Heading to Brisbane and love fine champagne, art and dessert?
You won’t want to miss these events.
Boutique champagne house Perrier-Jouët will host an Art of the Wild Champagne Garden event series to celebrate its official partnership with the luxurious flagship Emporium Hotel South Bank.
Nature Inspired Events
With nature at the root of the history of Maison Perrier-Jouët, serving as the primary source of inspiration for the elaboration of its cuvées for over 200 years, the events will feature champagne, art and cuisine in the floral and intricate style which has defined the house since its foundation in 1811.
Historic Champagne House
Known for defying tradition and breaking free from the clichés of luxury and champagne, the events will reimagine nature in a vibrant, magnetic and spectacularly extravagant way. Unique champagne experiences and events are planned that fully express the Art of the Wild ethos with nature and art at its core.
Coinciding with the acclaimed Brisbane Festival throughout September 2019, with the Champagne Garden continuing until mid-October, the pop up will transform the Terrace Dining Room on level 21 of the hotel with panoramic views of Brisbane.
