Les Expériences

“memories that will last a lifetime”

Sally Hillman experiences are elegant, memorable and fun for all, providing the opportunity to socialise with friends and family or engage with corporate clients while you enjoy champagne and learn about this fascinating French wine.

A Sally Hillman experience will introduce you to a wide range of champagnes. Our speciality is seeking out exclusive “grower-producer” champagnes whose complexity and diverse characters are as individualistic as the vignerons who produce them.
Part of the Sally Hillman champagne experience is learning to recognise the differences and celebrate these subtleties while enjoying a soirée with exquisite canapés or a convivial seated three- or four-course meal. The menu for each experience is unique and carefully designed in close conjunction with our chef, ensuring that every champagne is perfectly paired with a seasonal dish.

For wine enthusiasts it is an opportunity to discover the lesser known grower Houses of Champagne and to deepen their knowledge of this fascinating French wine. For novices, there is an opportunity to learn more about the depth, character and quality that champagne has to offer.

Sophisticated experiences are tailored for all groups, from large gatherings to small, intimate tastings of carefully selected grower champagnes

The Ultimate Champagne Experience

A meticulously curated small group tour of Champagne providing a unique opportunity to discover this fascinating region as well as a handpicked selection of some of its iconic Houses, taste exclusive champagnes and partake in gastronomic experiences.

Limited to 8 guests.

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.
