i celebrated my ten year anniversary with my wife already two years ago (crazy right?), but like i said there is always a good reason to celebrate.

thelionheaded.com-moet_grandvintage (13 von 90)claude moët started to ship his wine from champagne to paris already in 1743. now it’s one the world’s largest expansive champagne producers. following the introduction of the concept of a vintage champagne in 1840, moët marketed it’s first vintage in 1842. a vintage wine is one made from grapes that were all, or primarily, grown and harvested in a single specified year.

thelionheaded.com-moet_grandvintage (20 von 90)thelionheaded.com-moet_grandvintage (23 von 90)thelionheaded.com-moet_grandvintage (28 von 90)the primary grapes used in the production of champagne are black pinot noir and pinot meunier but also white chardonnay.

thelionheaded.com-moet_grandvintage (30 von 90)thelionheaded.com-moet_grandvintage (25 von 90)thelionheaded.com-moet_grandvintage (54 von 90)to celebrate the special occasion of the “newest” grand vintage, we went to the park hyatt hotel in vienna. the hotel opened it’s the new bar “the bank brasserie & bar” just this month. there you can also get the limited edition by moët & chandon. but before going to the bar, we were provided a photography playground of 820 square meters – it was not only once we got lost in the endless rooms of the so called “royal penthouse suite”.

after exploring the suite (and it’s rooftop terrace), we changed location to the bar in the beautiful former historical bank building. a perfect place to really start the celebration.

to get a festive and well fitting suit i went to “sturm“, a classic menswear house in vienna with an outstanding service and knowledge of traditional style. i added a modern touch to the classic suit with a hat i bought during last year’s london fashion week and a cutout sweater by “carven”. sorry for not being properly dressed, mr. sturm ;)
