5 - 7 November 2021, Josef Chromy Wines
Tasmania’s finest sparkling houses will once again come together to showcase their best cuvées at the Effervescence Tasmania sparkling wine festival from 5-7 November. Now in its seventh year, Effervescence Tasmania brings guests to Northern Tasmania with the opportunity to sample over 50 sparkling wines from around Tasmania, poured by the people who grow and make them.
Multi-award-winning wine writer, television host and international sparkling authority Tyson Stelzer, recently appointed as the new editor of the Halliday Wine Companion, will host the Tasmanian Sparkling Wine Dinner and ever-popular sparkling masterclasses as part of the 2021 program. A second sparkling dinner, hosted by Wine Truth’s Loic Le Calvez, will be held at Timbre, north of Launceston.
Highlights of the 2021 program include The Grand Tasting, a public tasting event at Josef Chromy Wines on Saturday 6 November showcasing over 50 cuvées from fourteen of Tasmania’s best sparkling producers. The popular Bubbles and Beats sessions featuring DJ Damien Goundrie will round out the Saturday program. The cellar doors of the House of Arras, Clover Hill, The Ridge North Lilydale and Josef Chromy Wines will host an array of tours, masterclasses and even a mimosa and yoga session on Sunday 7 November.
Borders willing, Grapes of Mirth will return to Tasmania for their third showcase as part of Effervescence Tasmania. Comedian, newly-minted wine show judge and SAS Australia alumnus Merrick Watts will bring a stellar line up of Australian comedy talent to Josef Chromy Wines for an afternoon of comedy, sparkling wine and music.
With their comedians currently in NSW and Victoria, Grapes of Mirth organisers acknowledge that their event could be impacted by ongoing travel restrictions. Tickets to the Grapes of Mirth event will go on sale at a later date to provide greater certainty, however those interested are welcome to register now.
