Join Moet & Chandon's Chief Winemaker At The Grove For A Special Degustation

Join Benoit Gouez for a French-inspired feast, complete with tales from the world of wine

The Grove is set to host a special four-course degustation lead by Moet & Chandon’s chief winemaker Benoit Gouez, who is travelling from France to share his incredible knowledge of Champagne.

Viva is excited to be the media partner for this one-off event which marks the unveiling of Moet & Chandon’s Grand Vintage 2009 — a blend of the year’s top wines.

The French-inspired menu will be paired perfectly with the new release (as well as a selection of other wines) and complemented by stories and expertise from Benoit.
