The Champagne Trail

Visit Champagne for the day – no passport required.

There will also be opportunities to participate in the favourite French pastime boules (Petanque) as well as other interesting activities. A delicious selection of French-inspired food prepared by the Spicer's Team will be available for purchase on the day.

  • Three hours of tasting a large selection of champagne
  • A champagne tasting flute – the perfect way to enjoy champagne
  • Live music
