Sports and booze – it’s not normally a good mix. Except when sportpeople move into making the stuff. Vijay Armitraj, whom we’ve spoken to elsewhere on this site, launched a couple of wines from India, likewise golfers: Bernie Els, makes very good wines, Greg Norman is making wines in Nappa and now Sir Nick Faldo has joined the throng, putting his name on a range of wines, celebrating the countries of his major wins. The wines were put together by Milton Sandford Wines and were launched with RandR Teamwork at Searcy’s Urban Coterie in London.
We went to meet Sir Nick and check out the wines, which were really excellent!
