2017 Champagne Trail

  • 2017 Champagne Trail
    August 13, 2017
    2:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Visit Champagne for the day – no passport required.

A completely new concept of champagne experience, our champagne trail aims to showcase the terroir of the different regions of Champagne with tastings from a selection of grower champagnes and big name houses.

Participants will spend a relaxing afternoon following a trail at their own pace around the picturesque grounds of Spicer’s Hidden Vale with stations set up at various points representing the four main growing regions of champagne; ‘Montagne de Reims’, ‘Vallee de la Marne’, ‘Cote de Blancs’, and ‘Cote de Bar’. There will also be opportunities to participate in the favourite French pastime boules (Petanque) as well as other interesting activities.

Ticket for the Sunday event include:

  • Three hours of tasting a large selection of champagne
  • Bread, cheese and charcuterie
  • A Philippe Jamesse tasting flute – the perfect way to enjoy champagne to perfection
  • A notebook to record your experiences
