Some of you will (hopefully) be all too familiar with our wine drinking mission but just in case you’re new (*waves hello*) or you’ve forgotten our ethos, here’s a quick reminder:
We aim to get the UK population to move out of their comfort zone and experiment with some of the fantastic lesser-known wines and grapes on offer.
Hesitant? Don’t be! We are here to help with #grapeswap the basic principle of which is "If you like x why not try y?" with x being a tried-and-tested favourite variety and y being an exciting alternative which you might not have tried before.
We add a new suggestion every month for how you can #grapeswap so keep an eye out for the hashtag, and the images below, on social media.
Light and easy drinking.
