champagne jayne’s story

As a teenage student from Wales visiting France for the first time, Jayne Powell’s world changed with a single pop of a champagne cork. The blond, bubbly magic in her glass, followed by a cascade of foaming bubbles, was love at first sip.

Channeling her inner 007 and magically becoming fluent in French overnight, Jayne was hooked. From that moment, she was smitten with everything French—especially champagne and its rich, sparkling history.

There is simply nobody more passionate about champagne, than Jayne.

from passion to purpose

In 2000 Jayne’s life literally turned upside down. After meeting the love of her life in Australia, Jayne quit a successful media career in London to follow her heart to Sydney. Everything was glorious. Everything except that there was very little choice of champagnes available to Australians – and even less understanding about the category.

So leveraging all her business-building experience, her media smarts and her lifelong passion for France’s finest fizz, Jayne decided to step up and become an independent catalyst for connection between champagne and consumers.

Since 2003, Champagne Jayne® has led the way in champagne and sparkling wine education. Her acclaimed “Which Champagne Are You?” masterclass series, in collaboration with celebrity chefs like Tony Bilson, Mark Best, and Christine Manfield, has elevated champagne and food pairing across Sydney and beyond. She is on a global mission to help everyone discover champagne and drink better bubbly without prejudice.

Champagne Jayne® is particularly in demand by companies in the business sector,  looking for an original form of engagement with their customers.
