Illuminate : A Champagne and Sparkling Wine Event 2018

11/10/2018

“Come quickly, I am tasting the stars!” – Dom Perignon, the moment he discovered Champagne.

It's a quote from the 1600s that carries through to today and Champagne is a wine that has marked more than a few of the landmarks in our lives. A wine that epitomises celebration and excellence, it’s a style that embraces innovation whilst staying rooted in strong traditions.

It is with this exploratory spirit in mind that we invite you to join us at Illuminate : A  Champagne & Sparkling Wine Event at The Oak Barrel this November. 

Hosted at our Sydney CBD store, it will be a chance to experience historic, traditional Champagnes alongside the new world of Sparkling from Australia and other parts of the world.

With a selection of over 50 of the best International and domestic Champagnes and sparklings wines, this will be an impeccable way to welcome in the festive season.

Your ticket price includes entry and all your tastings for the day. Upon entry you'll receive a glass for the day and then you can make your way around the various tasting tables, each with their own unique sparkling wines and stories.

When: Saturday 24th November 2018
Time: 1pm to 4pm
