Tyson Stelzer’s Introduction to Champagne Lunch – 4 March 2023

Tyson Stelzer’s Introduction to Champagne Lunch is the ultimate way to get under the surface of the bubbles and discover an all new appreciation for the greatest sparkling wines on the planet!

Champagne is the most exciting and progressive wine region on earth right now – and the best way to demystify the complexity of its vineyards, production, cellars and styles is through tasting!

Whether you know a little already and want to learn more, or just love drinking champagne, Tyson will guide you through a tasting journey to discover ten of his favourite champagne houses and growers, the role of each of the three grape varieties in the blends and the full spectrum of styles including brut nature, rosé and oak fermented.

Following each flight, you will explore champagne and food matching with four courses prepared by the team at Bisou Bisou.

Creator of the Advanced Champagne Certificate (a finalist in the running for this year’s Wine Educator of the Year), Tyson Stelzer is the winner of International Champagne Writer of the Year and International Wine Communicator of the Year.

Not at all intimidating! Novice and more experienced wine lovers were catered for. It was unpretentious and made wine tasting accessible and enjoyable! – Sarah (attendee)
