Rituals

Sabrage

Dating back to the battles of Napoleon Bonaparte, who famously opened champagne with his saber in both victory and defeat, the art of sabrage has become a signature ceremony in our Evening Rituals series. St. Regis performs this traditional ceremony at sunset to celebrate a day on the polo field or to welcome new guests.

"Champagne: in victory, one deserves it; in defeat, one needs it."

– NAPOLEON
