Swap the slopes of ‘Murray Mound’ for London’s highest viewpoint during this year’s tennis Championships. To celebrate Wimbledon 2014 The View from The Shard will be screening matches live whilst serving Champagne Lanson’s limited edition Championships bottle and strawberries and cream flavoured Häagen-Dazs ice cream throughout the tournament.

From Monday 23 June – Sunday 6 July guests who make a purchase from London’s highest champagne bar will have the chance to enter a prize draw for a Champagne Lanson limited edition Championships bottle / magnum] every time a British player wins a match.

Created by Champagne Lanson to celebrate another year as The Official Champagne Supplier to The Championships, Wimbledon and inspired by the game itself, the eye catching design gives the bottle the appearance of the iconic tennis ball, whilst the neoprene jacket keeps the champagne at the perfect temperature to enjoy.

Completing the atmosphere for the final week of the tournament, the highest accessible point of the building Level 72 will go green, decked in astroturf to mimic the famous lawn courts. If Andy Murray takes the title on 6 July, all guests visiting The View at that moment will receive a free glass of champagne to celebrate.

The House of Champagne Lanson
For more than 250 years, the House of Lanson and its expert winemakers have been crafting fine champagne using the traditional method. Family run since 1760 and one of the oldest existing champagne houses, Lanson has carefully perfected its art, resulting in an impressive and diverse range of quality champagnes.

Passed down from generation to generation our long-standing traditions, including aging for at least 3 years, ensures every bottle is aged gracefully and shows the unique Lanson style.  All this waiting certainly pays off as every bottle is crisp, fresh and zesty, with exceptional fruit purity and a perfect start to any occasion, from your aperitif to the end of the evening.
