Les Expériences

Sally Hillman is pleased to announce that bookings for our SPRING/ SUMMER 2019 / 2020 champagne experiences are now open.

Les Expériences provide tasting opportunities for wine enthusiasts to discover the lesser known grower Houses of Champagne and to deepen their knowledge of this fascinating French wine. 

Sally Hillman’s speciality is seeking out exclusive “grower-producer” champagnes whose complexity and diverse characters are as individualistic as the vignerons who produce them.

Every aspect of a grower or récoltant-manipulant champagne is a reflection of its terroir, a hard-to-translate term that incorporates its micro-climate, soil type, topography and production technique. All these factors contribute to the individuality of every vintage.

Sally was a fantastic host and her attention to detail was second to none. The selection of champagnes was excellent and the quality, exceptional. Sally’s passion for and in-depth knowledge of grower champagnes was very evident. The menu was thoughtfully matched with the champagnes on offer. I highly recommend Sally Hillman to anyone seeking a unique experience; whether it be a corporate event or gathering among friends and family.
