With the party season soon upon us, join The Auricle’s resident oenesthestic expert, Jo Burzynska for a tutored tasting of some of the most exciting sparkling wines available in the country today: from great local examples to European classics, such as Champagne with likely something new for everyone. She’ll also be exploring what music is best with bubbles and whether the right sounds can add more fizz to your experience.
Jo Burzynska is one of the country’s most widely read wine critics, writing a weekly wine column in the New Zealand Herald’s Viva magazine and is the author of Wine Class: All You Need to Know About Wine in New Zealand (Random House). She is also an active sound artist, recording and performing under the name Stanier Black-Five, whose work in recent years has increasingly combined her interests in music and wine in a series of multisensory performances and installations and wine and music matching workshops.
It’s not just Jo that’s been researching this area – Krug is now on the case! http://www.lepanmedia.com/the-art-of-pairing-champagne-and-music/
