Celebrate everything champagne without travelling all the way to Northeast of France, it is what Spicers Hidden Vale has to offer this winter.


If you are looking for a relaxing day with friends in a nice country side or you don’t know what and where to go, join this fantastic champagne festival, held in August. This champagne trial aims to showcase the “Terroir” of different regions of Champagne with tasting from a selection of big name houses.

You will also be able to have a game of pétanque, one of the favourite French games.

So don’t miss out on a fabulous experience and lets all cheer “Santé”.
