Experts from Oregon, California and Champagne, France, will lead a one-day symposium for members of the wine industry who want to explore sparkling wine.

The workshop will cover the theories and economics behind sparkling wine production, as well as guide participants through a tasting of wines. By working through several sparkling wine examples, participants will review the climate, soils, sub-regions and winemaking process of sparking wine in an interactive format.
