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.
