Our Blanc de Blancs masterclass is a wonderful opportunity to taste, compare and enjoy our award-winning sparkling from a range of vintages. This event, which includes rare releases such as our limited-edition single-vineyard wines, will be hosted by our Global Ambassador Laura Rhys, Master Sommelier.
On arrival, we’ll welcome you to the Hide, our cosy tasting room, with an aperitif. You’ll then sit down for the masterclass, as Laura guides you through a flight of Gusbourne Blanc de Blancs. The line-up includes an expressive, cellar-aged 2013; our Chief Winemaker’s personal favourite from 2016, and our complex Oak Aged Blanc de Blancs. You’ll be able to compare vintages side by side, gaining an insight into how vineyard conditions influence a wine. Laura will also explain the effect of bottle ageing and how to lay down bottles at home.
A seasonal, three-course lunch, carefully paired with our fine wines, will follow your masterclass.
The event begins at 12 noon. We expect to be concluded by 3pm, but please feel free to enjoy a late-afternoon stroll through the vineyards if you wish. We recommend making any taxi arrangements in advance.
