Pierre Fresne and his wife Daniella’s blending workshop at their champagne house, Fresne Ducret, is a ‘real hands’ on experience, making your own unique champagne!

The morning starts with an insight into all aspects of champagne making; the pressing process, fermentation, the difference between cuvée and taille, why the wines are separated into different tanks and cuves etc.

Pierre will then provide a tutored tasting of base wines including: Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, reserve wines, barrel-aged wines and red wines for rosé blends. He will discuss the elements that each variable contributes to a blend.

Then you will be able to create your own blend – a non-vintage, vintage or rosé blend from the base wines tasted earlier.   This will be followed by a delicious 3-course lunch, accompanied of course by champagne!

£110 (including lunch & champagne!)  Book early as this event is restricted to 18 people and is very popular!
