Would you like to learn more about the wonderful range of Sparkling Wines from Italy? Do you like Prosecco, Italy’s most famous Sparkling Wine, but want to know more about it? Have you ever tried any of the other Sparkling wines from this wonderful and varied wine producing coutnry?
Join us this September for our Italian Sparkling Wine Showcase followed by a delicious 3-course lunch at one of Manchester’s premier Italian restaurants, San Carlo Fumo?
Prosecco is a hugely popular fizz from the North-East Italy, which has become synonymous with celebration, joy, special occasion and that most sought after symbol of Italy 'La Dolce Vita' (The good life). Have you ever tried a Franciacorta this high quality sparkling wine is from a small area in Lombardy, northern Italy and are made very much in the image of Champagne. What about a Moscato wine? famous for its sweet flavors of peaches and orange blossom, this low alcohol fizz is something different to enjoy at the end of a meal, or whenever you like!
Our Saturday wine tasting in Manchester City Centre will showcase some of the finest Italian Sparking Wines, imported from Italy by Con Gusto UK Ltd.
We shall spend a fun-filled couple of hours trying at least 6 different premium Sparkling WInes. Wines with lots of delicate fruit, from Spumante (lots of bubbles) through to Frizzante (slightly sparkling) and at various sweetness levels.
We’ll also hear from Peter (the owner of Con Gusto) who with his Italian heritage, will share stories about the vineyards, passionate wine makers, and the individual characteristics of each wine.
