Guests are guaranteed an afternoon of pleasure with a perfectly-chilled flute of champagne in hand while the riveting 10-goal polo tournament will showcase the skill of the country's top international-level players.

As a highlight on the South African social calendar for the fifth year, this day of splendor is set to take place in the Paarl-Franschhoek Valley at South Africa’s first and only wine and polo estate – Val de Vie Estate, on Saturday 7 March 2015.

Veuve Clicquot is internationally recognised for its long association with polo and sponsors some of the world’s leading polo events such as the UK’s Gold Cup, USA’s Manhattan Polo Classic and LA Polo Classic.

Drawing inspiration from polo’s global presence, the Veuve Clicquot Masters Polo Cape Town is now one of Cape Town’s most anticipated events and the only one of its kind on the African continent.

Fashion aficionados can look forward to a carefully curated luxury experience as they gather on the scenic estate’s clubhouse terraces to marvel at models revealing chic summer outfits.
