Dear Winemakers, Investors, Members & Supporters,
What a year 2017 has been! As we approach the season of goodwill, Sporting Wine Club would like to wish you heartfelt happiness as you spend time with family and friends. Hopefully with a glass of sporting wine to hand.
It is too much to reflect on the past 12 months as we all have some last minute Christmas shopping to do but here is a snapshot.
We take great pride in all the sporting and other charities we have helped this year, to the tune of more than £100,000 at the last count.Thanks to all those who have made that happen, whether buying wine, bidding in auctions or supplying the opportunity. You know who you are!
We continue to build membership, supply events and stadia, grow relationships with restaurants and bars who fit our objectives.
Bringing in sporting wines from New Zealand is our latest move – watch this space – and I am investigating another sporting spirit!
While there are many other strategies which we will pursue as time allows, for now I just want to say a big thank you from Chris and I and all of the team, Michelle, Alex, Rob and Rachel!
To our winemakers and suppliers, your wines are feted and celebrated wherever we go ,and your vision and values resonate.
To our members and supporters, we would not be here without you! Please stay involved and help us grow.
Lastly, please stay safe and have a happy and peaceful break.
We look forward to a successful 2018, and where there is sport, charity and friendship you will hopefully find the Sporting Wine Club!
Chris and Simon
