Calling All Sports & Wine Enthusiasts! Join Us For A Special Tasting Event & Dinner on Wednesday 12 October
Sport has the unique capacity to bring people together, forming unbreakable bonds through camaraderie, enterprise and the pursuit of shared goals. Sporting Wine Club, founded by former England rugby international Simon Halliday and his business partner Chris Mariner, has bottled these values and created a platform where people with a passion for sport and wine are brought together to enjoy good company, sporting stories and great wine.
We are very excited to announce the date of our first event in collaboration with Sporting Wine Club at Lutyens, on Wednesday 12 October. The evening will comprise of an extended drinks reception in the wine bar, before a three course dinner and tasting lead by former South African rugby international Schalk Burger Senior.
Transitioning from the rugby world stage into wine production, Schalk is now a significant contributor to the South African wine trade and beyond. His Welbedacht Wine Farm is 40 minutes north of Cape Town and there are 18 different grape varieties being cultivated on some of the oldest soils in Africa's mainly decomposed granite; ideal for quality vine growing conditions.
All of Schalk’s wines come with a story, so come along and hear some of them whilst sampling the best bottles from his extensive range. If you are a sports or wine enthusiast, or simply looking to share an unforgettable evening in good company, this event is for you!
Arrivals from 6.45pm with the dinner and wine tasting starting at 7.30pm. Tickets are priced at £75 per person - £65 for Château Boundary and Lutyens Club members - and all ticket holders' names will go into a prize draw to win some very special signed merchandise, announced on the evening of the event!
