Veuve Clicquot Welcomes Penelope Cruz and Thousands of Guests to Liberty State Park for the 11th Annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic

For the 11th year in a row, Veuve Clicquot welcomed more than 9,000 polo enthusiasts to Liberty State Park to kick off the summer season. With stunning views of Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty serving as the backdrop, guests enjoyed an afternoon fête complete with a fast-paced polo match, stylish fashions and, of course, Veuve Clicquot champagne.

Always a star-studded event, the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic was attended by celebrities and friends of the brand including Penelope Cruz, Sienna Miller, Sam Rockwell, Freida Pinto, Laura Harrier, Darren Criss, Winnie Harlow, Coco Rocha, Sutton Foster, Marcc Rose, Jenny Mollen & Jason Biggs, Gayle King, Casey Cott, Susan Kelechi Watson, Grace Bol, Leigh Lezark, TK Quann, DJ Pamela and many more.

Veuve Clicquot proudly supported the Friends of Liberty State Park, an organization dedicated to keeping Liberty State Park a free, green, and non-commercial urban waterfront oasis and the official beneficiary of the annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic. The park is only a stone’s throw from the Statue of Liberty with sweeping views of the Manhattan skyline.

Actress and Broadway sensation Sutton Foster kicked off the day’s festivities with her striking rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner.” The ceremonial ball toss thrown in by Winnie Harlow was a great start to the polo match, while Coco Rocha stomped divots in style during half-time, cast mates Darren Criss and Penelope Cruz caught up over glasses of Veuve Clicquot and Sienna Miller & her Mom enjoyed some mother-daughter time during the match. Delfina Blaquier and Nacho Figueras made a great team both on and off the field, with Delfina being awarded MVP of the game and gifted a limited-edition timepiece from luxury watch brand Hublot.

Hublot served as the official timekeeper and scoreboard sponsor of the polo match, and also created eleven limited-edition timepieces named the Spirit of Big Bang. The watch includes two interchangeable straps—one in Veuve Clicquot Yellow alligator and the other in black alligator – and retails for $27,300 at the Hublot Fifth Avenue Boutique.

In celebration of 2018 marking the 200th anniversary of Veuve Clicquot creating the world’s first blended Rosé Champagne, Freida Pinto struck a pose as she cut into a Rosé-inspired cake in the VIP tent, designed and created by Chef Stephanie Nass, while glasses were filled with Veuve Clicquot Rosé from large format magnums. The 200th anniversary festivities continued in the Rosé Garden, where guests enjoyed glasses of Veuve Clicquot Rosé, gourmet lunch boxes, and premium views of the match from an exclusive and beautiful garden setting with open lounge seating.

Always a fan-favorite, guests sipped Veuve Clicquot Rich and Rich Rosé, the House’s Champagne offerings that are inspired by mixology and designed to be served over ice and mixed with fresh fruits, vegetables or herbs. The two specialty cocktails for this year’s event were the Clicquot Rich Classic and Clicquot Rich Rosé Twist, which feature cucumber and lime, respectively.

As a complement to Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label, Rosé, Rich and Rich Rosé Champagnes, guests enjoyed gourmet summer fare from some of the best food trucks in the city, including Red Hook Lobster Pound, Neapolitan Express, Chick Wings & Things, Zoelily Empanadas, Toum, Ponti Rossi, Yankee Doodle Dandy’s, Mobile Mardi Gras, Bona Bona, Carlitos Barbecue Taqueria, Gorilla Cheese, and more.
