SA’s premier luxury polo portfolio is the brainchild of two dynamic South African business women: Simone De Wet (the MD of Val de Vie Events) and Anina Malherbe-Lan (the CEO of VIVIDLUXURY), who have over the past 8 years, together with their team of talented female communications and events experts, built up a formidable luxury polo events portfolio.


Simone and Anina met during 2008 when the pair worked together on the marketing rebrand for Val de Vie Estate. It was during this time that the two powerhouse women conceptualized the introduction of a new international-standard polo event to South Africa – the Veuve Clicquot Masters Polo Cape Town – now in its 7th year, and renowned around the world.
