Champagne is used to celebrate life’s most important moments.

Effervescence is back for the fourth year with a new home and a new name in 2019. ‘Blush by Effervescence,’ will take place at the stunning Hanworth House in East Brisbane on Sunday, July 21, with a focus on the most evocative of champagnes, rosé.

TV presenter, chef, and bon viveur Alastair McLeod will be catering an indulgent truffle four-course long lunch in a marquee in the garden of the historic property (which this year celebrates its 155th birthday), matched with eight pink champagnes.

At 2:30pm, the gates will open to general ticket holders with a mini champagne tasting trail representing the wines of six champagne houses.

Additionally, throughout the afternoon there will be a ‘Cooking with Champagne’ class by Fleur Sharpe from Cook Live Love, and two champagne masterclasses “Champagne for a Cause’, each with a vertical tasting of six iconic 1996 champagnes, with proceeds benefiting the Mater Hospital Foundation’s Chicks in Pink. There will also be a raffle to benefit the same charity, offering the chance to win a private champagne dinner for 8 people at Hanworth House - worth over $4000.

There will be a prize for the most stylishly dressed male and female, so frock or suit up in your best pink and join us for a bubbly afternoon honouring the world’s most celebrated drink.

Santé!

Champagne Louis Roederer

Champagne Louis Roederer

Logo-Champagne-Louis-RoedererRegion: Montagne de Reims

Description: When he inherited the Champagne House in 1833, the aesthete and entrepreneur Louis Roederer took a visionary approach to enriching his vines, aiming to master every stage of the wine’s creation. He forged the wine’s unique style, character, and taste. In the mid-nineteenth century, Louis Roederer acquired some of Champagne’s grand cru vineyards—an approach that contrasted sharply with contemporary practices.
While other Houses bought their grapes, Louis Roederer nurtured his vineyards, familiarized himself with the specific characteristics of each parcel, and methodically acquired the finest land. Louis Roederer’s guiding principle was that all great wine depends on the quality of the soil, a passion for tradition, and an astute vision of the future; the fame and reputation of the House of Louis Roederer was firmly established. His heir, Louis Roederer II was equally enlightened and adopted his father’s conscientious approach to the production of champagne, patrimonial estate management, and instinctive audacity.

Description: Canard-Duchêne is unique in its origins, history and style. The Champagne house has been located in Ludes, in the Montagne de Reims National Park, since 1868. Its founders, Victor Canard and Léonie Duchêne, both well-known characters in Champagne, were granted the right by the Russian Imperial Family to adopt its coat of arms as the family emblem. The crowned two-headed eagle has thus appeared on every Canard-Duchêne label since the end of the 19th century. These authentic, original Champagnes combine fruit, intensity and complexity.
