Some say diamonds are a girl’s best friend but tonight we set out to prove it’s Champagne! Set in the magnificent Tom McDonald Cellar, Church Road Winemaker Chris Scott will share the art of crafting Champagne and Méthode Traditionelle. Guests will try their hand at disgorging (removing yeast from the bottle) and the dramatic art of sabrage which is removing the cork from bottle using a sword. There will also be the opportunity to sample Church Road’s very first Méthode Traditionelle, a vintage Blanc De Noir disgorged after 7 years on lees. Dinner will be a five course degustation prepared by Jeremy Rameka of Pacifica Restaurant, paired with exquisite Champagne from renowned houses G.H.Mumm and Perrier-Jouet including Belle Epoque and Belle Epoque Rosé.
