Dom Prignon gets signed up

Published:  23 July, 2008

A bottle of 1996 Dom Prignon - signed by all the surviving members of the victorious 1966 World Cup team - will go under the hammer at Sotheby's in London next month.

All proceeds from the sale of the bottle on 10 May will go

to the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK, set up in honour of England's captain who died from bowel cancer aged just 51. The bottle has been released direct from Dom Prignon's oenethque and is estimated at 5,000-8,000.

Stephanie Moore, wife of the late England captain, said: This is a very special year for the charity as it marks the 40th anniversary of when Bobby captained the England team to the World Cup. I'm delighted that Dom Prignon and Sotheby's are supporting us.'
