Event more than a thought bub­ble

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Wine - With John Jens

CHAM­PAGNE lovers, you are on no­tice.

Tyson Stelzer, the leg­endary worka­holic wine and cham­pagne au­thor and con­nois­seur, is bring­ing his Taste Cham­pagne 2017 with its more than 100 cham­pagnes from 33 houses to Perth’s Pan Pa­cific Ho­tel on Au­gust 16.

Stelzer is an award-win­ning tele­vi­sion pre­sen­ter with the Peo­ple of the Vines se­ries on SBS, an in-de­mand in­ter­na­tional speaker on all things wine and the au­thor of 15 books.

These awarded him the Euro­pean­based In­ter­na­tional Wine and Spirit Com­mu­ni­ca­tor of the Year for 2015.

He has also taken home the Wine Com­mu­ni­ca­tor of the Year in Aus­tralia in both 2013 and 2015, and, with his first Tyson Stelzer’s Cham­pagne Guide he won the Louis Roed­erer In­ter­na­tional Wine Writer Award.

And amongst many other things, he is also the James Hal­l­i­day Group of Pub­li­ca­tions’ Cham­pagne and Sparkling Wine writer.

Stelzer is best known in WA for his in­flu­en­tial Cham­pagne Guide which is re­leased ev­ery sec­ond year. The nearly com­pleted 2018/19 edi­tion will be re­leased to all of the ma­jor book­stores in Novem­ber this year.

The public cham­pagne tast­ing, at $115, is at the Pan Pa­cific Perth (207 Ade­laide Terrace) from 6-9pm on Au­gust 16.

For mem­bers of the trade, there is a free 1-5pm cham­pagne tast­ing ses­sion on the same day (reg­is­tra­tion is re­quired).

Stelzer’s in­ter­est and re­search on cham­pagne, and all things be­hind the scenes, have en­abled him to pro­duce the most in­ter­est­ing and de­tailed com­pre­hen­sive 102-page book­let on ev­ery­thing you need to know about cham­pagne in Aus­tralia.

Given this list of achieve­ments, you will un­der­stand his de­sire to be as­so­ci­ated with events and wines of the high­est stan­dards.
