With Mary Kirk
Tuesday Oct 16 2012


After giving you a brief overview of the Champagne region, Mary will share her experiences on how to best tour this mythical wine region. To fully appreciate this unique bubbly wine, it is helpful to come here and experience a walk through vineyards, feel pieces of the chalky soil and observe the hillsides around filled with vines.

Meandering through the chalk aging cellars as well as meeting the different actors, from independent grower-producers to the well-known Champagne houses, are also experiences that help broaden ones understanding of this famous wine region. What you can expect, sites you shouldn't miss and guidelines on how to best benefit from your time travelling in Champagne will be discussed during this session.
