Donald Trump, new Moët&Chandon owner

Donald TrumpAmerican billionaire Donald Trump has acquired, in a lightning operation, 99% of the shares of the House of Moët & Chandon Champagne cellar.

Apparently, the new owner´s purpose is to transplant the vines, from Champagne to Napa Valley, so the famous champagne cellar would be the first winery to “physically” change his nationality.

This is not such a new idea, before that Mr. Trump had bought a French château to move it, stone by stone, to Las Vegas. Now that seems a more delicate operation, because they are living plants that require time to adapt to a different climate and weather conditions.

To arrange the transfer, Donald Trump has purchased a fleet of sailing boats, because, according to the winemakers, “the vibration of the engines of a conventional ship or plane could affect plants. “

The 2011 vintage, then, could be the first producin’ a Moet Chandon Rose Magnum produced in Napa Valley, United States, instead of Champagne, France.
