It was a landmark weekend for Sporting Wine Club.
Saracens v Harlequins was the first Premiership Rugby match to be played at the London Olympic Stadium, in front of 57,000 people, with Schalk Burger on the pitch and his family’s wine available off it. Sporting Wine Club was proud to be represented in such an Iconic stadium, and this represents another milestone in our development into Sporting stadia.
The Meerkat Chenin Banc and Bohemian Syrah were in particular demand although it’s always tough to choose between the 4 high quality offerings – the Meerkat Pinotage Rose and the Welbedacht Hat Trick went down very well too.
In recognition of the Sarries win which keeps them near the top of the Premiership, these are our rugby wines of the week and will attract a 15% discount for any two case orders or more. Please contact email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org to place your order.
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.
