Vintage Ashes cricket likened to 2005 and your chance to meet Matthew Hoggard

What a summer!!!! We have had our minds on wine throughout of course but the current Ashes series has English hearts racing and chests filled with legitimate pride! Not since 2005, when we saw the return of cricket’s most-prized award after too long an absence, has the nation felt so inspired by our ‘men in white’.

The 2005 squad legends included Flintoff, Strauss, Vaughan and Hoggard, in ten years time will 2015’s Broad, Bairstow and Root be lauded in similar fashion?  

Of course we cannot help making the parallel between wine and cricket – 2005 a stellar vintage for Bordeaux, as recently ratified by Parker’s rescore, and England Cricket’s Ashes Vanquish! With the 2015 harvest weeks away – could we possibly be on the verge of another Superstar Vintage in cricket and wine?

Our own alliance with the cricketing world has been further strengthened this summer with our involvement with the Wormsley Estate, the Oxfordshire home of the Getty family and one of the most beautiful cricket grounds in the world.
