Chapel Down confirmed as lead partner for Saracens pre-season fixture at the HAC


Saracens are excited to announce that Chapel Down, the Kent based winery, have teamed up with the Premiership Champions as the lead partner for their pre-season clash at the Honourable Artillery Company (HAC).

England's leading winemaker and one of the UK's most exciting drinks companies, Chapel Down, produces a world-class range of sparkling and still wines, together with the award-winning range of Curious beers & cider. As well as being industry leaders in wine and beer in the UK, Chapel Down also launched an amazing gin last year, part-distilled from Bacchus grape skins from the 2017 harvest. A range of the Chapel Down wines and spirits and Curious beer will be available at the HAC on the 23rd August.

Home of Britain’s oldest Army regiment, the venue has been the home of a number Saracens pre-season fixtures since 2010 and this year will host what promises to be another memorable encounter as the Men in Black welcome Welsh side Ospreys. This year’s game also marks a first for Saracens in the City with the fixture being streamed live over the Saracens Facebook page as part of the club’s newly announced partnership with Give Me Sport.
