The bubblies continue to flow this week!  Take a break from all your holiday shopping and enjoy the festivities!


Thurs. Dec. 16:  FPWM Champagne Class (Embarcadero)

Ferry Plaza Wine Merchants
Port Comission Hearing Room
2nd Floor, Ferry Building
San Francisco, CA

6:30pm – 8:30pm – pricing $65

“Demystifying Champagne and Sparkling Wine.”  Champagne? Cava? Prosecco? Cremant? Sparkling wine? These are all wines with bubbles, but have you ever wondered how they differ? And why is Champagne usually so much more expensive than its bubbly brethren? We are here to help, and although this class is timed perfectly for the holidays, part of our message is that good sparkling wine, in whatever form, isn’t just for celebrations.

See our bubbles post.
