Say cheers to two hours of sipping sparkling at this ode to bubbly sips.

If sparkling wine puts some extra fizz into your life, then you'll want to drink your way through this Melbourne event. On Saturday, April 20, 2024, the Bubbles Festival is coming to town to celebrate the most effervescent boozy beverages there are. You'll sip, you'll chat, and you'll meet the folks who make and distribute the tipples in question as well.

You'll also eat canapes — no one wants to down champagne, prosecco and other sparkling drinks on an empty stomach — while you're sampling and tasting across two hours. At least ten different wines will be on offer, and your $109 ticket also includes a champagne tasting glass to take home with you.

The venue: Bells Hotel in South Melbourne. You can take your pick of two sessions: from 12–2pm or 3–5pm on Saturday.

If you're feeling like really treating your sparkling-loving self, you can pay an extra $75 for a VIP ticket, which gets you access to a special cuvée tasting before the regular doors open — and two tasting glasses, rather than one.
