By Carolyn Enting
Aucklanders who love alpine living but can’t get to the slopes for the annual Clicquot in the Snow celebration can get their fix at the Clicquot Chalet at Seafarers, Britomart.
Located on level six at Seafarers from now till 11 August 2018 the Clicquot Chalet is open between 6pm – 10pm every Thursday to Saturday night.
The Clicquot Chalet is a nod to the modish ski resorts of France, making it the perfect inner- city hideaway to enjoy a flute of Veuve Clicquot Champagne this winter. Think faux fur throws, contemporary blush pink walls, a warming fireplace, pops of Clicquot yellow and of course, the finest in French cuisine. The curated menu offers a range of gourmet food options including caviar and salmon roe duo served with handmade crisps, Veuve Clicquot panna cotta and the Madame Reuben sandwich, all paired exclusively with Veuve Clicquot Champagne.
While there you can also send your own ‘Clicquot Mail’ using a bespoke postcard to send warm winter greetings to friends and family all over the globe, spreading the alpine festivities far and wide.
Clicquot in the Snow is taking place in Queenstown between 2-5 August with tickets now available to purchase for a variety of Veuve Clicquot events including the glamourous Colourama Clicquot Gala and Long Lunch at Rata featuring a 4- course degustation menu designed by respected chef, Josh Emett. Dubbed the most stylish event of the season, the four-day champagne festival’s Auckland extension will bring the best of Après Ski chic to town.
