2022 Bubbles & Rosé Tasting
June 11 at 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Join us on June 11th for our first Bubbles & Rosé Tasting. We’ll be offering a limited VIP Session Ticket (2pm – 5pm) where 100 VIPs will be able to explore the tasting floor as wineries put forward their best sparkling wines and rosés to help usher in the summer season. After an hour of tasting, join Patrick Suleski, the sommelier and Beverage Director at Lock 50, as he explains the differences with sparkling wine as you experience how Prosecco, cava, and Champagne taste alongside oysters, shrimp, fried chicken, caviar, and chocolate. This sit down educational session will be on the warning track directly on the field!
The General Admission ticket (3pm – 5pm) will grant you access to the tasting floor where you can explore all of the bubbles and rosés available. Food will be available for purchase from Polar Park concession stands.
What says “celebration” more than sabering your own sparkling wine? When Napoleon’s armies found success across Europe, his Hussar cavalry would slice the tops off of bottles of Champagne with their sabers to kick off their victory celebrations – it’s even said that the widow Clicquot, of Veuve Clicquot fame, inspired the practice by giving complimentary bottles to aristocratic officers as they rode past her vineyards, and who would promptly slice them open in an attempt to impress the wealthy, young heiress. In the years since, sabrage has become the most eye-catching way to open a bottle of bubbly – and we’re going to show you how! For $50 you’ll have your own experience in celebrating sparkling with for a good cause—100% of the proceeds for this will benefit the WooSox Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the Worcester Red Sox.
