What does our tasting look like?
Let’s explain this with one of our most successful products – the champagne tasting.
It is an experience, during which we offer our guests :
- four different blends of champagne;
- matching food pairing;
- journey into the winemaking tradition and tips;
- live Jazz/Bossa Nova (optional);
- unique location (optional).
All our tastings are designed for both: advanced champagne & wine enthusiasts and beginners. We carefully select the most exceptional wines from the smaller, less-known producers to please and surprise our customers.
Why High-End Tasting events?
The festivity, relaxation, and sense of community that usually accompanies moderate drinking with a group, became for many the enjoyments of life. At the same time we truly believe in smart consumption and trying to introduce our guests to the new perspective on alcohol in general and wines in particular. The products we use and the artists we work with are part of our culture we can be proud of and should protect. We focus on wines and champagnes from the smaller brands to counter the growth of just a few big companies, by which we might run the risk of losing the identity of many regions. And we don’t want to live in a world, with too many similar tastes, right?
With the smaller champagne houses, you more often meet with independent, original and sustainable winemakers. They exclusively create their champagnes with the grapes of their own vineyard and fully control the entire production process. However, it’s good to see that larger brands also start focusing again more on terroir, increasingly offer limited-edition champagnes, and innovate on winemaking and vineyard mapping.
Another thing worth mentioning is that the price range for tasting extraordinary champagne with the smaller champagne house is way more attractive. This lowers the threshold to purchase. And based on our experience in the field, we know that the label does not always mean the quality. So thinking a bit outside the box might be very impressive.
Onwards to a Bright Future.
Despite the pandemic, the number of champagne shipments has increased. So more people worldwide are choosing champagne, and not just as a festive drink, but as something that can be also enjoyed in a daily life. Especially here in the Netherlands, where we are based, we see an enormous potential to increase this trend. And we already have a couple of ideas on how to do this. Recently we’ve launched our www.highendchampagne.com online store, as our customers were asking for selling champagne per bottle with easily understandable categories. Also, concerning moderating drinking through a growing awareness to live healthier, it’s nice to keep in mind that quality matters. Because you deserve it. And while you’re doing it, you’d better make it in style. Finally, high-end products often derive from long traditions. They always managed to find a way to succeed, even during the most difficult times. That’s why we see a bright future ahead if we stay focused and work hard on selecting high-quality products and services.
Cheers and looking forward to meeting you soon!
