Gourmet Escape 2017
The Margaret River Gourmet Escape returns for 2017 …
Now in its fourth year and already described as one of the world’s best sparkling wine festivals, Effervescence Tasmania returns on 16th -19th November 2017 to delight lovers of fine sparkling wine.
Boasting a world-class program of events expected to sell out as in previous years, Effervescence Tasmania will celebrate the New World’s best sparkling wines across a long weekend of luxury and indulgence. With almost 1000 guests participating in 2016, Effervescence Tasmania is rapidly developing a cult-following of sparkling wine enthusiasts from around Australia.
Having amassed 80 Hats to his name, acclaimed Chef Jacques Reymond will delight the senses with a Sunday Degustation Lunch at Josef Chromy Wines, presented by the Porsche Centre Hobart who will also showcase their luxury vehicles. Sunday also affords the opportunity to take brunch with Jansz’s Louisa Rose and visit accomplished sparkling producers in the Pipers River region of northern Tasmania.
Multi-award winning wine writer, television presenter and international speaker, Tyson Stelzer, will deliver his definitive Tasmanian Sparkling Masterclass. Stelzer is Australia’s pre-eminent authority on sparkling wine, authoring The Champagne Guide and providing the sparkling reviews for James Halliday’s Australian Wine Companion. In a first for Effervescence Tasmania, Stelzer will deliver a second masterclass focusing on Tasmanian sparkling wine within the global context.
Across the weekend, wine from Tasmania’s great sparkling houses will be presented, sampled and sold in the beautiful grounds of Josef Chromy Wines. Food and wine pairing will be the focus of masterclasses with Bruny Island Cheese and Huon Aquaculture. Intimate ‘Ferment’ sessions will have guests up close and personal with Tasmanian sparkling winemakers to ask questions and share stories. Art of Sparkling tours will offer entry into the Josef Chromy winery to see sparkling wine being disgorged and blended.
At the centre of the festivities is 'The Grand Tasting' described as 'a decadent garden party like no other'...
With the top Tasmanian Sparkling Wine Houses presenting, tasting, and selling their wines in the beautiful grounds of Josef Chromy Wines, this will be the greatest tasting of Tasmanian Sparkling Wines open to the public. Combine this with some of Tasmania's famous produce, music, friends and idyllic vistas; you'll have one hedonistic afternoon.
