Immerse yourself in champagne

Spicers Hidden Vale, 31 August - 2 September, 2018

Champagne is used to celebrate life’s most important moments, but this August, Champagne enthusiasts will gather to celebrate the wine itself.

A unique event for dedicated Champagne enthusiasts and interested novices alike, Effervescence burst into being in August 2016 at Hidden Vale, just an hour from Brisbane. The inaugural event, the first of its kind in Australia, celebrated everything Champagne, with tastings and masterclasses guiding guests through the different regions and styles of the world’s most loved wine. The Sunday Champagne trail offered the opportunity to taste and talk Champagne with Champagne experts and representatives from major and smaller family-owned Champagne houses.

Effervescence is back for the third year in 2018, (August 31 - September 2) brighter and bubblier than ever. Come on Sunday for a day of Champagne, food and music or make a weekend of it by booking one of the special VIP packages  with luxury accommodation and Champagne breakfasts, lunch, dinners and masterclasses.

We look forward to raising a glass with you again this August.
