Kenya to Dubai: Moët & Chandon Celebrates Champagne Day

Moët & Chandon has been associated with the celebration of success and of life’s most memorable moments for nearly three centuries.

It is the world’s most loved champagne for a good reason – with the power to unite people globally in celebration.

Champagne Day 2021 provided the perfect moment to do just this, with coordinated Moët & Chandon events weaving a tapestry of collective champagne joy across Africa, Israel, and the UAE. The celebrations culminated in a Grand Toast to Today at 17:43 on Friday 22 October.

Champagne Day provides the perfect opportunity for Moët & Chandon to take its place as the custodian of the moment the world has chosen to celebrate the champagne region – for it is from Epernay, in the heart of the region, that Moët & Chandon originates.

 Moët & Chandon reflects the diversity and complementarity of the three main grape varieties of the champagne region: the body of Pinot Noir, the suppleness of Meunier, and the finesse of Chardonnay. The Maison, globally revered for its savoir-faire, historical know-how, and state-of-the-art technology, invited glamorous guests across the continent to connect in a series of daytime celebrations.

This year’s Moët & Chandon Champagne Day experiences spoke to Moët & Chandon’s generosity, grandeur, and savoir-fete (knowing how to celebrate!). In a collective moment, guests across 10+ countries raised their glasses to join a Grand’ Toast to Today’, which took place at 17:43 in homage to the year this iconic Maison was founded.

 The toast was crafted by Siphokazi Jonas, one of Africa’s leading lights in the art of the spoken word, and served to set a suitably celebratory tone. Her words honored the spirit of celebration, of being united, of zest for life.

She spoke of how shared joy can connect across nations and cultures and reminded guests of the importance of celebrating each day.

“Events of the recent past have highlighted the importance of acknowledging our daily triumphs, meaningful moments, successes, friends – as often as possible. Too often, we are so focused on life’s major milestones that moments we should be acknowledging every day can pass us by. The Moët & Chandon Grand’ Toast to Today’ experience served as a powerful reminder to pause and reflect and celebrate what we have, “says Dominic Ryan, Managing Director of Moët Hennessy Africa and the Middle East.

Celebrating life’s triumphant moments with elegance is the essence of Moët & Chandon. Guests in each country were invited as honored icons of success and elegance.
