Calling all lovers of sparkling wine.

The 2019 Effervescence festival in Tasmania is bigger and better than ever with a range of spin-off events in Hobart and at northern Tasmanian vineyards.

Now in its sixth year, Effervescence Tasmania has emerged as the pre-eminent sparkling wine event in Australia.

There are several new events on the program, taking in the north, south and east of the state.

The next day sees a Tour the Derwent from Hobart to Stefano Lubiana Wines in the comfort

Automobiles Hobart. This includes a private vintage wine tasting tour, hosted by Steve Lubiana, before a gastronomic lunch in Osteria Restaurant.
