World renowned, tennis stars celebrated the official opening of the NZ Festival of Tennis last night at the glittering ASB Classic Players’ Party hosted by Moët & Chandon at Tribeca, Auckland. Sloane Stevens (36) and Coco Vandewghe (39) went for a touch of tennis chic and Caroline Wozniacki, former world No1, sparkled in a custom made Moët & Chandon champagne diamond bracelet, designed by Auckland jewelers Naveya & Sloane.
Earlier that day, Wozniacki attended a special ceremony where she was gifted the bespoke Moët & Chandon champagne diamond bracelet, specially crafted by Auckland designer Naveya & Sloane. The 5-carat champagne diamond bracelet, valued at $15,000 is one of two bespoke pieces created in the world. The second bracelet will be on display at the Moët & Chandon Champagne Lounge during the NZ Festival of Tennis (5-11 January). Public who visit the Champagne Lounge and enjoy a flute of Moët & Chandon during the tennis festival will have the opportunity to win the $15,000 bracelet. Guests may also be lucky enough to share a flute with some of the international tennis stars arriving for the tournament.
Based in the heart of the ASB Tennis arena, the Moët & Chandon Champagne Lounge will be serving up a range of fresh Japanese fusion dishes created by award wining Masu chef Nic Watt paired perfectly with Moët & Chandon champagnes.
Moët & Chandon is proud to be the exclusive champagne partner of the NZ Festival of Tennis for the second year in a row. The champagne house has long been an active supporter of international tennis and has become an icon of victorious achievement in sports. Guest are invited to experience all the action live at the ASB Classic (5-10 January 2015) and Heineken Open (12-17 January 2015) from the Moët & Chandon Champagne Lounge, which can be accessed by all tickets and ground passes.
