Champagne festival Clicquot in the Snow is set to return to Queenstown this August and includes a Husky Sledding experience.
The annual luxury champagne festival is back in 2019 bringing new meaning to champagne powder and making it easier than ever to transition from the snow-capped mountains to a series of gastronomic alpine experiences, all with a Veuve Clicquot twist.
Enjoy the Clicquot Husky Sledding experience where you’ll feel the thrill of a sled dog team running through the high trails of the Southern Alps. Take the helm yourself or ride along in the basket with an experienced musher guiding your journey. Enjoy the inclusion of a curated Veuve Clicquot picnic while taking in the incredible Snow-Capped Mountains.
Experience a truly unique stargazing experience with a flute of Veuve Clicquot in hand; you will be amazed by sights not visible to the naked eye. Take a Gondola ride to Bob’s Peak, situated high above Queenstown, and journey into the hidden world of the Southern night.
Arguably the best part of skiing, Veuve Clicquot is making sure the fun doesn’t end when you reach the mountain base and is bringing Après Ski to Coronet Peak. Returning in 2019, Veuve Clicquot is inviting all mountain-goers a chance to unwind after an action-packed day with a flute of champagne at the popular Clicquot Après Ski Bar.
Dishing up Clicquot Cuisine
Clicquot in the Snow will once again partner with celebrity chef Josh Emett to bring back the Clicquot Long Lunch series at Rata Restaurant, a four-course degustation lunch inspired by the Veuve Clicquot range including the iconic Yellow Label, Rosé and Vintage 2008.
Looking for something a bit more relaxed? Head along to local favourites Cru Bar and Stacks Pub to enjoy their moreish ‘Flute and Fries’ pairing and sit back and relax with a flute of Veuve Clicquot paired with delicious truffle, parmesan fries.
Head along to Queenstown’s ultimate lakeside dining destination Wakatipu Grill during the month of August and choose from one of their three paired menu options with both Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label as well as an audacious La Grande Dame pairing.
Local favourite The Lodge Bar will also be adorned in Clicquot Yellow for the month of August, offering guests a delicious pairing with iconic Yellow Label Veuve Clicquot and Veuve Clicquot Rosé.
