Champagne Pommery announced as Champagne partner of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show

Champagne Pommery has been announced as the official Champagne sponsor of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, which is set to take place from 24-28 May.

This spring visitors to the much-loved RHS Chelsea Flower Show will be able to enjoy the additional pleasure of sipping from a glass of Champagne Pommery while taking in the topiary.

Vranken Pommery sees itself as a natural partner for the show, highlighting its commitment to sustainability and plans to turn its Champagne vineyards to organic viticulture.

Julien Lonneux, CEO of Vranken Pommery UK, commented on the announcement:

We are delighted to have been selected as the Champagne Sponsor for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, an iconic event in the London calendar and a champion of the environmental benefits of gardening.  Our group is proud of its work at the forefront of sustainable development in the world of viticulture and it was the sustainability strategy of the RHS that really resonated with us.”

Helena Pettit, RHS Director of Gardens and Shows added:

We are delighted to welcome Champagne Pommery to this year’s RHS Chelsea, as we return to our usual spring dates in May. This year’s show is filled with stunning gardens and an abundance of wildlife-friendly planting, with designers’ offering ideas that address how we can all play our part in sustainability through planet-friendly gardening.”

A Pommery bar will serve glasses of Pommery Brut Royal or Louis Pommery England, which guests can enjoy while taking in the beautiful gardens.
