Cape Town - Nothing fuels dreams and innovation like getting
out and seeing the world; and it is this celebration of wanderlust that is at
the heart of champagne House Veuve Clicquot’s heritage.
It is this thrill of travel,
and seeing new and interesting places that brings to life the #ClicquotJourney theme for the 2017 Veuve Clicquot Masters Polo Cape Town.
The popular polo and social event of the year,
currently in its seventh incarnation, celebrates the sport of kings combined with
the finest champagne. Socialites and the crème de la crème of African
influencers will descend on South Africa’s most prestigious polo estate - Val
de Vie Estate - on Saturday, March 4, 2017 to witness international polo players
compete for the coveted Veuve Clicquot Masters Polo Cup.
With this year’s #ClicquotJourney theme, guests can expect to taste food inspired by
some of the iconic cities that the popular Yellow label champagne brand travels
to - such as Los Angeles, Tokyo, Paris, London, New York and Cape Town to name
a few - all this enjoyed with Veuve Clicquot champagne of course. Val de Vie
estate will also be transformed in line with the theme, to ensure guests experience
a journey (of the senses) around the world with Veuve Clicquot, without leaving
the picturesque Paarl/Franschhoek valley.
Since its founding in 1772, Veuve Clicquot has
exported its champagne, first throughout Europe, then to the US, to finally
extend into Latin America, Africa, Asia and the Pacific, at a time when
traveling was an adventure and shipping champagne around the world was a
challenge. It was a necessity for Madame Clicquot (the grand Dame of Champagne)
to grow her business, but it was also an occasion for sharing, the chance to
build bridges and make new discoveries.
“As Madame Clicquot wrote to one of her
grandchildren, “The world is in perpetual motion, and we must invent the things
of tomorrow.” The same maxim holds true today. Passion is at the root of all
inspiration and adventure. It’s what propels you to get out of the familiar and
to discover - to let life surprise you. We are thrilled to take guests on a
journey where the world meets Cape Town during Veuve Clicquot’s most highly
anticipated event in South Africa,” adds Moet Hennessy Market Manager, Patrick
“Veuve Clicquot Masters Polo Cape Town remains
one of the most sought-after social event tickets in South Africa. The event is
ranked as one of the best polo events in the world and for the 2017 edition we
aim to exceed expectations, from the quality of the thrilling polo match, to
the festivities on the sidelines, the fashion experiences and more,” commented
VIVIDLUXURY CEO and event co-owner, Anina Malherbe-Lan.
The event continues to attract the attention of
international VIPs, African stars and local celebrities such as Nigerian film
and TV stars like Vimbai Mutinhiri, local entertainment celebrities like Lee-Ann
van der Walt, Jeannie D, Bonnie Mbuli, Maps Maponyane and Nomzamo Mbatha, along
with captains of industry and ministers such as Fikile Mbalula and Marthinus
