The Sporting Wine Club is a members’ club founded by Ex-England rugby player and current Chairman of European Professional Club Rugby, Simon Halliday and his business partner Chris Mariner.

Having both spent the last two decades travelling around the world, sampling great wines produced by sporting personalities, they decided the time had come to combine their love of sport with a wine adventure. They wanted to share the unique wines they had become so passionate about – each one telling their own sporting story – with their friends back home and beyond. Thus the concept for the Sporting Wine Club was born!

SWC is a members’ club with a difference; there is no membership fee – instead our members accrue a sporting wine credit throughout the year – and members have the opportunity to attend exclusive events with sporting personalities. We pride ourselves on getting to know our members and welcoming them to our team. Membership packages are tailored for both individuals and corporates, offering numerous benefits.

We are committed to supporting the sporting community at large and therefore profit from all tiers of membership is distributed between our winemaker’s chosen sporting charities.

Sport has the unique capacity to bring people together, forming unbreakable bonds through camaraderie, enterprise and the pursuit of shared goals. At The Sporting Wine Club, we have bottled these values and created a platform where people with a passion for sport, wine and charity are brought together to enjoy good company, sporting stories and great wine.
