Take a walk on the wild side at Brisbane's latest champagne garden

Become one with nature (and champagne).

Listen, up Brisbane–this ain’t your garden variety wine and dine event!

There’s nothing we love more than a quality cuvée, and boutique champagne house Perrier-Jouët is set to provide you with the very best in their gorgeous collaboration with South Brisbane’s Emporium Hotel this spring!

Come Thursday, September 12, watch as the Emporium’s already stunning terrace transforms into an idyllic garden paradise made complete with panoramic views, lavish art activations,  and endless bottles of Perrier champagne.

Ready to brush shoulders with artists and connoisseurs alike? Then Perrier-Jouët Art of the Wild Paint and Taste masterclasses riddled with Brisbane’s best artists and free-flowing brut champagne is the event for you! On Wednesdays starting September 18, these masterclasses are your chance to mix with the likes of watercolourist Paul Margocsy and cartoonist Sean Leahy for just $60.

As for those looking to keep post-work drinks short and sweet, look no further than the garden’s Tuesday dessert and champagne tastings. For $65, one can indulge their sweet tooth with three hand-crafted desserts curated by Emporium’s sous chef Alex Norman that pair perfectly with cuvées picked by sommelier Antoine Huertier.

Before the garden disappears on Sunday, October 13, be sure to take your champagne soirees to the next level with the Emporium x Perrier-Jouët’s bottomless high tea events! On weekends at 10:30am and 1:30pm, this high tea allows guests to indulge in savoury and sweet delights including the Emporium’s signature Belle-a-Ron dessert and tea-soaked sultana scones paired with two hours of free-flowing champagne.

With bookings now available here, it’s not long now until the Art of the Wild champagne garden springs to life in the Emporium Hotel!
