Event description
From the amazing lineup of 14 wines, you'll taste a wide range of high quality sparkling wines made by different methods.

About this Event

Italy’s vast array of quality sparkling wines extend well beyond just Prosecco, Franciacorta or Moscato Bianco. But it can be confusing to differentiate between them all and hard to find examples in HK. In this 2.5 hrs masterclass, our VIA Italian Wine Ambassador and Certified Italian Wine Educator, Justin Chen, will guide you through the diversified world of Italian Bollicine (“bubbles” in Italian). From this amazing lineup of 14 wines, you’ll taste a wide range of high quality sparkling wines made by different methods (ancestrale, martinotti/charmat and traditional/champagne) and using different grape varieties (international and native). Some are totally unique – we guarantee you’ll taste something new… and that you’ll be surprised by their excellent quality and diverse and distinctive characters. Plus, we will, for the first time, disgorge a sparkling wine on site in our class! Bubbles make the world brighter – so let’s explore, taste and toast to a brighter future!

Highlights

  1. Vintage Franciacorta from two historical family producers located in the heart of the production zone. This allows you to taste the two very popular styles of Franciacorta (Satèn and Pas Dose);
  2. Top quality TrentoDoc classic method sparkling wine aged “sur lie” for 5 years. This wine is not available in Hong Kong, but thanks to our generous sponsor, we are the first to taste it in Hong Kong!
  3. Beautiful Lambrusco di Sorbara Frizzante (lightly sparkling) made by the ancestral method. This wine was ranked 18th in Wine Enthusiast 100 Best Wines of 2019 with 95 points;
  4. Legendary Movia Puro which will be disgorged on site!
