Hotel Almhof Schneider

The most exclusive Champagne event of the year. Limited to 20 top sommeliers from Germany, Switzerland, Alto Adige and, of course, Austria's Arlberg mountain with its numerous top hotels and restaurants.

This year, the Champagne Academy is all about Champagne and food pairings.

The great strength of Champagne, apart from its ability to put people in a very special, indulgent mood, is its exceptional class as a food companion, for everything from starred cuisine and hearty dishes to pub food. Many Champagnes are extremely good all-rounders. Nevertheless, there are some combinations that work particularly well, such as Rosé Champagne and tomato. Blanc de Noirs and mushroom dishes. Chardonnay-based Champagne with fish, beurre blanc and cabbage. The list is long...

Two contrasting Champagnes from each category, from Rosé to Blanc de Blancs, Blanc de Noirs and classic assemblages, will be served with small plates from the Almhof Schneider kitchen.

Moderation: Sascha Speicher, editor-in-chief of Meiningers Sommelier and Christian Josephi, representative of Comité Champagne for Germany & Austria.

With parents who were wine traders and restauranteurs, her love for wine began at an early age. However, Franziska took a different direction after graduating from high school, studying illustration and later advertising design. Wine+Partners offered the opportunity of reuniting these two passions. She is not only involved in the agency’s graphic design but jumps in to support numerous other projects.
