Grower Champagne Odyssey with Robert Walters
Next Occurrence : 06 May 2022
Explore the revolutionary world of grower champagne in a masterclass set to feature the next generation of producers.
Champagne’s 15,800 growers have traditionally sold their grapes on to negociant houses and co-operatives for use by the esteemed brands we know and love. But change is afoot. Lines of responsibility have become increasingly blurred in recent decades as house purchases increase and additional vineyards assume grower responsibilities. More than 4,400 French growers now produce their own champagne – and it’s this brave new scene we’re ready to celebrate.
These are the ultimate terroir champagnes and have become the darlings of international sommeliers and collectors. Melbourne-based author, importer and winemaker Robert Walters will lead this Friday evening masterclass, sharing insights gleaned from more than 15 years in the trade. His Bibendum Wine Co. represents an extensive range of champagnes sourced from producers you’ll be delighted to discover. French fizz fans: this one is calling your name.
Walters has clear views on the world of Champagne. Expect deep insights, strong opinions and Champagne from producers including Ulysse Collin, Agrapart, Larmandier-Bernier, Laherte Frères, Egly-Ouriet and Jérôme Prévost.
