“I only drink champagne when I’m happy and when I’m sad.” Lily Bollinger
A couple of quotes for champagne lovers to show that you’re in good company and to give you an excuse to drink more of the fine stuff – in case you should ever need one.
This weekend is the perfect opportunity to indulge your fine taste for champagne during the fourth edition of the Salon du Champagne, where you’ll have a chance to taste over 200 different champagnes from over 40 big producers.
The Salon, organised by wiine.me is now in its fourth edition and takes place at the Grand Hotel Kempinski on Saturday 4th of November.
Between 1-7pm on Saturday, 4th of November, salon visitors are invited to taste champagne, including great vintages and rare cuvees and can participate in masterclasses as well as a blind tasting competition. The masterclasses are included in the price of your salon ticket – the perfect chance to deepen your knowledge of champagne, including dosage, local grape varietals, vintages and terroirs.
From 10pm-2am – champagne lovers (with party tickets) are invited to celebrate the arrival of winter with the Veuve Clicquot party. #ClicquotInTheSnow
The party will be decorated in a snowy, wintry theme by Veuve Clicquot, includes a Veuve Clicquot open bar, fondue made with Veuve Clicquot Champagne, scallops, caviar and macarons, a demonstration from Aerial Dance, a photographer and a mirror booth!
From 11pm till 2am you are invited to dance the night away to the sounds of a DJ and there will be plenty of surprises throughout the night!
Tickets available separately or bundled for the Salon + Party.
