Veuve Clicquot Master Polo will be painting the city yellow, with Rikkis Taxis once again as its Official Transport Partner. Veuve Clicquot brings the “sport of kings” back to Cape Town for the 6th year as one the few prestigious Veuve Clicquot polo events hosted worldwide.

Taking place on the 5th of March 2016 Val de Vie Estate will again play host to this glamorous event. Surrounded by the mountains and vineyards of the famous Paarl-Franschhoek valley, Val de Vie is one of the most spectacular polo estates in the world. Their passion for the sport has transformed the estate into an unrivalled polo destination.

“We are delighted to be apart of the Veuve Clicquot event again this year and looking forward to working with the talented event orgaisers to provide a world class transport service”, says Ayub Baker MD Rikkis Taxis.

“Veuve Clicquot is more than just a champagne brand, it’s a lifestyle, and guests will experience this with some #ClicquotInTheSun on 5 March 2015,” adds Moet Hennessy Market Manager, Patrick Madendjian.

Fashion aficionados will enjoy a carefully curated experience as they gather on the scenic estate’s clubhouse terraces and watch models exhibit chic summer outfits in the official fashion show, without doubt one of the highlights of the day’s activities.

“D’ORE Fashion, home to the world’s top fashion brands is the official fashion partner for the event. This multi-brand fashion house is owned by Vanessa Gounden who is one of the first South African designers to have a free standing store in London. So there will be a lot of international trends and season forecasts on the 2016 Veuve Clicquot Masters Polo runway,” announces VIVIDLUXURY’s CEO Anina Malherbe-Lan, one of the event co-founders.

“As with most equestrian sports, the fashion worn on the sidelines is part of the atmosphere of the event. Inspired by Veuve Clicquot’s bright and bold Yellow Label, the dress code for the 2016 Veuve Clicquot Masters Polo is Polo Chic in bright & bold,” says Aimee Kellen, Moët Hennessy Champagne.
