10 Premium Champagnes + 5 Seafood courses - 1 magical night!
What is the most important thing about a great Champagne? Is it the prestige and heritage that comes with one of the Grande Marque Champagne houses? Or is it the artisanal excellence that comes from growing your own grapes and ensuring only the best goes into each bottle?
Join us in our delicious attempt to answer that question...
Whilst 90% of the vineyards are owned by growers, only 20% of these growers sell their own Champagnes and the rest sell their grapes to the Grandes Marques. It’s these big guns that have really evolved the Champagne market and helped to drive it to the level of brand recognition it has today. What you can expect from your favourite Grandes Marques is consistency and status, but what you want is magic!
On the flip side, grower Champagnes are made artisanally, in small volumes - sometimes only thousands of bottles rather than the millions produced by bigger houses. The grapes are produced from the growers’ own estates and tend to reflect the particular soil and climate as well as the personal philosophies of the winemaker. We’ve selected some of the most passionate grower producers in Champagne who are fanatical about each vine and each grape, producing Champagnes that are individual, expressive with a unique sense of place. Like Christophe Mignon who has been following the lunar calendar for 20 years and allowing it to dictate the activities in his vineyard to Pascal Agrapart who is all about the terroir producing Champagnes only from 100% grand cru locations. To ensure the highest possible quality, productions are kept to under 6000 cases a year!
Join us on this special night to celebrate the best of both worlds. Taste 10 specially selected premium Champagnes paired with equally inspiring Modern Australian seafood dishes. Situated by the newly built waterside precinct of Barangaroo, Love Fish prides itself on using the freshest, local ingredients sourced from sustainable producers. This is a unique wining and dining experience you don’t want to miss! Seats are limited.

"Absolutely loved the event last night. Great selection of diverse samples from a single region! It was both surprising and refreshing. Attila made the event too with his stories and anecdotes.

"Thank you for making tonight not boring!" - Steve
"I have now been to 2 of your wonderful wine dinners – ‘Noir’ and ‘You say Wine, I say Vino’. They were fabulous nights.
Not only are you great hosts but Attila is a great MC and wine expert. Your evenings provide a no-nonsense story behind every wine so we are truly learning something and appreciating the true craft of wine making. I love the line that “This wine will change your life…..” because it is also about understanding the wine maker and the passion behind the wine that makes every wine unique. You are discerning in your selections and I appreciate the effort which you go to in trying to procure the rare wine vintages you provide. I have enjoyed every wine you have selected so far.
Thank you for your fabulous wine evenings. I will absolutely go to more and highly recommend this to anyone who wants a thoroughly interesting and enjoyable evening. -Sarah"
