Nothing says celebration
quite like Champagne

“Too much of anything is bad, but too much Champagne is just right.”
- F Scott Fitzgerald

A globalised and proudly African platform sponsored
by Absa CIB to discover the things that speak of excellence and joie de vivre

Join us in celebrating the best that life has to offer, whether it is travel, events, experiences or dining… everything tastes better with the golden bubbles!


Toast Africa’s tomorrow

The past two years have brought about many obstacles, but also many great stories of bravery, triumph and resilience of the human spirit. And there’s no more fitting way to celebrate than with Champagne.

Join us at the virtual Champagne in Africa Festival, previously known as the Absa Champagne Festival, on Thursday, 25 November 2021, from 19h00 – 20h30 (CAT).

The virtual experience is FREE for all to attend. Purchase a hamper worth R795, which includes a bottle of pre-selected Champagne and two flutes, if you would like to immerse yourself in a tantalising bubbles experience for you to enjoy during the event… with a glass of bubbly in your hand.
