Annual Champagne Tasting at The Elderberry House
Champagne is one of the most remarkable wines in the world. The team at Château du Sureau and The Elderberry House enjoys it so much that every year they host a special tasting dedicated to bubbles, highlighting various flavor profiles and regions. Sommeliers Erica Ruiz and Jonathan Rosenson sorted through hundreds of champagnes to pick the perfect eight champagnes to sample. The tasting is accompanied by a host of light hors d’oeuvres that pair perfectly for the afternoon. The festivities take place at The Elderberry House’s outdoor courtyard.
