The first of its kind in Australia, Effervescence is a festival celebrating champagne the wine and Champagne the region.

Walk the ‘champagne trail,’ set over the stunning 12,000 acre property of Spicers Hidden Vale, an hour from Brisbane, where tasting stations are hosted by representatives from major and smaller family-owned champagne houses. Supported by experts such as Vin de Champagne award winner, David Donald, Effervescence offers champagne lovers not just the opportunity to taste a broad range of champagnes, but to talk to people in the know; both makers and educators.

There's also food, cooking demonstrations and live music, champagne sabering to master or the challenge of a game on the petanque court to enjoy. And if a day isn't enough - Effervescence offers a limited number of special VIP champagne immersion packages over the weekend that include masterclasses, long champagne-matched lunches, champagne breakfasts and more.

Tickets sell out quickly, so get in quickly if you want to walk the champagne trail, or stay for the weekend to really immerse yourself.
