The 39th Ryder Cup will toast entry into American Golf

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – Moët & Chandon and The PGA of America announced that Moët & Chandon will be the Official Champagne of The PGA of America, aligning the world’s most beloved champagne with the world’s largest sports organization. Moët & Chandon, the champagne of success and glamour since 1743, is enhancing its rich heritage as an icon of victorious celebration and global winning moments with this first foray in American golf, beginning with the Ryder Cup, in September of 2012 in Medinah, Ill.

“One of the world’s most recognized champagnes of choice at premier events, The PGA of America is proud that Moet & Chandon will serve as the Official Champagne of The PGA of America,” said PGA of America President Allen Wronowski. “We cannot envision a better addition to the many magical moments at our Championships than Moët & Chandon.”

Moët & Chandon’s status as the ultimate symbol of success, achievement, and victory was created through an unwavering and triumphant presence at many of the world’s most esteemed competitions and high-profile moments. Moët & Chandon has been at the finish line of international boating and car racing competitions for nearly a century, including the Vanderbilt Cup, Formula One, 24 Hours of Le Mans and the America’s Cup. Moet & Chandon celebrates the elegance and style of tennis on the courts of the U.S. Open, and Roland Garros Barclays ATP World Tennis in London.

Moet & Chandon also symbolizes triumph atop the world’s most revered podiums, including the Cannes International Film Festival, the Golden Globe Awards, and the Academy Awards.

“Moët & Chandon’s partnership with The PGA of America is a natural,” said Ludovic du Plessis, Vice President of Moët & Chandon North America. “Through the magic of champagne, we look forward to creating unique and unforgettable Moet Moments together with The PGA of America and sharing our sense of celebration in the spirit of success and glamour starting with the Ryder Cup in September as its Proud Partner.”

Under the agreement with The PGA of America, Moët & Chandon will be present at all the important and commemorative moments of the competitions including the iconic “Trophy Moments.” In addition, golf fans at PGA of America events will be able to enjoy their golf with a logoed commemorative mini Moet bottle that will likely become a valued memento.
