Stannary St Wine Co.'s 10 year anniversary rowing adventure
Stannary St Wine Co. rowing day
We thamed the Thames as part of our 10 year anniversary celebrations this June.
Before hitting the water at the London Rowing Club in Putney, we had to follow a rigorous training schedule on our office rowing machine, instructed by our trainer Jean-Pierre van Tiel, who twice participated in the World Championships for rowing.
On the big day our 8-seater boat was manned by our director Sam Clarke as well as Caroliné Brange, Victoire de Ganay, Emily Jackson and Anja Breit from our Stannary team. Jean-Pierre van Tiel himself and Marcus Williams (who participated no less than 10 times in the world Championships from 1983 to 1993!) supported us in the boat. The 5k row was a great team effort, and we can now say that we are adept rowers as well as wine merchants!
Our efforts were even featured in The Drinks Business "This Week in Pictures"!
Of course wine wasn’t entirely missing and the Magnum of 2011 St-Aubin 1er Cru Les Charmois from Paul Pillot was the perfect aperitif at the boat house afterwards.
