Set on the idyllic grounds where Hollywood celebrity and polo connoisseur Will Rogers used to play polo himself, this historic site is located just outside Rogers' former private home.
In reverence to the gaiety of the sport's 1920s and 1930s heyday, guests are encouraged to don fashions inspired by that era, as well as traditional polo looks including daring hats for women and daytime suits for men.
Tickets to attend the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic are available from the official Veuve Polo Classic website, with the event benefiting the Will Rogers State Historic Park. Tickets must be purchased in advance and will not be sold onsite. There is a limited quantity available so get yours as soon as they are available.
The event will support the preservation of the Will Rogers State Historic Park. Faced with narrowing state budgets and staff reductions, the park depends largely on public and private partnerships like The Will Rogers Ranch Foundation and The Will Rogers Polo Club, as well as private contributions, for financial support of preservation efforts.
Veuve Clicquot began its long association with polo in England with the Veuve Clicquot Gold Cup and now in the United States with the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic. This stylish event began in New York City in 2008, marking the return of polo to Governors Island after nearly a 70 year lapse. In 2010, Veuve Clicquot brought the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic to Los Angeles for the first time, held at the Will Rogers State Historic Park. Due to construction on Governors Island, 2012 marked the first year the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic was held at the idyllic Liberty State Park, a stone's throw away from Manhattan.
Veuve Clicquot has sponsored polo matches at renowned US polo clubs including the Greenwich Polo Club, International Polo Club in Wellington, Florida, and Santa Barbara Polo Club in California.
The Veuve Clicquot Season
The Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic in both New York and Los Angeles are signature events of the Veuve Clicquot Season - a calendar of the most stylish events and memorable social gatherings throughout the year. Veuve Clicquot invites you to ski the slopes in Aspen during Clicquot in the Snow, sip champagne while playing Petanque on the beach this summer, or celebrate the most daring night of the year at a Yelloween party in your city. Join the Clicquot lifestyle at the country's most exclusive events while enjoying the world's most celebrated champagne.
Champagne Veuve Clicquot was established in 1772 by Philippe Clicquot. When Philippe's son, Francois, died in 1805, his wife Barbe Nicole Ponsardin was left a widow at the age of 27. Against all tradition, the audacious Madame Clicquot took over the family business and built one of the greatest champagne houses in the world, making her one of the top business women of modern times. In 1810, she renamed the house Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin and produced its first vintage wines. Veuve Clicquot is known internationally for its classically styled and full-bodied champagne. Qualities range from Brut Yellow Label to Veuve Clicquot Rosé to La Grande Dame, Veuve Clicquot’s prestige cuvée, which is made exclusively from grapes harvested in the Grand Cru vineyards acquired by Madame Clicquot in the 19th century. This year, Veuve Clicquot is thrilled to introduce select wines from its Cave Priveé collection to the US market, as well as La Grande Dame 2004.
