Enjoy Tasmania's best bubbles over one indulgent weekend

Tasmania continues to grow its reputation for world-class sparkling wines - and the Effervescence Tasmania festival is a chance to try many of them over one indulgent weekend. 

The sparkling wine festival in northern Tasmania returns from November 10-12 and is now in its ninth year. 

The three days of events offer guests an array of opportunities to connect with the people who grow and make these wines, often with views of the vineyards from which the grapes are sourced. 

“Regional events such as Effervescence Tasmania are so important in creating unforgettable experiences for visitors to our state," says Sarah Clark, CEO of Tourism Tasmania. 

"By weaving together some of our world-class sparkling wines and produce against a picturesque backdrop, Effervescence further enhances Tasmania's reputation as a premier food and wine destination, contributing to our state’s reputation as a must-visit for discerning travellers.” 

Jane Thomson OAM, the founder of The Fabulous Ladies’ Wine Society and Australian Women in Wine, will be this year’s Gala Dinner keynote speaker.

“Tasmanian sparkling wines have long been a quiet favourite of those in the know," she says. "Led by some incredibly talented winemakers and the perfect cool-climate, the region confidently knocks at the door of the world’s best. E

"Effervescence is the perfect opportunity to shine a deserved spotlight and celebrate Tasmania’s sparkling success.” 

A second sparkling dinner, hosted by Wine Truth’s Loic Le Calvez, will be held at Timbre, north of Launceston, on the Friday night.

Highlights of the 2023 program include The Grand Tasting, a public tasting event at Josef Chromy Wines that will showcase over 50 wines from 15 of Tasmania’s best sparkling producers. 

Guests can also enjoy two educational wine masterclasses; Tasmanian Sparkling and International Sparkling, while Bubbles and Beats featuring DJ Damien Goundrie will round out the Saturday program.

The cellar doors of Jansz Tasmania, Clover Hill, Small Wonder and Josef Chromy Wines will host tours and masterclasses throughout the weekend.
