Sporting Wine Club Corner At Voltaire

As we build our relationship with the Chinese Cricket Club Restaurant and the Crowne Plaza, we are thrilled to announce that we now have our very own Sporting Wine Club corner.
The Voltaire Bar one floor down from the CCC has been converted into a sporting world where you can watch live matches, browse sporting books or indeed read up on the narrative of the Sporting Winemakers and their amazing vineyards, accompanied by some examples of the many wines they produce. 
Come and visit, enjoy the sporting ambience in what is now our home from home. 

Exclusive Suppliers to Chinese Cricket Club

We are delighted to announce that we are now the exclusive suppliers of wine to the Chinese Cricket Club in Blackfriars. This relationship has developed over the summer and the customers of this wonderful restaurant have all voted with their palates to justify the stocking of all our wines. It is a wonderful moment for Sporting Wine Club in our early development and many of our members have already been to the restaurant, either for a wine tasting or to sample their fantastic cuisine.

Here is a snapshot of some of our wines but they are all there on the list.

We would like to thank Paul, Evaldas, Hang and all the team at Chinese Cricket Club for their support and enthusiastic backing of our company and everything it stands for.

Please support us and Chinese Cricket Club by spending some time there enjoying great food, wine and great company in a classical and City sporting atmosphere.

Sporting Wine Club Introduces “Tara” by Sumaridge Estate Wines

Apart from their love of sporting charities and support for African Township rugby, Sumaridge Wine Estate owners Simon and Holly have been big donors to Elephant Charities over the years and so branded their wonderful Rosé in the name of Tara, the legendary Asian Elephant.

Our exclusive partnership with the Chinese Cricket Club Restaurant in Blackfriars started last week, as does their  firm commitment to our Tara!

It was fitting that I met with Hugh Wilson, ex Surrey fast bowler, Chairman of Lloyds Cricket and SWC member, to sample the first bottle of Tara Rosé to be opened at Chinese Cricket Club. A spring like sunny day was a perfect accompaniment and we look forward to a summer of Sporting Wine with Lloyds Cricket as well as a few runs, wickets and victories along the way.

You may have spotted the Moulin D’Issan (our best selling Bordeaux Blend) in the corner of the picture to celebrate Jacky Lorenzetti’s Racing 92 victory over Clermont in the quarter finals of the European Rugby’s Champions Cup.

To celebrate both this victory and the Tara branding please enjoy a 15% discount on both of these lovely wines.  Please contact either Alex or Michelle to place your orders.
