About Kyla

My story

After reading a series of books on the history of Champagne, I fell in love with the story of Napoléon Bonaparte and his friendship with Jean Remy Moët. I fell in love with Champagne itself. I wrote a letter to a gentleman who had written my favourite book on the subject and he wrote back inviting me to visit France to learn all about champagne.

I turned on my heel and quit my finance career, left my long-term partner, gave away my dog and bought a one-way ticket to Paris. This is where my incredible new journey began – a charmed life of delicious champagne, grand soirees, Saudi Arabian princes and luxury travel.

The beginnings of the Dame

When Dom Pérignon discovered champagne, he said: “Come quickly – it’s like you’re tasting the stars”. To me, champagne is the drink of toasts and celebrations, where elegance, sophistication and desire meet.

While living in France, I was lucky enough to be given a glimpse into the life of Champagne families where: I shared wine and stories with generations of passionate winemakers, tasted some of the world’s most beautiful and rare champagnes and studied the art of their unique existence.

That’s when I followed my heart and committed myself to champagne. Returning to Australia, I became a Champagne Ambassador, hosting masterclasses and delivering keynote speeches all around Australia. I work with the most prestigious champagne houses as well as the new boutique winemakers and share their amazing stories with you.
