Majestic named wine supplier to Ben Ainslie's America's Cup team

Published:  26 August, 2015

Majestic has been named as the official wine supplier to the team headed by Ben Ainslie that is aiming to win the America's Cup for Britain in 2017.

The three-year sponsorship deal with Ainslie's Land Rover BAR team will see Majestic supply red and white wine to the team's hospitality areas during America's Cup events.

English wine producer Nyetimber already has a deal in place to supply fizz to the team.

Majestic has branches in Havant, Southampton and Chichester, within striking distance of BAR's base in Portsmouth.

Jo Grindley, head of commercial, marketing, communications and events for BAR, said: "It is great news that Majestic has joined us as official wine supplier.

"Majestic is one of the most recognisable specialist wine retailers in the country and we're really pleased to have their support.

"We look forward to working with the teams in our local Majestic stores."
