As you will have noticed, Grower Champagne Month is in full swing across London, and in our shops! We have had winemakers in store pouring their wines and a flood of new Champagnes hitting the shelves to add to the excitement.
If you were around in Chiswick during last year’s Grower Champagne Month, you probably heard about, or were among the many who attended, our First Annual Grower Champagne Showcase tasting. We had an overwhelming turnout of wine lovers who came to revisit favourites, as well as friends who were certain they didn’t even like Champagne. I am so happy we were able to deliver pleasant surprises for both groups, and to show that Champagne has a broad and diverse range of styles for almost any palate. This year we want to inspire the same kind of wine discoveries for you. Whether you are a seasoned Champagne collector, convinced fizzy stuff isn’t to your tastes, or enthusiastically somewhere in the middle; this tasting is full of excitement for anyone.
For the past 11 months I have laid awake at night pondering how we could make this year’s tasting even bigger and better. Thankfully, our generous growers and partners were up to the challenge! Together we have crafted an unforgettable lineup of Champagnes for this year’s showcase. This is your perfect chance to taste some of the most exciting wines being produced anywhere in the world today. Some of these wines are the best kept secrets in Champagne, and rarely cracked open for such events, so don’t miss the rare opportunity to taste them!
Chiswick’s Big Grower Champagne Showcase! – £20 per person

To ensure everyone has ample space to taste comfortably we have decided to split the event into two separate sessions. You have the choice to attend the tasting between 1pm-4pm or 4pm-8pm with the same selection of wines being offered for each session. Tickets are only £20 to taste more than 20 different Champagnes being poured, ranging in retail value from £25 per bottle to £175 per bottle.
But There’s A Catch…
Tickets for this year’s event are limited. We want to ensure everyone has enough space to enjoy these wines as there are few things more frustrating than an overcrowded tasting. So reserve your places quickly and rest easy knowing you’ll be treated to an afternoon of great Champagnes paired perfectly with a little bit of elbow room.
So book your places for either session today, and prepare for probably the best tasting event of the Summer!
