June 2 Annual Meeting and Sip-and-Learn Virtual Happy Hour

June 2, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Annual Membership Meeting and Sparkling Virtual Happy Hour
featuring an informal sip-and-learn on the nuances of bubbly beverages

Please join us as we elect Chapter officers and directors for 2020-2021. Following Chapter business, we will take a deep dive into the world of sparkling wine.  You will start by learning about the history of sparkling wine as well as the major methods of production and the styles they create.  We will then discuss some of the major sparkling wine denominations from around the world (including Prosecco, Cava, Franciacorta, California and Champagne) and what makes them unique from each other.  During the discussion of the different denominations, we will focus especially on Prosecco and Champagne, going a little bit deeper into these as they are the most popular sparkling wines in the US. Please feel free to pop a cork,or pour your favorite beverage and sip along! Featuring expert guidance from Italian wine consultant Tony Polzer.
