Jancis Robinson OBE, MW, will be joined by wine luminaries from Australia and abroad including, Tom Stevenson (the world’s leading authority on Champagne and sparkling wines), Pierre-Yves Bournérias  (Œnologue and Winemaker, Institut Œnologique de Champagne), Tasmanian wine champions Dr Andrew Pirie and Andrew Hood, as well as Wendy Stuckey (winemaker, Chateau Ste.
