The family-owned company Baron Philippe de Rothschild and Ryder Cup Europe have formally announced Mouton Cadet as Official Wine of The 2018 Ryder Cup.
Founded in 1930 by the late Baron Philippe de Rothschild (1902 - 1988), Mouton Cadet is the world’s leading Bordeaux AOC wine. The goal of Baron Philippe was to market high-quality wine to a world of burgeoning quality-conscious, wine consumers. Mouton Cadet found instant success, and is now sold in 150 countries worldwide.
Speaking of the partnership with The Ryder Cup, grandson of the Baron, Philippe Sereys de Rothschild, who joined the two captains at the 2018 One Year to Go Celebrations, said:
“I am delighted that Mouton Cadet will be served as Official Wine at The 2018 Ryder Cup. Such a prestigious and well-known international golf competition is the perfect partner to Mouton Cadet which has a world-wide reputation for high quality wines.”
The 2018 Ryder Cup will be the 42nd in its history, and will be played on the Albatros Course of Le Golf National, Paris from 28th to 30th September 2018, with the United States team captained by Jim Furyk looking to retain the trophy they won at Hazeltine last year, while Europe captained by Thomas Bjørn will defend an unbeaten home record which stretches back to 1997.
It is the third Ryder Cup with which Mouton Cadet has associated itself, following the internationally recognised wine brand’s presence at the competitions in 2014 (Gleneagles, Scotland) and in 2016 (Hazeltine, Minnesota).
