Alfred Place presents a decadent Champagne evening this October

Monday, 11 September 2017. 

Rockpool Dining Group has put the finishing touches on one of the most decadent wine events in 2017.

Melbourne’s Champagne lovers will unite for ‘An Evening of Champagne’, a lavish night featuring the world’s finest Champagne houses at Alfred Place by Rockpool Events on Wednesday, 11 October.

There will be a tasting of over 30 wines from icons such as Bollinger, Moet & Chandon, Veuve Clicquot, Taittinger, Louis Roederer, Ruinart and Billecart Salmon as well as smaller producers, including Larmandier Bernier, Chartogne-Taillet and Agrapart & Fils.

Rockpool Dining Group’s Beverage Director Sebastian Crowther MS – one of only three Master Sommeliers in Australia – will host an exclusive Masterclass in The Library from 6.30-7.30pm.

Sebastian will conduct a guided tasting of his favourite Champagnes and discuss the terroir, various grape varieties and different styles produced in this small yet extraordinary region.

To complement the wines, Rockpool Bar & Grill Head Chef Zac Nicholson will create a selection of canapés to enjoy throughout the evening. An array of Australian cheese, cured meat and other delights inspired by the menu at Rockpool Bar & Grill will be savoured in between sips of Champagne.

Alfred Place by Rockpool Events is located in one of Melbourne’s most historic laneways. An elegant example of art deco decadence with its grand staircase, soaring ceilings and opulent touches of marble and rich emerald, Alfred Place is as much a dedicated events space as it is a bespoke extension of the Rockpool Dining Group’s restaurants. It is the perfect setting for this decadent event.
