Taste Champagne – Public Tasting Evenings Champagne Philipponnat at Tyson Stelzer Taste Champagne event

Australia’s biggest and most exclusive champagne showcase series,  Taste Champagne, was expanded to six events in three cities this year. The sold out event showcased 50 champagne houses and up to 158 cuvées, including Champagne Philipponnat, available proudly though Arquilla.

World renowned for their fresh, distinctive and full-bodied structure, Champagne Philipponnat is a natural pairing with Taste Champagne. From the flagship Brut Royale Réserve to the connoisseur's choice, Clos des Goisses, event-goers were given a unique tasting opportunity from this prestigious Champagne house.

Now in its third year, the event has gained momentum with six events this August, hosting in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane for the first time.

This year’s events also saw the unveiling of six new Vintage Cellars Prestige Champagne Masterclasses. With personal tutoring from internationally renowned wine expert Tyson Stelzer, the masterclasses walked guests through a structured tasting of six of Champagne’s finest cuvées matched to canapés.

The festival offers the chance for guests to stroll between stalls of some of the worlds best champagne houses, growers and cooperatives, learning directly from their importing agents and most importantly, stopping for tastings.

Recent Australian sales figures show champagne’s popularity is growing faster here than anywhere else in the world.  A universal symbol for luxury, romance, and success, it’s no wonder we choose to celebrate our greatest moments and milestones by adding a little sparkling.
