The Night They Invented Champagne: A Story of Deception, Seduction and Intrigue


Who really invented our favorite quaff? Many countries claim to have made the first sparkling wine. Was it really a Frenchman, or was it a Roman? Carolyn and Kevin Kourofsky, Certified Specialists of Wine, will take you on a delicious investigation of sparkling wines, tracking down the true history of our favorite beverage.


Learn why Champagne is the drink of love…and war. Consider a cava, speculate over sekt, compare a cremant, meet a moscato, and decide for yourself who does it best. We’ll study the cast of characters and reveal our choice for the true inventor…you may be surprised.


Registration begins at 6:30 PM.

Capacity is limited. Registration closes on Tuesday, December 5, 2017.
