We seen quite a few sponsorship proposals in our time, but never one from a polo team. And we’re not aware either of how many polo teams around the world are sponsored by a winery, or wine brand, but there is a fair chance that Dombeya is now one of a select few.
That’s because our brand is now emblazoned across the jerseys of the Dombeya Polo Team, who play most of their matches in the south of France around St Tropez. Allesandro, the captain, approached Preston about sponsoring his team, and as they say, the rest is history.
At their last tournament two weeks ago the Dombeya team came second, beaten by a goal right at the death, so at least we know that these guys have some legs underneath them. Now, we’ll be the first to say that we’re still brushing up on the rules of the noble game, but stay tuned to Dombeya wines for updates and some polo ‘tidbits’ as the months pass!
