A festival of champagne is on its way
Sipping beautiful champagnes with a stunning Queensland countryside backdrop is the promise of a festival returning to Spicers Hidden Vale in the first weekend of September.
Tickets are now on sale for the third annual Effervescence champagne festival and it’s actually about a whole lot more than just ‘tasting the stars.’ The celebration is a day of indulgences, bringing together the wine, spectacular food and music, at beautiful Spicers Hidden Vale just an hour from Brisbane.
The Sunday champagne trail offers the chance to taste almost 70 different champagnes from more than 25 houses, from both boutique growers and major houses.
“It’s a unique opportunity for champagne lovers,” says event founder Amanda Reboul.
“There are plenty of tasting events for hospitality workers and champagne professionals, but it’s extremely rare for the public to be able to taste champagnes side by side like this.”
Guests can also buy the champagne at special prices, delivered to their door.
- A ‘Full Day Escape’ ticket. Guests begin with a 10am champagne masterclass, before a truffle and champagne long lunch with food by Bruno Loubet and Spicers Hidden Vale’s executive chef Ash Martin. They then walk the champagne trail.
- An exclusive VIP area The Luxe Lounge, where guests are able to taste 3 premium cru champagnes (additional ticket cost).
- A “designated driver” entry ticket for $50 (excludes the champagne trail).
