Sometimes we don’t realise how lucky we are. We’ve got the world’s most important sparkling wine region right on our doorstep, and every year London plays host to the largest Champagne tasting. In the world.
This year’s event takes place at The Banqueting House in Whitehall. It’s where Charles I lost his head in 1649, but the Champagnes poured on March 13 will scarcely have time to do the same.
Here’s a short video of last year’s tasting and how it all came together. If you can spot yourself, award yourself three points and shout “hooray!” twice. If you want to register, you can use this link.
