SWC tasting at Saracens in support of the ‘Life After Rugby’ programme


The Rugby world, especially Saracens, is awaiting the arrival of Schalk Burger, one of the stand out players in the RWC, to see out his career at Allianz Park. What better moment for the Sporting Wine Club team to showcase some of Schalk’s Welbedacht and Meerkat wines.

Schalk’s Hat Trick and sparkling Mon Rene  unsurprisingly scored the winning tries!

With 50% of the profit going towards the Life After Rugby Programme (link to Charity Page), England star Chr

is Ashton was there to lend his support, as was Marketing Director Hugh Vyvyan, also an Ex England player.

A fine Sarries win topped off the day, and it was a red letter day for our young business, in debuting at Europe’s top club right now. We shall be back!

“We at Saracens were delighted to welcome the Sporting Wine Club to Allianz Park for the Exeter match. We tasted fantastic wines, made even tastier for the fact that 50% of the profits from wine sales are going to the Life After Rugby programme, a cause very dear to our hearts.”
Hugh Vyvyan, Sales Director, Saracens & Ex-England International
