Vancouver, May 21, 2014 — Veuve Clicquot is proud to announce the Vancouver launch of Yelloweek, a festival-style ‘tribute to creativity’ showcasing gastronomy, arts, fashion and lifestyle.
Taking place from May 22-24 inclusive, Vancouverites are invited to explore and enjoy a series of creatively-inspired events spanning several categories, including: Yellow TABLE, Yellow BY THE GLASS, Yellow NIGHT and Yellow CONTEST.
Veuve Clicquot’s Yelloweek was created as a tribute to artists and artisans who push the boundaries of their respective creative fields every day much like Madame Clicquot did in her time. Overcoming countless obsta- cles, la veuve (the widow) Clicquot became one of the most successful women entrepreneurs of the 19th century and built a worldwide luxury brand, founded on artisan practices and uncompromising quality.
“Yelloweek reflects the legendary qualities of the Maison and the ‘joie de vivre’ the brand is known for around the world,” said Stephane de Meurville, general manager of Moët Hennessy Canada. “Festival-goers will experience the true essence of the Veuve Clicquot world – taste, innovation, glamour, refinement, celebration, heritage and zeste de folie.”
Events taking place throughout Vancouver include:
Yellow TABLE: an exquisite series of Champagne pairing dinners at some of Vancouver’s most iconic and innovative restaurants, including: Brix, Reflections and Oru
Yellow BY THE GLASS:Special Veuve Clicquot pricing will be offered at various restaurants, including: Reflections and Pacific Rim
Yellow NIGHT: an unforgettable late-night party at Cabana featuring DJ Marco Petralia will embody the zeste de folie spirit of Veuve Clicquot
Yellow CONTEST: an opportunity to take home a little piece of sunshine. Coal Harbour Liquor Store and Legacy Liquor Store will be offering a chance to win a beautiful Veuve Clicquot bicycle
