Discover the Top Sparkling Winemakers Around the World
The Great Champagne Experience

Larry Davis organises over 1,500 private Champagne & Sparkling Wine vineyard visits a year and has created bespoke private tours for nearly 20 years receiving consistent 5 star reviews. Personalised itineraries are created to surprise and delight all levels of wine enthusiasts, from beginners to professionals.

The top sparkling wine producers worldwide use the double fermentation in the bottle (Traditional Method ) primarily using Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Meunier. Two notable exceptions Prosecco, which relies on Glera grapes and the Charmat fermentation method. In Cava, the top producers ferment the wine with the traditional method but use local grapes.

We'll compare various grapes and styles and see how various sparkling wines work with different moods and different foods. We'll discover the internationally know grapes as well as local varieties such as Gruner Veltliner, Shiraz, or Zinfandel depending on which region you want to visit.
