Dear <<First Name>>,
(if you cant make the evening but need some wine just email us)
Some of the best wines in the world are blends of several grape varieties. The ‘GSM’ red blend is made from Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre and it’s a classic from the Côtes du Rhône region - in particular the famous "Chateau Neuf du Pape"..... named after a the time when the Pope moved to Avignon in 1309 and sourced wine from the village of Chateau Neuf. Well its thirsty work looking after the faithful flock.
Wine geek Madaline Puckette writes brilliantly all about Chateauneuf du pape http://winefolly.com/review/about-chateauneuf-du-pape-wine/ should you begin to get the bug and want to know more...
