Champagne & Cheese Brisbane 2019 | Gourmand & Gourmet

A Champagne and Cheese pop-up? Yes please! 

Champagne and cheese – name a more iconic duo, we’ll wait.

While we’re waiting for an answer that doesn’t exist, let’s fill you in on a gleefully gouda event with its sights set on boosting your serotonin levels.

Prepare to ignore your lactose intolerance yet again because the annual Portside Wharf Champagne & Cheese pop-up is back for 2019! And here we were thinking this year couldn’t get any feta.

Over one deliciously huge day in March, namely Sunday March 31 from 12pm-6pm, you’ll be able to pull up a picnic blanket or sit in a v. special pop-up lounge to soak up all the glory of fine cheese and on par bubbly.   

This year’s pop-up is pairing with The Cheese Pleaser (hello signature apple and walnut chutney), Gusto da Gianni and Moët & Chandon, because sweet dreams really are made of cheese.

You can expect nothing less than the finest cheeses to go with your bae, Moët. We’re talking everything from Le Dauphin to Comté, and note that being able to pronounce your pick is irrelevant. All that matters is the fact that it’ll be tastier than a Frenchman riding a horse bareback through the countryside. 

Besides onsite cheese pleasers, participating venues throughout the Portside Wharf precinct will be getting into the spirit. Cheesy and bubbly deals will be available at the likes of Byblos (cheese platter for two), Belvedere (Gnocchi ai Formaggi con Ciabatta) and Dendy Cinemas (Cheese Box from The Cheese Pleaser and a Dunes Sparkling Piccolo) and more.

Of course, there will be live entertainment from extremely talented local artists, but the real star of the show will be you seeing what it’ll take to stop yourself eating too much cheese (the limit does not exist).  

As an extra perk, parking will be validated for pop-up goers and pups are more than welcome. Grab your best bud and your designated driver and prepare for a day of indulgence.

Hallou, is it mi you’re looking for? You’ll find mi at this pop-up, boyo, and you’ll find more info here.

Keeping the G&G up to date with tasty tidbits requires a lot of lattes and espresso martinis, so we occasionally need to give out some sponsored love. Rest assured that we only work with businesses that we think are really nifty, as the sponsor for this post is!
