Global kudos for sparkling wines

Another ringing endorsement for Tasmania’s world-class sparkling wines. One of France’s most respected champagne authorities has proclaimed our bubbly offerings to be amongst the best anywhere. Fourth generation French champagne maker, Cyril Brun, Chef de Caves for Charles Heidsieck, has likened our sparkling wines to those of the great champagne houses. During a recent visit to Tasmania, he told The Mercury: “Every time I taste the sparkling wine from Tasmania I feel like it is the one that could be potentially the closest to champagne.” About one third of all wine made in Tasmania is sparkling. The local industry is also booming, with latest figures estimating it is now worth $100 million to the local economy each year. Another $15.2 million is also generated by wine-related tourism.
