La Fête du Champagne

Peter Liem and Daniel Johnnes are pleased to present La Fête du Champagne, a celebration of the wines of Champagne that welcome over 30 of the region’s most highly-regarded producers, that this year is coming to London on the 3rd – 4th November for a weekend of events to include tastings, seminars, and a festive Gala Dinner.

Over the course of the weekend enjoy an exclusive dinner of rare Dom Pérignon wines or an informative and engaging seminar, as well as the flagship events – A Grand Tasting of wines from all attending Champagne producers and the culminating Gala Dinner. Bubbledogs will also be present at the Grand Tasting, serving up a selection of mini hot dog canapes for all to munch on, while tasting some of the very best from Champagne.

One of the weekend’s must-attend events, the Grand Tasting will offer guests a selection of wines from each participating producer, totaling over 100 different Champagnes accompanied by a selection of small plates from some of London’s most acclaimed restaurants.

The culmination of La Fête du Champagne, the Gala Dinner will be at The Savoy, one of London’s preeminent venues. Three-Michelin-starred Chef Arnaud Lallement of l’Assiette Champenoise in Reims will collaborate with chefs including our very own James Knappett of Kitchen Table, Jonny Lake of The Fat Duck, and Isaac McHale of The Clove Club in preparing a luxurious, Champagne-friendly, multi-course menu. In addition to enjoying the special bottles provided by all attending producers, guests are invited to bring bottles of Champagne from their own cellars to share throughout the room. This is sure to be a Champagne-soaked celebration with some of the region’s finest winemakers.
