About Us

Kyla kirkpatrick emperor
Welcome to Australia's home of champagne - Founded by Kyla Kirkpatrick!
We love champagne!

It's one of the most intricate and difficult wines to produce, created painstakingly in one of the most climatically challenging regions in the world. It ages longer than almost all other wines and is rarely understood. The category of champagne is broad and deserves to be explored.

We believe that the wines coming out of the Champagne region of France are the most interesting they have ever been and it’s a supremely exciting time for the Champagne lover! 
Emperor exists to connect the champagne lovers of Australia with these stunning wines from France. Whether through the Emperor Champagne Club or seeking out grower champagnes or back cellar champagnes, we can assist via our online store, champagne events and champagne education.
We would love to help you with all of your champagne desires.
We ship quickly, package beautifully and have new champagnes added frequently to our portfolio.  Join our email list or follow up on Instagram or Facebook for updates.
