Sparkling Wine Tasting Workshop with Dr Amie Brûlée

19/11/2021 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Discover the secrets of sparkling wine with a tasting workshop at the Ballaarat Mechanics’ Institute with Amie Brûlée, Doctor of Wine.

We’ll take you and your taste buds through a range of sparkling wines – including Champagne, Cava, Prosecco, and Australian sparkling – explaining the difference between the styles. You’ll learn about the history, production methods, varieties, food and wine pairing, and most importantly, tasting.

The perfect way to start the weekend!

Amie Brûlée, otherwise known as Dr Amie Sexton, has a PhD in wine, is an experienced and engaging teacher, and has a quite a passion for fermented beverages. Over the years she has lived and worked in wine in Bordeaux (France), taught wine history and tasting at The University of Melbourne, and shared her love of wine in many workshops, presentations and performances.
