We will be delighted to deliver Searcys English Sparkling Masterclass. It will be hosted by Searcys Drinks Ambassador Joel Claustre MCA.
With English sparkling wine growing rapidly both in quality and popularity, we have designed this masterclass as an introduction to this exciting category. We are passionate about English sparkling wine and we are thrilled to share our love with you. Wine grapes have been grown on British soil for over 1,600 years. Though it is debated as to whether they bought vines to the United Kingdom, the Romans wrote about growing wine grapes in Britain in the 1 century AD. There are now over 700 vineyards across England and 68% of the produced wine is sparkling. Informative, inspiring and fun, our Champagne School masterclass is designed to appeal to all kinds of wine lovers – from absolute beginners to accomplished connoisseurs.
Joel Claustre is both Drinks Ambassador and Account Director for Searcys, and has been instrumental in developing the Champagne and beverage offering . In keeping with Searcys’ pledges for sustainability and locally-sourced produce, Joel has been championing English sparkling wines alongside Champagnes, allowing guests to discover the delights of Nyetimber from Kent, Greyfriars from Surrey and Furleigh Estate from Dorset.
