We’ve found the ultimate place to be this winter… (and it also involves champagne!)

Flowing champagne, delectable cuisines and a bevy of events all set against the picturesque backdrop of Queenstown.

Back and better than ever, Clicquot in the Snow is set to celebrate the glory of winter and Queenstown’s stunning scenery this August. The event boasts the nation’s only bar-to-snow event set across four – yes, four – blissful and immersive days packed full of events in and around Queenstown. So essentially… if you didn’t already have an excuse to take a break and jet set to Queenstown, you do now.



Major highlights this year include the return of Kathryn Wilson’s runway show which is set to celebrate the shoe designer’s 15th anniversary. A must-attend event for shoe lovers, guests will enjoy a showcase of the brand’s spring/summer 2018 collection.

New to the event this year is the Clicquot Snow Shoe Experience at Snowfarm, where you’ll be able to go off-road and enjoy exclusive alpine experiences before sauntering to the iconic Meadow Hut to enjoy a grazing platter and a bottle of champagne – of course!

And if this wasn’t enough of a dream getaway, take in a moment of relaxation at the Hilton Queenstown’s Eforea Spa. Throughout Clicquot in the Snow, the spa will be offering exclusive experiences with a Clicquot twist to suit everyone, including a flute and facial offering.

Food and Drink

After a long day at the snow, the Clicquot Apres Ski Bar will be at the ready to serve you with a bottle of champagne. And if you’re craving a feast, Josh Emett and Rata Restaurant have teamed up with Cliquot in the Snow to create the Clicquot Long Lunch series where you’ll feast on a four-course degustation inspired by Clicquot Colourama and the Veuve Clicquot range. Alternatively, if you’d prefer to leisurely graze, the Clicquot High Tea at the Skyline is the perfect way to spend your day with a range of delightful sweet and savoury pieces paired with Clicquot.


In closing

You’ll want to sign off the four days in style, so head to the Clicquot Colourama Gala to celebrate all the best Clicquot moments with streams of champagne and live entertainment from some of New Zealand’s best. Guests will also be able to enjoy art, a range of interactive elements and an alpine rosé oasis in celebration of Madame Clicquot creating the world’s first blended rosé champagne 200 years ago.

Clicquot in the Snow runs from Thursday 2nd August to Sunday 5th August with tickets available at Eventfinda.
