VIRTUAL EVENT DETAILS
Date: Wednesday 19 May 2021
Time: 18:00 – 19:00 GMT
Speakers: Nicolas Ricome (Chateau de Valcombe), Bismark du Plessis (The RugbyField Vineyard)
We are thrilled to invite you to a very special virtual event on Wednesday the 19th of May at 6PM, introducing a new partnership with the RugbyField Vineyard.
We first heard of Chateau de Valcombe from Richie Gray, rugby coach par excellence and based at Montpellier. Imagine our excitement when we heard that the Springbok legend and Rugby World Cup Winner, Bismarck du Plessis, had linked up with Nicolas Ricome the vineyard owner to erect a set of rugby posts in the winery and mark out a pitch on which the vines would be grown.
From these very vines they have made a RugbyField Vineyard Wine which they have named La Grande Melee (The Great Scrum). They aim to replicate this model around the world in the best wine-growing and rugby-playing countries. We are so excited to partner with them on this. There is also some Scottish Malt Whisky in the mix which is very exciting, based on the same model.
Meanwhile, the wine itself, see below, is on its way to the UK and we have a modest allocation. A beautiful Syrah/Grenache awaits you and just look at that branding. Everything to suit the SWC values.
The vineyard supports a local charity Oeuvre des Pompiers, which looks after bereaved children and families of fire-fighters in the South of France. One of them died recently fighting a fire on the Vineyard. £4 per bottle will go to that charity as donated by us and the vineyard.
Please tune into Bismarck as he tells his story and also prepares for a European Final at Twickenham for Montpellier against Leicester on Friday 21st. It will be a fascinating hour.
Please do join us and let us know your attendance asap.
We look forward to seeing you!
