We’ve all been there, transfixed as the sun dips down to the horizon, setting the sky ablaze with luminosity, faces basking in the light. “That moment of anticipation, when the day is nearly behind you and the potential of the night lies ahead, symbolised by a magical golden glow - if that’s not worth raising a glass to, what is?” asks David White, General Manager of Moët & Chandon, South Africa & Middle East.

Indeed, if life’s most joyful moments aren’t honoured with a glass of champagne, is it even a celebration? Since 1743, we’ve come to associate Moët & Chandon with extraordinary milestones and triumphs, precious moments, and celebrations big and small. Its bubbles charging up to burst at the surface, the iconic clink that sounds the cheers, that quintessential “pop” of the cork - it’s no wonder that this effervescent drink, so full of life and ebullience, is the one that we all choose when raising a glass.
