Martin Williams, Managing Director of Gaucho restaurant group: “Now in its third year, the 2013 HPA Gaucho Polo Tournament has been our most spectacular event yet. Hooves pounded, the world’s best polo players battled, hundreds of bottles of Veuve Clicquot were enjoyed and over 300 varieties of Argentinian wine were tasted under one roof at The O2. We hope our guests enjoyed the evening as much as we did – our biggest challenge is going to be making 2014 even bigger and better!”
