We’re always in search of unforgettable weekend destinations to ensure we celebrate Cape Town summer in style. To end this summer season, Veuve Clicquot will be presenting their bright Veuve Clicquot Polo Brunch Series at Val de Vie Estate.
The Veuve Clicquot Polo Brunch Series offers champagne fans a chic new epicurean experience, with a Retro Chic theme; drawing on fashion, design and luxury from all decades, in celebration of a love for retro aesthetics which spark joyous memories and positive emotions. Expect chilled Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label, gourmet brunch offerings, upbeat tunes and of course, fast-paced polo – best observed from the viewing terrace. Without doubt the most stylish way to sip away under the sun in the winelands.
Surrounded by three majestic mountain ranges, Val de Vie Estate falls within the verdant Paarl-Franschhoek Valley, where the natural splendour of the Cape Floral Kingdom forms an idyllic backdrop to one of the most spectacular polo venues in the world. Translated from French, Val de Vie means ‘Valley of Life’ and the location has fast become a sought-after lifestyle destination in the Cape winelands and the ideal place to enjoy relaxed champagne experiences.
With its close proximity to Cape Town international airport and a short drive from global tourist attractions, the estate is also ideally situated for those flying into town and wishing for a weekend filled with Veuve Clicquot joie de vivre.
This summer, on select dates throughout March, April and May, locals and visitors alike are invited to dress in Retro Polo chic to paint their weekend yellow by heading to the winelands to wine, dine and toast to exceptional horsemanship, complete with picture perfect views and of course, Veuve Clicquot champagne. Just make sure to book well in advance as the Veuve Clicquot Polo Brunch Series is likely to sell out quickly.
Veuve Clicquot have created three champagne brunch experiences to choose from:
- So Clicquot! Terrace Brunch. Enjoy a sumptuous sharing platter for 2, as well as a plated dish from the à la carte menu such as gourmet Eggs Benedict or hot smoked salmon bagel, served with a chilled glass of Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label. Opt to sit on the terrace (weather dependant) or the ballroom, both overlooking the polo field set against the majestic Paarl-Franschhoek mountains. R495 per person.
- So Clicquot! Free-flowing Terrace Brunch. This brunch offers all the same gourmet delights as the terrace brunch (you’ll enjoy both the sharing platter and a dish from the à la carte menu) – but also includes free-flowing Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label during your brunch experience, served by the glass. R1495 per person.
- If you’re in the mood to extend the champagne festivities, why not book a So Clicquot! Polo Weekend at Val de Vie Estate, including the Sunday night’s stay at the renowned Pearl Valley Hotel by Mantis and a So Clicquot! Free-flowing Terrace Brunch for two, at R4995 per couple. Please just note this does not include flights or transfers.
The Veuve Clicquot Polo Series Invitational event will not be taking place this year, Veuve Clicquot hope to be able to host this prestigious event in 2022. The Veuve Clicquot Polo Brunch Series will provides fans with a perfect, socially distanced Clicquot experience this summer in line with covid regulations.
Brunches are taking place on the following dates, all on a Sunday from 10am – 3pm:
May: 2nd & 9th
