Sydney is set to fizz with excitement as Moët & Chandon announces that its international ‘Effervescence’ celebration is coming to Sydney Harbour.

The four-day festival opens on December 2 with a giant, reflective installation, entitled ‘Effervescence’, taking over the Bennelong lawn.

Using the backdrop of Sydney Harbour and the Royal Botanical Garden, the 500sqm metre circular sculpture is set to become a symbol of celebration.

Inside the sculpture guests will be taken on a magical journey through the world of Moët & Chandon, travelling through the ‘Cellars of Moët’ to discover the ‘Heart of Celebration’. The interior will feature a glittering custom-built chandelier, an immersive Eternal Effervescence Room and a glamourous champagne tower.

“We’re delighted to be one of the leading cities around the world playing host to Moët & Chandon’s celebration of Effervescence. After a challenging year, our great wish is that this end of year celebration marks a moment of magic and the joy of togetherness”, says Regis Dupuis, managing director, Moët Hennessy Australia & New Zealand.

Over the course of the four days, the French maison is inviting guests to discover the festival.

Open to the public via ticketed entry and walk-in’s the day events ($35) will offer access to the Moët & Chandon installation, a Moët Mini on arrival, Moët cuvees paired with light pairings for purchase at the ‘Heart of Celebration’ bar and views of Sydney Harbour.

By night, guests will have the option of three different curated experiences from Thursday December 2 until Saturday December 4.

Here, the different evening’s include the Moët Impérial Evening, the Moët & Chandon Rosé Impérial Evening and the Moët Grand Vintage Evening, each one filled with Champagne, canapés and exciting celebrations.

With tickets starting at $100 the events include 120 tickets available each night, a Moet Mini and champagne for the evening, roving food, hosting by Moët & Chandon ambassadors, live DJ sets by homegrown talent Alice Quiddington.

Additionally, those who purchase tickets online will have access to limited edition Moet & Chandon magnums with a choice of either Moët Impérial Gold Magnum or a personalised Moët Impérial Magnum with festive messages in gold calligraphy. That’s Christmas sorted then.

The event is all for a good cause with those at the maison’s Effervescence events around the world invited to raise a glass and join its charitable initiative of Toast for a Cause. This year, the toast will be dedicated to the preservation of biodiversity and in Australia, Moët & Chandon will partner with The Sapphire Project, supporting marine conservation.
