Tasmanian Top Ten Sparkling Lunch 2021

It’s my great pleasure to invite you to join me and Tasmania’s top ten sparkling estates to share their best cuvées and their stories over lunch at Lumière Brisbane on Saturday 27 February 2021.

Tasmania has again shone as Australia’s hero sparkling state in my tastings, topping the charts by every measure. More than this, its cuvées have ascended to an all new level of finesse this year, and the top estates have released the finest cuvées they have ever produced.
