Moët & Chandon Officially open the Festive Season with Champagne Christmas Tree in Cape Town
Capetonians and visitors to the Mother City alike celebrated the start of the festive season with Moët & Chandon, the world’s most loved Champagne, with the spectacular lighting ceremony of the city’s grandest Champagne Christmas Tree on the 7th of December.
Africa’s first Champagne Christmas Tree
Countless #moetmoments were created on this perfect Cape Town summer’s evening at the V&A Waterfront’s stylish new Silo District in the course of this glamourous event. True to the Maison’s grand style of celebration the Moët & Chandon Champagne Christmas Tree saw Cape Town shine, with the first tree of its kind built in Africa.
Moët & Chandon guests, including Siv Ngesi, Ryk Neethling, Cameron van der Burgh and Sonia Booth watched in awe as the impressive and interactive 10-meter Moët & Chandon Champagne Tree, made entirely from over 1,500 recycled Moët & Chandon champagne bottles, was brought to life during a dazzling lighting ceremony, hosted by Maps Maponyane.
Sharing the festive Spirit
In true festive spirit, visitors sent hundreds of messages via Twitter or Instagram to their loved ones on the night … and all the messages that included the hashtag #moetmomentcapetown appeared, as they were posted, on a light ribbon wrapped around the tree. And, to add to the excitement, when visitors engaged on social media using the #moetmomentcapetown followed by the popping champagne bottle emoji, the golden crown at the top of the tree spun.
Save the date
