Matt Stevens and Dave Strettle, two former England rugby legends, hosted a fantastic rugby 7s festival at Allianz Park in North London. They invited SWC to bring along their wine selection, mainly Schalk Burger vintages, which were enjoyed by all. Special feature was the Sparkling white ‘Mon Rene’, named after Schalk Snr’s daughter. It was the runaway winner on a hot afternoon. SWC made a donation from the day’s sales to the School of Hard Knocks charity (SOHK) at Matt and Dave’s request.
“It was great to welcome the Sporting Wine Club to Sevens and the City. Dave Strettle and I were grateful for their support on the day and everyone loved their wines. We know that they made a healthy donation from the wine sales to the School of Hard Knocks and we thank them of their commitment to rugby charities. They also helped us get a large consignment of Willow Water from Halewood which on the day was really appreciated. They really do care about sporting communities and we hope they come again next year!”
