Verité to sponsor Guards Polo Club
One of Jackson Family Wine’s leading labels, Verité, has been made the official red wine of the Guards Polo Club for the up-coming season.
The polo season runs from mid-April to mid-September and will host more than 500 matches in that time including the Queen’s Cup and Royal Windsor Cup tournaments.
The club is located in the heart of Windsor Great Park and Verité will be served in both the Royal Box and Clubhouse and will be available in the club’s marquees.
Barbara Banke, chairman and owner of Jackson Family Wines, commented: “I am delighted that Vérité will be the official red wine at the Guards Polo Club.
“Vérité is one of the jewels of my family’s portfolio, and we are thrilled to be offering these wines at this historic and prestigious club for its members and distinguished guests.”
Neil Hobday, chief executive of Guards Polo Club, added: “Guards Polo Club prides itself on creating the benchmark of world-class polo and elegant hospitality that others strive to follow. An integrated partnership with a prestigious wine brand such as Vérité is perfect as it will enable us to deliver unrivalled opportunities for our esteemed patrons, players and members.
“Barbara Banke and her team at Jackson Family Wines represent the same core values as Guards Polo Club. We look forward to working closely with them on introducing Vérité to our own distinguished audience.”
