I have had a lot of fun with the Williams F1 team. Especially once when it carried the red maple leaf of Canada part of the logo of the Canadian beer company Labatt’s, those were great racing years and the CEO of Labbat’s and I had a lot of fun with Frank Williams and his formula one team.
So I am delighted having tasted Veuve Clicquot champagne at the Ritz Carlton Toronto, with the owner of Charton Hobbs who look after both brands in Canada and enter the paddocks where Dom Pérignon will be flowing for the Williams F1 team.
The partnership will lead to an exclusive tasting event at the Silverstone circuit on the Saturday of the British Grand Prix weekend.
“The event will see a selection of Dom Pérignon vintages being tasted by VIP guests along with an explanation of each vintage by Richard Geoffrey, Creator of Vintages at Dom Pérignon. Each vintage will also correspond with a key moment in Williams’ history, with a host of former Williams World Champions in attendance.”
What is cool is that some of the drivers in attendance I had the late Sid Oland CEO of Labbat’s sponsor. I am not one to drink champagne on special occasions, anytime is good for me, but this is one very special occasion and a great champagne one of my favorites to celebrate Williams and Dom Pérignon history. I will toast to Sid Oland who was as passionate about formula one racing allowing me to share in the special moments that make up part of the history of the Williams F1 racing team we shared with Frank Williams.
