Johanna Dayer, one of the few Swiss citizens to have studied at the prestigious Institute of Masters of Wine, has selected six Champagnes along with six effervescent wines from the rest of the world. She is offering blind tastings of famous and lesser-known sparkling wines. Will you be able to recognise each wine’s origin? Will the most famous labels be the most popular? This is an absolute must for lovers of more traditional methods.
