A sunny day in May in lockdown 2020, we were gifted the incredible all-encompassing Champagne encyclopedia: The Champagne Guide 20-21 by Tyson Stelzer. This was an annual birthday present for us that had certainly sparked a passion for wine journalism and literature. It was during this time we had seriously started planning and launching the business. In fact some of our first ever social media posts included quotes and photos from the book of which some of our producers where featured!
Two years later we find ourselves standing at the Royal Horticultural Halls in London presenting our portfolio as part of the Taste Champagne exhibition, the biggest global Champagne showcase, hosted by Tyson Stelzer himself. A great moment to reflect on our journey so far!
On 16th April we were delighted to be able to showcase some of our amazing Grower Champagnes at the prestigious Taste Champagne Show London 2022. It was our first ever in person large scale exhibition and was a pleasure to share our wines with over 250 members of the trade and media and over 350 members of the public!
We were thrilled to have a few of our winemakers join us in London too. Attendees had the pleasure of tasting wines with Alexandre Salmon from Champagne Salmon, Julien and Guillaume Henin from Champagne Henin-Delouvin and Laurianne Lejour from Champagne Laurianne Lejour.
The feedback gained from the trade, media and public was superb! We showcased 24 Champagnes from 8 of our producers. Thank you to Tyson, Jody, Sensible Wine Services and the rest of the Taste Champagne team for hosting a tremendous event! Bring on 2023!
