Exclusive Prosecco Tasting at San Carlo Fumo

Exclusive Prosecco Tasting at San Carlo Fumo

Fancy learning more about Prosecco, Italy’s most famous Sparkling Wine, followed by a wonderful 3-course lunch at one of Manchester’s premier Italian restaurants, San Carlo Fumo?

This hugely popular fizz of North-East Italy has become synonymous with celebration, joy, special occasion and that most sought after symbol of Italy 'La Dolce Vita' (The good life).

Our Saturday wine tasting in Manchester City Centre will showcase some of the finest Prosecco imported to the North West from the main producing towns of Valdobbiadene and Conegliano by Con Gusto UK Ltd.

We shall spend a fun-filled couple of hours trying at least 6 different premium Prosecco styles.  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.

Here are some examples of Proseccos we have tried at such an event in the past, As you can see you can expect a fantastic variety of flavour and styles.

  • Domus Picta Treviso DOC - A classic Prosecco perfect by the glass, by the bottle or in cocktails
  • Domus Picta Rosé Cuvee - a rosé Prosecco blended with two local grape varieties – Glera and Raboso Piave
  • Ca Salina DOCG Extra Dry - a sweeter ,celebration style drink
  • Ca Salina DOCG Brut Rivete - closest match to Champagne
  • Cirotto Extra Dry - Prosecco at its best, the way the Italians drink it!
  • Ca Salina Incrocio Manzoni - dry rosé wine, a perfect match for fish dishes
  • Ca Salina DOCG Dry Paradiso - a Prosecco for celebrations, especially Christmas

Lunch shall also be served upstairs in the opulent extra dining space with a view into the kitchens through a striking window.  Expertly prepared by the award winning chefs at San Carlo Fumo. 

Taking place in Manchester City Centre the day before Mother's Day (Sunday 11th March) this event would make a wonderful Mother's Day Gift, We can provide a Gift Voucher for the event, just book your places below and use the "contact us" link on your confirmation to let us know.
