From traditional method styles made from the classic trio of grapes, to Australia’s own iconic red bubbles – sparkling Shiraz – the sparkling wine category in Australia is incredibly diverse and dynamic.
Join Emma Symington MW as she leads you through a range of Australia’s key sparkling wine styles, covering traditional method wines made in cool climate regions like Tasmania, as well as up-and-coming styles such as Moscato, Prosecco-like wines, Pet Nat and sparkling Shiraz. You will also explore some of the key regions producing sparkling wine and the various winemaking techniques producers use to create the different styles.
