Join us in celebrating the 11th year of the prestigious Finer Things in Life French Champagne Festival at the Vineyard Hotel and Spa in Newlands, Cape Town, on 23 November from 6pm to 9pm.
The new 007 movie, Skyfall, will be released in South Africa this week and it is also 50 years since the first James Bond novel by Ian Fleming was published - perfectly timed to make a toast to. Better still, the opulent lifestyle of Fleming's larger-than-life character will be theme throughout the evening.
There will be more than 30 cuvees from premium and boutique Champagne Houses to thrill your taste buds. Expect names like Laurent Perrier, Taittinger, Pol Roger, Gosset, Bollinger, Louis Roederer, Nicolas Feuilatte, Guy Chabaut, Joseph Perrier and many more.
Hot and cold finger food will be served throughout the evening accompanied by live music playing theme songs from James Bond movies. Fresh oysters, rare cheeses, gourmet sushi and fine chocolates will be on sale for those who care to indulge.
Added to this James Bond’s favourite Aston Martin cars will share the limelight with this tempting tipple.
This year, St Luke’s Hospice will benefit from a charity auction for a private screening of a 007 movie, dinner and accommodation for two at the luxurious 12 Apostles hotel. Create your own Bond night and support a good cause at the same time.
Generous prizes for lucky ticket holders will be given away through the evening! We will also reward the best dressed couple with a luxury drive in a vintage Rolls Royce to a winery, including lunch.
This is your chance to stock up on your favourite Champagne for the festive season. Wine Concepts will offer all Champagnes on show plus a big selection more on a very special price for this night only.
