The Bubbly Festival
5 April 2018
“Champagne is one of the elegant extras in life” Charles Dickens
Champagne, MCC, sparkling wine or even bubbles, however, you like to address the liquid goddess, it is always a bubbly occasion in our lives. This May, Hyde Park will be all about celebrating some of South Africa’s finest Cap Classiques as well as others from around the world including Champagne at The Bubbly Festival Pops Up.
Friday, May 18 through to Sunday, May 20, bubbly aficionados, epicureans and those who love the good things in life can spend the weekend popping corks, filling flutes and sipping some of the best sparkles around while snacking on fine foods and listening to live music.
“The Bubbly Festival will allow Gautengers the opportunity to sample some of South Africa’s best Cap Classiques, all in an elegant yet relaxed atmosphere.” ~ Darielle Robertson

“Too much champagne?”
“Silly girl,” she said, looping her arm through mine. “There’s no such thing as too much champagne. Though your head will try to tell you otherwise tomorrow.”
