Graham Gooch Members Event


Sporting Wine Club hosted Graham Gooch and his winemaker Nick Kent recently at the Chinese Cricket Club Restaurant. On show were his Syrah, Viognier and Rosé – these three special wines are well named  as the 333 range, celebrating his record score against India all those years ago.

There were many cricketers in attendance plus our usual sprinkling of Rugby Internationals. Graham gave us special insight into the recently announced Alistair Cook retirement as well as relaying his passion for wine.

Pictures tell a story so please enjoy this, also the newly constructed Sporting Wine Club Corner downstairs in the Voltaire Bar, which is now covering big sporting events on a series of TV Screens. An ideal place to share wine and sporting stories – and is why SWC feel it is a home from home. Thanks to the Crowne Plaza team who have made it possible.
