Current custodian and sixth generation family member Olivier Krug has strong views on the best glass in which to enjoy his fine champagne.

And in a strange twist of fate, he has given his blessing for Adelaide’s Exeter hotel to serve Krug in butcher glasses.  

Joining you for this masterclass will be Tasting Australia drinks curator Nick Stock and Deviation Road winemaker Kate Laurie, whose Adelaide Hills sparkling continues to win praise.

Taste a selection of vintages as you learn about the brand’s special relationship with the Exeter – one that sees individually numbered butcher glasses given to all who order a bottle of Krug. Unlikely? Sure. But this odd couple is living happily ever after.

Joseph Krug – a visionary non-conformist with an uncompromising philosophy – established his Reims champagne house in 1843. It remains family owned and is known around the world for its simultaneous poise and power.

Laurie, a heroine of all things bubbly, studied oenology in France and uses its traditional methods when making sparkling from her 130-acre property.

If you’ve been angling for an excuse to get to the Exeter, look no further.
