Lovers of fancy fizz will be popping the corks to hear The Farm at Cape Kidnappers is holding an exclusive weekend of prestige Champagnes from French winemakers Dom Pérignon, Moët & Chandon and some of the best New Zealand bubbles. 

Running from June 14 to 16, this rare opportunity will allow guests to the Hawke's Bay region to taste some of the world's most celebrated Champagne houses' new releases in the stunning cliff-top setting, with host Champagne ambassador Nicola Clay on hand to provide insights into the various vintages.

The weekend of indulgence begins on Friday, when guests for the weekend are welcomed with hors d'oeuvres enjoyed alongside a fresh, aperitif style 2006 vintage Cloudy Bay Pelorus, poured from magnum bottles, before enjoying an a la carte dinner. 

Saturday provides a day to make the most of the area's natural luxury, with ample time to enjoy the day of activities and relaxation that The Farm has to offer, from an award-winning golf course, private spa services, wine tasting in Hawke's Bay, walks on the 6000-acre farm or simply taking in the breathtaking views from the comfort of a suite. 

In the evening, a lineup of vintage Champagne from Moët & Chandon and Dom Pérignon is perfectly paired with a curated five-course tasting menu presented by renowned chef James Honore. Guests can then finishing the night with a tipple of Glenmorangie Signet whisky.

Tickets for the event are $1700 and include two nights' accommodation at the luxury resort with all the trimmings. To book, contact The Farm at Cape Kidnappers on +64 6 875 1900.
