Join us for a celebration of world-class Tasmanian Sparkling! Now in it’s sixth year, Effervescence Tasmania has emerged as the pre-eminent Sparkling Wine event in Australia. Sample the island’s finest at the Grand Tasting, indulge in a Long Lunch, benchmark Tasmanian excellence against the world’s best in a Sparkling Masterclass, and dance the night away at Bubbles & Beats.
The first known Australian Sparkling was produced in Tasmania from the 1826 vintage. Today, around half of the island’s Pinot Noir and three quarters of its Chardonnay are highly prized for Sparkling Wine, with several specialist Sparkling houses and their wines winning international acclaim. Effervescence Tasmania is your chance to experience the best of the best in one extraordinary showcase.
