Effervescence LA – a wine festival for Champagne lovers

For those who love Champagne

It’s that time of year! Effervescence LA returns for its second year of springtime Champagne celebrating. Order your tickets and raise a glass for this one-of-a-kind decadence.

As an attendee of the first ever Effervescence LA festival last year, I can highly recommend that you book your place at this event. And do it right away in case your favorite event sells out. This year’s Champagne and sparkling wine festival takes place from May 3-5.

The lineup of events

I will admit that this is one of the more pricey events of the year. But when it begins with the opportunity to sip Krug, including rare, late-disgourged wines, at 71 Above in downtown Los Angeles, you really can’t expect to be hit with anything less than a luxury price tag. But that’s only day 1.

Day two offers a slightly more modest grand Champagne Tasting at the Line Hotel in Koreatown. Three masterclasses are included in this sparkling wine free-for-all. Each of these special tastings are first come, first serve. So if you’re attending, plan accordingly.

What would a wine festival be without a gala dinner? You can expect nothing less from Effervescence LA. This meal will be prepared by a women’s club of California’s chefs, including Nancy Silverton, Susan Tracht and Dominique Crenn. This gathering of some of the Golden State’s greatest culinary talents will take place at Tracht’s restaurant Jar, in central LA.

Sunday, May 5 will bring this Champagne festival to a close with, what else?–a bubbly brunch! This downtown LA event will bring together a walk around Champagne and sparkling wine tasting with more of the award-winning food of Chef Nancy Silverton.

How to get tickets

At this point your decision can’t be will I attend but which events will I attend? The Effervescence LA website provides additional information on participating wineries as well as event pricing and ordering information. What else can I say but see you in LA?!
