Graham Gooch Members Event

Sporting Wine Club hosted Graham Gooch and his winemaker Nick Kent recently at the Chinese Cricket Club Restaurant. On show were his Syrah, Viognier and Rosé – these three special wines are well named  as the 333 range, celebrating his record score against India all those years ago.

There were many cricketers in attendance plus our usual sprinkling of Rugby Internationals. Graham gave us special insight into the recently announced Alistair Cook retirement as well as relaying his passion for wine.

Pictures tell a story so please enjoy this, also the newly constructed Sporting Wine Club Corner downstairs in the Voltaire Bar, which is now covering big sporting events on a series of TV Screens. An ideal place to share wine and sporting stories – and is why SWC feel it is a home from home. Thanks to the Crowne Plaza team who have made it possible.

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.
