Our Curious Case is a monthly enigma. This month's Curious Case is a mystery to be unveiled upon arrival.

The Ultimate Rugby World Cup Wine Case: A North vs South Hemisphere Showdown

The 2023 Rugby World Cup is just around the corner, and fans from all over the world are gearing up for the big event. Whether you’re supporting your home team or just enjoying the spectacle of the game, there’s no better way to celebrate than with a case of wine.

This month, we’ve put together a special case of wine that celebrates the rivalry between the northern and southern hemispheres. The case includes three wines from each hemisphere, each with its own unique flavour profile and story to tell.

The rivalry between the northern and southern hemispheres in rugby is one of the most intense in all sports. The two regions have produced some of the greatest teams and players in the game’s history, and the competition between them is always fierce.

In recent years, the southern hemisphere has had the upper hand, winning the last three rugby World Cups. However, the northern hemisphere is not to be underestimated, and they will be looking to reclaim the title in 2023.

So whether you’re a fan of the north or the south, enjoy this case of wine and cheer on your team in the 2023 Rugby World Cup.
