Taste Champagne 2016



On August 15th we participated in Taste Champagne 2016 an exclusive champagne event held in Sydney at The Four Seasons Hotel for media, trade and the public. This is one of three events showcasing 158 cuvées from 50 Champagne Houses, growers and cooperatives.

The event was expertly put together by Styson Telzer and his team. Tyson is International Wine & Spirit Communicator of the Year 2015, Australian Wine Communicator of the Year 2015, Australian Wine Communicator of the Year 2013, and International Champagne Writer of the Year 2011. He wrote The Champagne Guide 2016-2017 which is out now in hardback and ebook.

We proudly presented our popular Achille Princier Grower Champagne and gave a sneak peak of a new marque about to arrive in Australia- Jeeper
