We will be tasting four wines:

IL MONTICINO PIGNOLETTO FRIZZANTE
Soft but with good body, characterized by the typical lightly bitterish aftertaste. It goes well with savory and structured hors d’oeuvre, as well as first dishes, or simple and light white meat, and lightly savory cheese.

CREMANT TOQUES ET CLOCHER
Made from a blend of Chardonnay, Chenin and Mauzac, this crémant or sparkling wine is the product of grapes carefully selected at each step of production.

‘RGL’ RIBOLLA GIALLA SPUMANTE
This wine is made using the same methods as Moscato d’Asti, except not so fast! The wine is then aged on lees until it is deemed to be ready, very much like the process used in some high end Prosecco.

RONDEAU BUGEY CERDON
The tiny French town of Cerdon is very close to the Swiss border in a little-known VDQS called Bugey. The wine is sparkling rosé, but not just any sparkling rosé.
