Announcing the Sporting Wine Club & Caldy Rugby Club Partnership

Sporting Wine Club is proud to announce that it has become the wine partner to Caldy Rugby Club who have just won promotion to National League One. They will be hosting some of England’s most famous names such as Rosslyn Park and Blackheath.

 I travelled up to the Wirral for the Caldy Sevens a couple of weeks ago to introduce both myself and the wines.  The Meerkat range and the Welbedacht Estate Wines of Schalk Burger went down well, especially the Chenin Blanc and the Cabernet Sauvignon. The Sumaridge Maritimus was a favourite, aptly named as the picturesque ground overlooks the sea. Many people sampled and loved the Collalbrigo Pinot Grigio.

 Many of our other wines were on display and will be sold through the year at Caldy Rugby.

 Sadly, one of their young former players Billy Woof was injured recently and due to complications had a lower leg amputation. I engaged in some spontaneous fundraising, auctioning off some “Weight in Wine” prizes and an exclusive winetasting event plus tickets for next years European Rugby Finals in Bilbao.

This combined with a donation from Wasps Legends via Peter Scrivener raised more than £6,000 – the least we could do but again one of the reasons we belong to Sporting Wine Club.

Good luck Billy in your recovery.
