“I only drink champagne on two occasions. When I am in love, and when I am not” – Coco Chanel
Ahead of this weekend’s infamous Champagne Festival in Notting Hill, we are celebrating our very own bespoke ‘Champagne for the Day’ incentive. Our once-in-a-lifetime Champagne incentive includes; a private flight to the Champagne region in France, champagne tasting (of course) and much more.
To start, you will depart on an 80-minute private flight to Champagne. There will be no need for sneaking your legs into the aisle for leg room. No waking up the person next to you because you need to go to the toilet. No, that’s not for you. The private plane is the epitome of comfort and luxury. Once landed, you will be chauffeured by a private driver to Maison Ruinart, the oldest champagne house in France dating back to 1743.
From the Maison Ruinart’s beautiful private dining room, you will be treated to a delicious four-course mix and match pairing lunch, with plenty of champagne!
After, you will be taken to Maison Moet & Chandon for a tour of their cellars, and yes you guessed it, more champagne. Moet & Chandon is one of the most iconic champagne brands, easily recognisable and considered essential to any wine list. They are the largest producers of champagne globally producing 26,000,000 bottles per year, they are even said to supply Queen Elizabeth II. Exploring Maison Moet & Chandon is an opportunity to explore the largest cellars in the area spanning 28km.
Once you are full to the brim with bubbles, and on the edge of being able to float home, it’s time to hop on the private plane back to the UK. If you think you can drink any more champagne, do not worry because the private plane has chilled champagne waiting for your arrival.
Sad the day is over? Needing your champagne fix? It’s okay, you will receive a special gift from Moet et Chandon as the cherry on top of an unmissable day.
Some people say champagne is just for special occasions, at Villiers we think they are wrong.
