Taste Champagne London Update

The ongoing uncertainty surrounding the duration of lockdowns, travel bans and mass events has led us to make the difficult and regretful decision to postpone
Taste Champagne London 2020 to 16 November 2021.

All registered trade & media will be automatically carried over to the new date. We will be in touch later on in the year to confirm your registration.

The impact of coronavirus on champagne is particularly acute as a luxury and celebratory product, making this a tough year for every grower, house and importer. We are resolutely committed to bringing Taste Champagne back stronger than ever, to reconnect you with champagne and its stories and people. Your support means everything to them and to us. Champagne is the beverage of celebration, and goodness knows we’ll all have more reason than ever to celebrate when we finally come through this!

As a representative of one of the houses said to us recently, “Be sure that on our side we keep corks ready to pop and we pile up a huge inventory of love and happiness to spread on a recovering world!” Bring on that day!

Any queries please contact Jody Rolfe, Event Manager, jodyrolfe@winepress.com.au

It’s our great pleasure to invite you to join us as we bring
the biggest global champagne showcase back to London!

Registrations are now open and places are strictly limited.

Without doubt the most impressive
champagne tasting to be staged in London.

The finest generic tasting of champagne
the capital has seen for some time.

Hot on the heels of the resounding success of the inaugural Taste Champagne London 2019, professional wine trade & media are invited to an even bigger and better Taste Champagne!

Over the past seven years, Taste Champagne has exploded into the biggest global champagne showcase in the world,
hosted by Tyson Stelzer, author of The Champagne Guide and International Wine & Spirit Communicator of the Year.

Coming to you on 16 November 2021, Taste Champagne is a grand tasting in which you are invited to stroll at your own pace between houses, growers and cooperatives,
tasting their cuvées and discovering their stories from their chef de caves, brand ambassadors and importing agents.
