Effervesence to sparkle one more time

Tasmania's leading sparkling wine festival returns in November 2021 after a brief period on ice. 

The finest sparkling houses on the Apple Isle will once again come together to showcase their best cuvées at the Effervescence Tasmania festival from November 5-7.

Now in its seventh year, Effervescence Tasmania offers guests 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 and international authority Tyson Stelzer will host the Tasmanian Sparkling Wine Dinner and sparkling masterclasses at Josef Chromy Wines as part of the 2021 program.

A second sparkling dinner, hosted by Wine Truth’s Loic Le Calvez, will be held at Timbre Kitchen at Velo Wines in Legana.

"Effervescence Tasmania has become a mainstay of the Tasmanian festival calendar, attracting and welcoming visitors from around Tasmania, interstate and, until Covid, from overseas,’ says Shaine de Venny, general manager of Josef Chromy Wines, the event organisers. 

"Although persistent travel restrictions will likely mean that not everyone who wants to attend will be able to, we’re putting everything in place to ensure that festivities will be safe and enjoyable for all. 

"Flexible cancellation policies will also take into account the evolving Covid situation."

Highlights of the 2021 program include The Grand Tasting, a public tasting event at Josef Chromy Wines on Saturday, November 6, showcasing over 50 cuvées from 14 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 a program of tours, masterclasses and even a mimosa and yoga session on Sunday, November 7. 
Borders willing, Grapes of Mirth will return to Tasmania for their third showcase as part of Effervescence Tasmania.

"The Effervescence Tasmania festival is even more special in 2021, with demand for Tasmanian sparkling remaining exceptionally high," says de Venny.

"Effervescence Tasmania is a great opportunity to sample wines that may not be available otherwise, and to get insider information on when the next release is available."

Tickets for Effervescence Tasmania go on sale on Wednesday and are available through the Effervescence Tasmania

Participating wine producers are Apogee Tasmania, Barringwood, Brook Eden, Brown FWG/Pirie, Clover Hill Wines, Delamere Vineyard, House of Arras, Jansz Tasmania, Josef Chromy Wines, Kreglinger Wine Estates/Pipers Brook, Moores Hill, Moorilla, Spring Vale and  The Ridge North Lilydale.
