Champagne Mumm Saison des Neiges

It’s time to raise a flute to winter, at none other than the most iconic wintertime destination in the country. This year’s Saison des Neiges, or Season of Snow, is kicking off in the dreamscapes of Queenstown and Champagne Mumm is pulling out all of the stops.

For the ultimate après ski experience this winter, QT Queenstown’s Champagne Mumm cocktail party is the place to be. The weekend of festivities kicks off on Saturday 27 July, where you’ll enjoy G.H. Mumm Champagne, curated champagne cocktails and eccentric canapés at QT Queenstown’s elegant Reds Bar.

There will be no shortage of entertainment with beats by DJ duo Sweet Mix Kids and a live art installation by graffiti artist Sprays and Threads. Expect spectacular Jeroboams—that’s four wine bottles in one—and learning the art of sabrage. Ringing in Saison des Neiges in style will be media personalities Carissa Walford from IN.BED.WITH.CARISSA, along with Cassidy Morris and Ricki Dee who will be joining Champagne Mumm ambassador Ophelie Neil. With the champagne flowing and tunes sorted, the dancefloor will be yours for the taking until late into the night.

The backdrop itself is something to look forward to—the breathtaking spot is situated over the glacial waters of Lake Wakatipu, and backed by perfect views of the surrounding mountains. Get ready to scrub up in your most cocktail glam, and prepare for a night to remember.  

The celebrations continue on Sunday 28 July, where Champagne Mumm will host an intimate dining experience at the Queenstown’s iconic Botswana Butchery. Hosted in the exclusive Owners Room, each of the dishes of the five-course long lunch will be complemented with a Champagne Mumm pairing. Carissa Walford will also be talking about her extensive career and the creation of her own IN.BED.WITH.CARISSA series, as well as fashion and winter with Bravo TV host Cassidy Morris.

This luxury experience is the ultimate winter weekend with your squad, and with only a handful of tickets left you better get yours stat. Celebrate winter in true Queenstown style, and take your après ski to the next level with this ultimate winter weekend away.
