Kiama Work Life, Art, Champagne tasting, Paella & a precinct party


WorkLife Berry is having our final exhibition of the year and going out in style with a precinct party to coincide with the famous annual Berry Merry Christmas Parade.

We are celebrating Christmas and opening Belinda Aucott’s exhibition in Berry and a hosting bit of a party with our Berry neighbours and local businesses…think Justin Lil, Paella, Le Petit Bar.. in the space right next to us in Albert St…FUN!

For years, wine played a consistent role in artist Belinda Aucott’s life. As she pursued other adventures and careers: Parisian fashion reporter, part-time bookstore clerk, founder of a PR agency, English language guide on the French Stock Exchange.

“I was on holiday in a remote part of New Zealand,” she explains. “For the first week, I was just drinking a lot of champagne, and I decided, ‘I’m not going to drink anything else anymore, I’m just going to try to drink less and I’m only going to drink French champagne.”

That lasted for about a week.

The second week in, Belinda decided it wasn’t just enough to drink champagne. Instead, she started sketching the bottles – half for fun and half as reminders of her tasting notes.

She also realised that by immersing herself so deeply in something she truly loves for hours on end, a whole new world of possibility opened up to her. Champagne Republic started catching the eye of others and people started listening to her opinions, inviting her to events, even sending her bottles of Champagne to review.

We can’t wait to share her beautiful works with you! Our parties are always are kid friendly.

Swing by for a Champagne tasting thanks to Justin Lil, Oysters, Paella, live music and a proper all-in Christmas party to celebrate the year that has been!
