In honor of Roger Federer’s 20th anniversary as a record-breaking tennis champion, luxury champagne house Moët & Chandon has created an exclusive collection of Grand Vintage magnum bottles inspired by the tennis pro.
The limited edition release bottles are designed and wrapped in a vintage leather racket grip. When the leather is unraveled, a label hand-signed and numbered by Roger, who Moët & Chandon proudly calls “the greatest tennis player ever” is revealed.
“I love the strong, elegant design,” says Federer. “Plus, the Grand Vintage Collection 1998 wine in the bottle is an amazing champagne. But beyond the personal pride I get from this event and the beautiful bottle, I am thrilled that Moët & Chandon has generously committed to donating all profits from the sale of the limited edition bottles to the Roger Federer Foundation. This donation is important because it stands for the generosity of the House, and helps us meet the goal of bringing education to 1 million underprivileged children in Southern Africa and Switzerland.”
The celebration of Federer’s tennis career comes as an extension of his collaboration with the brand, after in 2012 he became a brand ambassador for Moët & Chandon.

“It’s more than just an honor to be Moët & Chandon’s brand ambassador, it’s an invitation to be part of a very glamorous tradition. Moët & Chandon has always been the champagne of international trendsetters and I’m proud to be part of a brand that is as dedicated to the pursuit of excellence as I have been throughout my career.”
Hot stamped in gold on the inside of every bottle’s tie, is Roger’s personal message: “Dreams do come true,” which were the words he used to celebrate becoming the world’s #1 tennis player.
There are only 20 1.5L bottles of the celebration Moët Grand Vintage Collection 1998 available worldwide at $24,000 each. The collection will be made-to-order through Moët Hennessy‘s boutique on July 1, with all profits benefiting the Roger Federer Foundation, which supports educations projects in the region of southern Africa and Switzerland.
