Members and Guests are invited to a luxe Champagne Gosset Masterclass presented by Bertrand Verduzier.

For over four centuries, great care has been taken to preserve a family know-how in the making of Grosset wines in Champagne. In 1584, Pierre Gosset, alderman of Aÿ and wide-grower made still wines, mostly red, with the grapes he harvested from his own vibes. In those days, two wines vied for pride of place at the table of the Kings of France: the wine of Aÿ and, from several hundreds of leagues further south, the wines of Beaune. Both were made from the same grape varieties Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Then, in the 18th century, the wines made in and around Aÿ began to bubble.

Bertrand is the founder of Parasol Wines, a portfolio of crafted and independent wineries from various appellations, including Loire; Roussillon; Provence; Piemont; Burgundy and of course Champagne, directed to export markets such as UK, USA, Belgium. Bertrand has been a judge at the International Wine Challenge since 2006.
