Most Brisbanites have driven past the historic, heritage-listed villa that is Hanworth House many a time. You mightn't have ventured off Lytton Road and into the tree-lined property, though — or wandered around drinking plenty of sparkling. Always wanted to do the former, and never even dreamed you could do the latter? Well, now you can.

After running as a weekend-long event at Spicers Hidden Vale for the past couple of years, the Effervescence Champagne festival is back. In 2019, it's taking place on just one day, in Brisbane, and with a focus on all things pink, fizzy and from a certain French region. Hence the new moniker, Blush by Effervescence, which makes its revamped debut on Sunday, July 21.

Multiple options are available, suiting every kind of Champers fan — well, as long as you like rosé champagne, that is. You can head along at midday for a $295 four-course lunch, with well-known chef Alastair McLeod whipping up a truffle-heavy feast with matched tipples, all in a garden marquee. Or, you can make your entrance at 2.30pm, pay $65 and sip your way around a tasting trail. If masterclasses are your thing, two are on offer too, serving up vintage 1996 varieties for $195 and learning how to cook with the wine in the spotlight for $130.
