The first ever Women in Wine fundraising event from Wooden Spoon London held in November celebrated the role women play in producing your favourite reds, whites and rosés. Hosted by England rugby legend, Harlequins Ladies centre and Wooden Spoon Ambassador, Rachael Burford. The evening was an opportunity to celebrate the wonderful wines created by talented female winemakers from around the world. Guests, including Claire Purdy, former England and Wasps, were entertained by award-winning UK journalist and Saturday Kitchen Live wine expert Jane Parkinson, who educated the gathering on a selection of seven fine wines.
Rachael spoke passionately of the power of rugby to transform lives, as it did her own, and of her historic World Cup encounters with England.
The evening linked a passion for supporting children and young people with disabilities or facing disadvantage with the passions and love that people have for wine and the passion that surrounds the amazing game of rugby.
