Champagne Challenge

7 PM - 9 PM

SATURDAY | NOVEMBER 16th

The Arts District, Downtown, Los Angeles


Champagne - you can never get too much champagne. We taste 22 of them (*when sold out) for this program. How is Champagne made - about some of the best in the business - this is a collection of top efforts, some we taste blind, and some we experience and discuss the style... because they are smaller producers with unique attributes.
