db’s editor-in-chief, Patrick Schmitt, headed to Lord’s cricket ground in St. Johns Wood this morning to meet cricketing legend Sir Ian Botham at the UK launch of his eponymous wine range.

At the entry-level is the ‘All Rounder’, with a mid-tier range called ‘The Botham Series’, then, at the top, priced between £35 and £40, is the ‘Sir Ian Botham’ range, available exclusively through Berry Bros & Rudd.

The grapes for the wines come from Adelaide Hills and Margaret River for the Chardonnays, and Barossa and Coonawarra for the Shirazes and Cabernets respectively. The wines have been developed in partnership with Benchmark Drinks, founded earlier this year by former Accolade Wines CEO Paul Schaafsma.
