DiscoverVin Newsletter June 2012

DiscoverVin Newsletter June 2012

Winter weather for us is an opportunity to be sitting by the fire with a beautiful glass of our red wine of the month from Fronton or perhaps taste the sunshine in a glass of beautiful dessert wine from Jurançon

Or we could dream we are in warmer climes – perhaps in France for Le Tour!  We have put together a great Taste the Tour 6 Pack of wine, including tasting notes, information about the race stages that the wines relate to – drink the wine for the region that the race is going through.  Cook up a local speciality (we have supplied some recipes), turn up the heater and zip there goes the peloton!
Only $140 for six nights entertainment!  Cheaper than a ticket to France.
