Taste the Tour Pack 2015



It’s that time of year again; time to enjoy the legendary Tour de France. Enjoy the sights of the racing and the stunning scenery while enjoying a selection of French wine from DiscoverVin. 

Each year DiscoverVin puts together a 6 pack of wines that can be enjoyed whilst watching the Tour. These wines relate to regions that the 2015 Tour de France passes through. They represent the mid and final sections of the race through the mountains and south of France, when the battle for the yellow jersey really hots up.  

As excellent value for money they are a great introduction to DiscoverVin’s portfolio of boutique French wines. And all at a fraction of the price of a ticket to France!

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

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

The monsieur (below) may not be in the Tour but he seems to have the right idea, racing to buy his wine and cheese at this Epicerie Fine in Bordeaux! 

We look forward to our virtual wine and food peleton again this year and enjoying some fabulous Tour viewing and fine wines! And of course we will be following our friends Les Vaches du Tour on social media as they comment on the real heroes of the Tour- the cows!
