We got to meet the only person in the world to hold both the Master Sommelier and Advanced Certified Wine Professional credentials, in addition, she sabered the Champagne with a sword!!! She did so with panache and flair!!!
It was an evening filled with anticipation, excitement, deliciousness and satisfaction.
We got to taste 5 different sparkling wines and each glass accompanied with food that completely compliments each other which made our enjoyment to the next level.
We started off with popcorn with truffle salt and thyme. Wine of choice: Bortolotti Prosecco Superiore Extra Dry Valdobbiadene Veneto Italy, $15.99
Then we had mini crab cakes. Wine of choice: Dibon Cava Brute Reserve Vilafranca del Penedes Spain, $9.99
Next we had gruyere gougeres. Wine of choice: Rene Geoffroy Expression Premier Cru Brut Champagne France, $49.99
Then we had cornmeal blint with smoked salmon and crème fraiche. Wine of choice: Moncuit Cuvee Pierre Moncuit-Delos Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne France, $49.99
We finished off with cheese course. Wine of choice: Ayala Rose Majeur Brut Champagne France, $65.99
We love the packet they gave us which included all the wines we tasted and recipes for each dish. We are planning replicate a similar experience at the comfort of our home with our lovely friends and family!
