Champagne Pol Roger is the Official Champagne sponsor of both the Festival of British Eventing at Gatcombe Park and the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials 2016. 2016 marks the first year of partnership with The Festival of British Eventing, and the second year supporting the prestigious Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials. This move strengthens our sponsorship portfolio in the equestrian world, as we continue to support Pol Roger Ambassadors and Equestrian Team GBR members Harry Meade and Laura Collett.

The Pol Roger Portfolio Land Rover Defender will make its virgin voyage to Gatcombe Park from 5-6th August and will return to the stunning parkland of Burghley House from the 1-4th September. At both Gatcombe and Burghley the Land Rover will take centre stage in the Pol Roger Lodge; an après-ski themed bar space, replete with vintage skis, toboggan and bespoke bar. A visit to the Pol Roger Lodge provides an oasis from the adrenaline-filled cross country course and fantastic shopping opportunities, and the perfect environment in which to relax and enjoy a glass of champagne.  Guests at the lodge will not have to miss a moment of the action; live coverage of the day’s eventing will be televised from the tent.

We have worked with illustrator Emma McCall to design an artist’s impression of the lodge, which captures the spirit of fun at the heart of the event space. Following a tiring day on the ‘pistes’, guests can unwind and enjoy a glass of Pol Roger Brut Reserve, Brut Vintage 2006 or Rose 2008.
