And finally…

Sir Winston Churchill’s wise words continue to ring true for so many eventualities. The following quote from the famed champagne drinker seems apt for the blood, sweat and tears that goes with horses…

“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”

Stock up the fridge this summer with Pol Roger Brut Reserve blended from 30 still base wines from different vineyards, different vintages and the three main grape varieties which dominate the champagne region: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier.

Look out for the Limited Edition Gatcombe Park and Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials gift box available at Waitrose, Amazon, Majestic and Independent Retailers, whilst stocks last.
