Doddies Red Blend

Doddie’5 Red Blend

We are very excited to now have stock of ‘Doddie’5 Red Blend’ to enjoy at home or in Whighams!  


Simon Halliday, co-founder of Sporting Wine Club, jumped at the chance to work with the Foundation and Kenny Logan of Logan Sports Marketing to kick off a unique fundraising initiative. Combining two of Doddie’s greatest passions – rugby and wine – the idea for ‘Doddie’5 Red Blend’ was born.

They approached Schalk Burger & Sons, a legendary Springbok family, and one of the leading Sporting Winemaker’s at the Sporting Wine Club, from their amazing Welbedacht Estate, in South Africa, to see if they could mix a traditional Bordeaux blend with 5 grape varieties, representing Doddie’s shirt. In imitable style, they have produced a real winner.

To top it all off, renowned mouth painter and former academy player at Saracens, Henry Fraser, has designed the label. A freak accident in 2009 left Henry paralysed from the shoulders down and he has since found a new path with his remarkable ‘mouth-painting’ artwork.
