is so much more to learn and to enjoy. 

Tour the unique growing areas of Champagne, the grape varieties and winemaking techniques with Peter Marks MW to gain a deeper understanding of the exceptional styles in this master-level class. Learn more about the types of producers in the Champagne region, how to decipher the styles and producers on the labels, and the aroma and flavor characteristics. You will have the opportunity to taste along with us three delicious wines from a grower, a house, and a coop as you begin your mastery of Champagne.
