Viva Riva

    Italian boating company Riva has teamed with Veuve Clicquot champagne to create champagne travel cases worthy of any excursion at sea. Veuve Clicquot’s prestige cuvée, called La Grande Dame, will accompany two new boating accessories for entertaining on the fly. A limited-edition, hand-crafted mahogany, chrome, and leather cruiser bag ($425) will include a bottle of La Grande Dame 1998 and two champagne flutes. A made-to-measure trunk ($80,000) is designed to fit snugly into the back of your boat and will include four bottles of La Grande Dame 1998, two magnums of La Grande Dame 1988, and enough champagne flutes, water tumblers, plates, table mats, and cutlery for six. The trunk and bag may become part of your onboard necessities, but the champagne will most likely disappear the moment it arrives. (www.veuveclicquot.com)
