The return of face-to-face events has been a key part of the new normal. Even with the advantages of digitalisation and the success of online events, face-to-face training is always a valued way to share the experience. This is even more true of a tasting that offers an intense experience, when knowledge is shared around a glass of wine.
As part of Cava Discovery Week in the United Kingdom, on 18 October, the renowned West London Wine School hosted a fantastic face-to-face tasting of the Cava Designation of Origin.
A group of wine-loving consumers were treated to a selection of nine premium Cavas from one of the UK's leading wine educators, Jimmy Smith.
"It has been fantastic to return to face-to-face classes after a while, and even more so at a special evening with D.O. Cava at the West London Wine School. Respecting all health regulations, we thoroughly enjoyed this high-level Cava tasting, highlighting the exceptional quality of this Designation of Origin," explains Jimmy.
Accompanied by a tasting of typical Spanish tapas (croquettes, ham, Manchego cheese, and a selection of cured meats), the end consumers attending this presentation were not only able to learn about Cava, but also about its great versatility with any ingredient or dish.
Alta Alella, Bodegas Faustino, Codorníu, Juvé & Camps, Maset, Parés Baltà, Roger Goulart, Vallformosa and Vilarnau were the stars of the evening. The high quality of the Cava was evident from the attendees’ response:
“I was fascinated to see the progression of the different types of Cava, as well as discovering and tasting the different varieties of grapes in the Cavas.”
