The weather is getting warmer, Spring has sprung, Melbourne Cup is right around the corner; that’s right ladies and gentlemen, it’s that time of year again- Champagne time! And this year we’re going bigger and better than ever before with 25 Champagne Houses on show, showcasing almost 60 different wines. Of course we’ve got the classics that we know you love like Bollinger, Ruinart, Gosset and Pol Roger, as well as the best of the Grower movement in Larmandier-Bernier, Agrapart, Andre Jacquart and Laherte Freres. Added to this will be the Prestige Cuvee wines from the major houses; Louis Roederer’s Cristal, Pol Roger’s Winston Churchill, Dom Perignon, Krug and many, many more.
And if a night tasting Champagne wasn’t enough, there will be a delicious selection of artisanal cheeses and meats to eat, Ben the oyster man will be joining us once more and personally shucking your oyster in front of you and your ticket gets you your very own Riedel Champagne glass to take home, valued at $59.95. All this for $125- getting excited yet?
Well, we decided to go even bigger this year, and thought; who’s the very best of the best in Champagne? We are so very excited to be showing in an exclusive Masterclass two of the best wines, from the best vintage in recent memory, from the best houses in the region; Salon 2002 VS Krug ‘Clos du Mesnil’ 2002. This is an extremely limited Private Masterclass that will run from 6.30-7.30pm and will be hosted by Ben Hasko Master Sommelier. We have only one bottle of each of these incredibly expensive wines to open, so the Private Masterclass is strictly limited to 16 guests, and tickets are $250. Your ticket to this exclusive private tasting also give you access to the greater tasting before and after the Masterclass.
