Taking place at the Condé Nast College in Soho this year, from 21 March to 3 April, the Moët Academy – a celebration of Champagne savoir-faire – will be hosted by wine gurus Susie Barrie, Peter Richards, Jane Parkinson and Simon Stockton.
An immersive 360° virtual reality experience will transport guests through the vineyards of Maison Moët and show moving imagery captured by a drone from the original French vineyards and cellars to get a first-hand experience of where the maturation and bottle fermentation are taking place. The virtual tour will leave guests feeling as though they’ve visited the Moët & Chandon estate in Épernay, without the need to travel far.
