Cipriani Bellini Arrives In Harrods!


There can be no more prestigious name in UK Retailing than Harrods. It’s long history and reputation for excellence goes without saying and few people know that their origins date back to Borough High Street in 1824 a far cry from the world leading brand that it is today.

Sporting Wine Club are delighted to have introduced the classic Cipriani Original Bellini to the Wine Hall at Harrods.  Mirroring their long history and rise to excellence – originally created in Harry’s Bar Venice in 1948 – the exceptional quality of the Cipriani Bellini is today recognised by Harrods for acceptance into their respected Wine Hall, which offers only the best luxury products from world-leading brands.

We are confident that our Bellini, already a firm favourite with the membership of SWC, will assume a prominent position further afield.

Thank you Harrods, your confidence in us is appreciated and we look forward to a long association.

We are delighted to be partnering with Queenswood Restaurant in Battersea Square, London, supplying them with Bellini from our winemaker Francesco Cosulich, childhood friend of Giuseppe Cipriani who invented the Bellini in Harry’s Bar Venice, in 1948.

Queenswood is a neighbourhood restaurant and bar serving plates for sharing, light dishes and wholesome meals, best washed down with a glass of Bellini, one of their cocktails or a great glass of wine.

SWC & CSM – Corporate Christmas Wine Tasting


SWC had the great privilege to host a pre Christmas Wine Tasting evening at CSM, one of the top global Sports and Entertainment Agencies.
 
Holly Millward, a CSM executive, had won the occasion at an RPA rugby charity auction event for which we were all grateful.
 
We intertwined a blind tasting of some top rugby wines with CSM’s People Awards 2017 which was very entertaining, topped off with a fond farewell message to Holly who is taking on a senior role in Asia soon.
 
We sent everyone home with a bottle of the unique, original Bellini which was mixed by Guiseppe Cipriani himself at Harry’s Bar in Venice and supplied to SWC by Francesco Cosulich, ex Treviso rugby player, who owns the Collalbrigo Estate.
 
Other much enjoyed rugby wines were Schalk Burger’s Chenin Blanc, Jacky Lorenzetti’s Moulin D’Issan and Sumaridge Estates Sparkling Wayfarer and Pinot Noir.
 
We hope to work again with CSM during 2018 for more sporting wine occasions.
