It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Bubbly (see past champagne posts here, here and here), so when I read about tasting festivals happening around Joburg I'm always delighted! This coming weekend on 29 and 30 March the first SizweNtsalubaGobodo Celebration of Bubbles Festival is happening at the (newly renovated) Inanda Country Club.
Guests can expect to be treated to a selection of Méthode Cap Classiques (MCC) and Champagnes, from Villiera, Simonsig and Genevieve MCC to Veuve Clicquot and Piper Heidsieck. Sipping bubbly on a sunny autumn day? I don't think there is a better way to spend a weekend :)
The Festival takes place on Saturday and Sunday from 12:00 -18:00, and tickets are R250 per person (this includes 10 tasting tokens and a champagne flute).
