Trade and Media Tastings

Taste Champagne Australia – Returning Late 2021

We are pleased to announce new dates for Taste Champagne Australia following the Covid postponements of August 2021.

Capacity limitations dictate numbers, hence trade passes for each venue are allocated on a first-in basis. Sydney and Adelaide guests have the choice of two sessions. 

Registrations are now open.

Any queries please contact Jody Rolfe, Event Manager, jodyrolfe@winepress.com.au


Taste Champagne is back! We are delighted to invite you to join us as we reignite Taste Champagne in 2021. Off the back of the growth of the champagne market in Australia over the past year, this is the ultimate opportunity to reconnect with champagne’s top houses and growers and all their new cuvées.

Over the past seven years, Taste Champagne has exploded into the biggest global champagne showcase. In 2019 we welcomed more than 4,000 trade, media, agents and public in London, Hong Kong, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth. We are thrilled to announce that Taste Champagne is back in 2021!

Taste Champagne is a grand tasting in which guests are invited to stroll at their own pace between houses, growers and cooperatives. In 2021, Taste Champagne Australia is set to showcase 221 cuvées from 72 houses!

Coming your way in August 2021, Taste Champagne is hosted by Tyson Stelzer, International Wine & Spirit Communicator of the Year, in conjunction with BlackEvents.

Taste Champagne Trade & Media tastings are reserved exclusively for wine media, retail wine buyers and sommeliers.

If you are an exhibiting agent representing a champagne house at Taste Champagne, please don’t register here. Contact us to register as an agent.

It’s our great pleasure to invite you to join us in 2021 at the biggest global champagne showcase!
