Grower Champagne: Unique Expressions of Site and Vintage, 29 September 2022 6:30pm

UC2022GROWERCHAMP29SEPT UCAU

Grower Champagne. If you know, you know. It’s not about consistency year in, year out, blending multiple vintages and fruit from various vineyards across several subregions to achieve that ‘house style’ as the large Champagne houses do. Instead, it’s about terroir – a unique expression of site – and the defining features of a particular vintage. It’s no surprise then that Grower Champagne, where the people who grow the grapes also make the wine, is often referred to as ‘Artisan Champagne’.

The premium quality and individual nature of Grower Champagnes is increasingly attracting attention from consumers around the world. As we pursue everything that is boutique, bespoke, and pure, the intimate relationship that growers have with their land and their vines, and the way this expresses itself in the wines, is highly appealing.

United Cellars invites you to this intimate evening at L’Heritage Chowder Bay, where we will taste and explore the art form that is Grower Champagne. Wines on pour will include those of some of the better known estates such as Egly-Ouriet and Agrapart, but we will also discover the wines of some of the rising stars of the Grower Champagne community and hear their stories. These Champagnes are new to the Australian market and exclusive to United Cellars. With footage from the vineyards and insights from the winemakers themselves, this will be a very special experience and one you will remember.

Customer testimonial

Wonderful events

The 29 Champagnes on offer were varied, interesting and all of exceptional quality. The use of seven portable stations with four bottles on each was a great way to organise the tasting. The information provides by each of the people at the seven stations was informative and entertaining. We are very much looking forward to future events organised in this way - the forthcoming Chardonnay, Shiraz & Pinot tastings. Well done United Cellars.
