June 2015 Newsletter

Welcome to our June newsletter!

It’s on again: The Tour de France!

We have a great six-pack of wines to enjoy with the magnificent TV coverage. These packs have been extremely popular the last few years. If you are not a tour watcher, its a great mix of 6 wines to introduce our range

Tour de France Six Pack 2015

The wines in this 6 pack are sourced from vineyards in the Pyrenees, Gaillac in South West France, Cahors (the home of Malbec), Rhone, Provence, and finishing with a fabulous Champagne as they reach Paris.

Wines relate to regions that the 2015 Tour passes through, in the mid and final section of the race when the battle for the yellow jersey really hots up. They represent excellent value for money and are a great introduction to DiscoverVin’s wines. And all at a fraction of the price of a ticket to France!

Here is the list of wines, as matched with some of this year’s Tour stages.  Serving suggestions and stages will be included with the pack.

This guy (below) is obviously not on le Tour, but he’s got the right idea, rushing in to this Epicerie Fine in Bordeaux to collect his wine and nibbles! No need to take your velo to the wine shop though, you can get yours on-line!
