Moët & Chandon are popping bottles in Sydney Harbour – and you’re invited

Moët Effervescence Series

Forget cocktails, summer punch, fruity health drinks – when the holidays arrive, there's only one way to celebrate and it's with a glass of fizz. Wouldn't you agree? Well, Moët & Chandon certainly do, and have decided to follow up its inaugural Effervescence Series with another activation at Mrs. Macquarie's Chair (Yurong Point) just in time for the festive season. Free-flowing champagne with a view? Sign us up immediately.

At its heart, the Effervescence Series strives to bring people together, and as such will see over 20 cities across the world raise a glass in unison. For its Sydney chapter, Moët & Chandon will launch the series on December 1, with the public invited to attend from December 2-3 and experience the larger-than-life architectural facade featuring golden arches and multiple levels set against the backdrop of Sydney Harbour.

Upon arrival, guests will receive a Moët Mini before being ushered through the activation to "explore the world of Moët & Chandon Effervescence, entering through the Eternal Effervescence room, exploring the Cellars of Moët and encountering a giant gold bubble – symbolising the essence of Effervescence – before travelling up a giant golden staircase to the upper floor". From this point, guests can sample the curated tasting menu alongside champagne pairings while enjoying the entertainment and theatrical performances Moët & Chandon have lined up.

As always, the Effervescence Series is not complete without a moment to "Toast For A Cause", a charitable initiative that speaks to the generosity of Moët & Chandon. For 2022, the partnering charity is once again The Sapphire Project, which supports the woefully underfunded area of marine conservation and the preservation of biodiversity within Australian oceans and beyond.

Where can you buy tickets to the Moët Effervescence Series 2022?

To experience Moët Effervescence simply purchase tickets through the Moët website, with options available for Friday evening's Moët Rosé Imperial event, Saturday's Moët Imperial day party, and the sumptuous A Journey Through Moët on Saturday evening, where Moët Imperial, Moët Rosé Imperial and Moët Grand Vintage will all be spotlighted.
