The Champagne House Unveils a Keepsake Set
for Brides and Grooms


April 5, 2010

The Dom Perignon Wedding set includes a white lacquered keepsake box holding a bottle of the Vintage 2000 Champagne
Champagne house Dom Pérignon recently introduced Dom Pérignon Wedding—a set of twelve bottles of Dom Pérignon Vintage 2000 that also comes with a white lacquered box holding an additional bottle of the Champagne. The thirteenth bottle is adorned with a unique silver label, which can be personalized by the bride and groom with their name and wedding date.

Dom Pérignon unveiled this new product to an audience of tastemakers at an exclusive private lunch at the LVMH Tower in New York City. Guests including fashion designers Georgina Chapman (aka Mrs. Harvey Weinstein), Nicole Miller, and Reem Acra were treated to Dom Pérignon Vintage 2000, as well as a very special dessert presentation from chef Daniel Boulud—individual mini wedding cakes in beautiful colors and designs.

A never before seen photograph that Karl Lagerfeld took of model Claudia Schiffer is being released by Dom Pérignon as part of the ad campaign. Schiffer (who was unable to attend the launch event due to her pregnancy) had celebrated her own wedding with Dom Pérignon Champagne, as did many other celebrities including Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes; Beyonce and Jay-Z; and Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony.

An elegant and memorable keepsake for couples getting married, Dom Pérignon Wedding is available for purchase by special order at New York’s Crush Wine & Spirits for around $2,080 (online at www.crushwineco.com), and at other fine wine stores nationwide.
