Melissa Brauer is a natural born entertainer and wine educator who loves sharing her passion with others. Take a journey with her as you sip and savour each sparkling wine while she unravels its origins, production method, grape variety and characteristics. Wines are expertly paired with highlights from Epocha’s modern European kitchen. Step outside your comfort zone and explore the wide world of sparkling for a long lunch you won't forget.
