Summer truly begins when Wimbledon takes centre court on the telebox. To get in the swing of things over the weekend Perfect Cellar became the proud sponsor of the London Tennis Classic, in association with children’s charity, Starlight. Our CEO, Moez, not only got to dine with the pros but had the wonderful opportunity to exchange a few shots on court with Tennis legends such as Venus Williams, Grigor Dimitrov, the Bryon Brothers and the amazing Ivan Lendl!
After a gruelling time on the court for the pros, Moez presented a perfect service of Loire Cremant for the aperitif followed by the producing champion of the Rioja Alta region, Bodegas Perica with Olagosa Blanco and Rioja Reserva 2008 to accompany an afternoon of tapas.
The afternoon was topped off with more than just love on the court, everyone who attended was gifted with our award winning Tendil & Lombardi Blanc de Noirs. And by lucky mistake we took a few too many along to the event! If you would like to raise a toast to the fantastic talent that will grace our screens over the next few week we’ll send out the Tendil Lombardi with a free gift bag and wrapping!
Moez has sadly hung up his racket for the tournament but has offered out our very own Jim Button from fine wine as ball boy!
If you’re planning on spending a lazy afternoon on Henman Hill this year take a look at our essential Wimbledon wines.
