Champagne is known the world over as a wine of celebration, and what better way to celebrate a hard-fought victory than popping a cork. Veuve Clicquot returns this season to toast the teams every Saturday at the trophy presentation, immediately following the conclusion of each polo match.
Veuve Clicquot makes a wine to match any occasion, from its iconic and versatile Yellow Label, to Rose Champagne first blended by the house, and its opulent vintages. To enjoy a perfectly chilled glass with your polo picnics, ask for Yellow Label at the Twisted Pony Bar or in the VIP Polo Lounge. It’s an elegant champagne suitable for drinking as an aperitif or for accompanying an entire meal.
Since its foundation in 1772, the Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin House has remained true to its motto: “only one quality, the finest”. Its history carries the mark of an exceptional woman: Barbe Nicole Ponsardin, Madame Veuve Clicquot. This young widow of 27 years old was left devastated by the untimely death of her husband, but courageously took up the helm of the family business. She was uncompromising on quality, and set off to conquer the world, transmitting her taste for excellence and innovation to her successors.
