- Tuesday, 15 September 2015
A fabulous time was had by all on the 9th September, when world famous Gun makers Holland & Holland, played host to the Capreolus Club and the Lunzer Wine Club at their London Gun Room.

The inspired combination of newly formed, London - based, large game hunting club - ‘Capreolus Club’ with the Lunzer Wine Club, made for a truly memorable and enjoyable evening.
Capreolus Club Chair Peter Jones kicked off the proceedings, highlighting Holland & Holland’s proud tradition as a prestige gun maker and introducer of some truly iconic big game calibres. With such accolades, Holland & Holland was the perfect setting for the Capreolus Club.

Arguably the finest gun room in London, it also presented a superb setting for Peter Lunzer of the Lunzer Wine Club, to introduce some excellent wines that included; Pol Roger Champagne, Domaine William Fevre, Chablis 2013, Chateau Lamothe Cissac, Cru Bourgeois, Haut Medoc 2009, and a Chateau Batailley, Cru Classé, Pauillac 2005.
Each wine was expertly introduced to guests by Peter Lunzer, who’s encyclopaedic knowledge of wines and wine related anecdotes, made for a highly amusing and interesting speech.
With some stunning double and bolt action rifles on display, gun room manager Andrew Ambrose of Holland & Holland was also able to give guests an insight into the aspirational world of H&H.
The Capreolus Club extends its thanks to the Lunzer Wine Club and hosts Holland & Holland for their support.
Established as a unique London-based members club, the Capreolus Club is designed exclusively for deer stalkers and hunters of large game. Membership provides access to hunting trips in the UK and abroad, as well as access to some superb social events and countless other benefits.
