Meet the Maison – Ayala

Saturday 4th May 2019

Unit 6, 18 George Street Sandringham Victoria

Come down to Emperor HQ, chat with the experts and taste some beautiful wines.

Champagne AYALA is one of the longest-established champagne Houses; it has been based in Aÿ, at the heart of the great champagne vineyards, since it was founded over 150 years ago. Independent and family owned, it is still today the archetype of a great and historic boutique House, producing top quality wines which are enjoyed throughout the world for their freshness and elegance.

Champagne AYALA has always been a small, independent and family run business. AYALA is the sister champagne to Bollinger. In 2005 the Bollinger family bought this fine estate, with the intention of restoring it to it’s former glory. This was the start of a resurgence for Champagne AYALA.

This event will include a structured tasting of 5 Champagnes and cheese with Laurence Alamanos.

Tickets $30

Sparkling Wines of the World – Wine & Cheese Masterclass

Thursday May 23rd 7-9pm

Milk the Cow Carlton

323 Lygon Street, Carlton

Join me as I retrace the global steps of a group of intrepid Geologists from Moët et Chandon in the 1960s in Milk the Cow’s Grenier Room.


Sip through different countries as the explorers set off around the world, tasked with finding the most similar terroirs to Champagne to begin growing grapes.


We look at a comparison of the most interesting New World sparkling wine producers that are benchmarked to champagne, including Australia, Argentina and California, alongside a classic French champagne. 


Milk the Cow’s Brand Ambassador Laura Lown has matched each of these exceptional wines to a cheese from our cabinet, and she will join me on guiding guests through each pairing one by one.


Truly a decadent event for any cheese or wine connoisseur, featuring two industry-leading ladies who will share their knowledge and passion for the stories and history behind some of the world’s finest artisan produce.

Tickets $145
