The Inside Out of Sparkling Wine

  • Mac Wine Cellars 2726 North Killingsworth Street Portland, OR, 97217 United States (map)

This is Sunday School’s classic class on all things bubbly! You’ll learn where the bubbles actually come from, the distinctions between the different types of sparkling (Cava, Prosecco, Pet Nat etc.) and why Champagne makers were once forced to wear armor in the cellar.

We’ll also debunk a few myths about Dom Perignon and see how a French widow revolutionized Champagne making. Our tasting flight will get you up to speed on all the styles of fizz, including one using a method from ancient times, and you’ll leave knowing how to shop for and buy the bubbly that suits you best, in other words, a full-on bubbly pro.

Tip: If you’ve never been to Mac Wine Cellars, it’s a super cute bottle shop on N Killingsworth and Greeley that you should definitely check out. As the ultimate bonus, La Bonita is next door. What is better than a post-work, pre-bubbly-class burrito? Answer: nothing.
