Announcing the UK wine trade event of the year


Skin Côntact Live! is revealed to an unsuspecting world. Sponsored by Côtes du Rhône Wines, Skin Côntact is a wine trade supergroup who are playing a barnstorming one-off charity gig in 2015 in aid of Wine Relief, a fundraising initiative for Comic Relief.

The band will be fronted by a succession of wine trade celebrities performing lead vocals. Several top personalities are already on board, with the full line-up to be unveiled over the coming months.

Richard says: "We'll be playing cover versions of classic, well loved floor-fillers, then there's a very special guest DJ spinning the wheels of stainless steel and an exclusive pre-gig tasting of Côtes du Rhône wines. We're going to give the UK wine trade the best party of the year! 100% of the ticket price is going to Wine Relief, the trade's fundraising initiative for Comic Relief, to tie in with Red Nose Day 2015."

"We're so pleased to have the opportunity to take part in this amazing charity event bringing the inimitable 'Skin Côntact' to the UK Wine Trade for one amazing night!"  Says Agnes Heller from Inter-Rhône.  "And of course, we will be holding the annual Côtes du Rhône tasting on this occasion: Think Red Nose Day, Think Côtes du Rhône!"

Skin Côntact Live! will take place on Monday 9 March 2015 at Vinopolis, the spiritual home of the UK wine trade. Tickets will go on sale in January.
