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.

Mike Brown & Jaguar Land Rover Event


Sporting Wine Club came to Thames Ditton recently to conduct a wine tasting with our friends from Jaguar Land Rover.

Other than seeing their new Jaguar release – top quality just like our wines! – we were privileged to spend the evening with Harlequins and England Fullback, Mike Brown.

We enjoyed a fascinating insight into what makes England tick, and how under Eddie Jones the squad has emerged as Rugby World Cup contenders. With a few stories from the past from our very own Hallers, it was a lovely evening with our 4 rugby winemakers in evidence – from Italy, South Africa (x2) and France.

Francesco Cosulich, Jacky Lorenzetti, Schalk Burger and Simon and Holly Turner would have loved Mike to sample their vintages but he is in full training and was able only to admire from a distance and appreciate the bouquet. Next time!
 
Many thanks to David Edwards and Richard Varney from JLR who organised the evening.

M Restaurant Twickenham Launch


Sporting Wine Club had the great privilege to help launch M Twickenham which is only a quick sprint to the home of English Rugby.  
We have always wondered when it would be possible to enjoy a steak and bottle of good wine in relative comfort but within easy reach of the rugby. The Car Park or a frighteningly expensive corporate event is not for everyone and here we have a wonderful place to enjoy, both pre and post match, just opposite Twickenham railway station.
 
We had in attendance Gary Rees and David Pears, Rugby Internationals of yesteryear when England won two Grand Slams. Also Simon Shaw, legendary England Second Row forward.
A great evening was washed down with quality Sporting Wines provided by our Rugby winemakers. Schalk Burger, Francesco Cosulich, Simon and Holly Turner, Jacky Lorenzetti and Emmanuel Cruse are all wonderful representatives of our club combining wine, sport and charity.
 
We are delighted that M Twickenham is stocking some of our wines, and we look forward to a wonderful few rugby months ahead.
 
Chris and Simon
