15th Annual Champagne tasting


This event has passed.

The 15th annual IMW Champagne tasting will be held at the Hyatt Centric Fisherman’s Wharf, San Francisco on Monday September 30 2019.

Seated Panel tastings of curated Prestige Cuvées and limited-production vintage wines are offered in two sessions: Prestige Panel 1, 1300-1430 and Prestige Panel 2, 1630-1800. Each Prestige tasting will feature different selections and are wonderful preludes to the Grand Walk-Around tasting which is held in two sessions (with the same wines in both): 1430-1630 and 1800-2000

This event is one of the largest and most prestigious tastings of top-quality champagne in North America. The seated afternoon events will be led by Charles Curtis MW and Tim Marson MW and will feature curated flights, while the walk-around tastings will include many exceptional champagnes, both vintage and non-vintage, organised by style: non-dosé, brut, dosé, blanc de blancs/noirs, rosé, etc.

A limited number of reduced rate tickets are available to full-time wine industry professionals (trade credentials required) and MW and WSET Diploma students. Please email Nancy Johnson at for reduced rate ticket promo codes along with your proof of trade or student status. Tickets are very limited and are non-refundable but may be transferred. Please purchase early to ensure ticket availability as this event always sells out very quickly.

Please also check out the BYOB 2019 Champagne Dinner hosted by the IMW Sunday evening September 29 at R&G Lounge as a wonderful prelude to the Champagne tastings.
