An Incredible Tasting of Top Grower Champagnes
Join us as we taste some incredible Grower Champagnes!
Individual growers that have decided against selling their “juice” to the big Champagne houses and that have opted to make their own Champagne, call them Grower Champagnes. Since only 5% of the Champagne imported into the US is Growers Champagne, it’s scarce… hard-to-come by. Most people will never have the opportunity to purchase any because they just aren’t found in most retail stores.
Why should you drink them? You should drink them if you’d rather have a wine expressive of vineyard, and the grower’s own connection to vineyard than a wine “formed’ by the mega-conglomerate Champagne Houses whose main goal is to make their Champagnes taste exactly the same. You should drink Grower Champagne if the individual distinctive flavors of terroir driven wines matter to you. You should drink them because they’re made by vintners – by a “him or her” not an “it”… because it’s better to buy a wine from a person than a company. You should drink them because their price is based on what it costs to produce, not manipulated to account for massive PR and ad budgets. You should drink them because you like the vineyards’ stories and you like something different, and serving something different and unusual to your friends and family. We can’t stress enough how special this tasting will be. Bring your significant other or friends, but register in advance as this event will fill!
