Think Red Nose Day, Think Côtes du Rhône Tasting

Attendees at the annual Côtes du Rhône UK Tasting at Vinopolis on Monday 9th March are guaranteed a stellar line-up of both star wines and Wine Trade stars!

This year, Côtes du Rhône has partnered with supergroup Skin Côntact to co-host what promises to be the Wine Trade event of the year in aid of Comic Relief.  All proceeds from ticket sales, together with monies raised on the night, will be donated to the Charity.

The Côtes du Rhône Tasting will feature around 50 red, white and rosé wines and will run from 6.30 to 7.30pm.  Inter-Rhône's Agnès Heller comments, "Our region takes its winemaking seriously, but as you know a GSOH is something that is very dear to our hearts and we believe that wine should be about sharing and memorable moments.  This event is the perfect partnership for us - a great evening in aid of a fun and fantastic cause.  We're so pleased to be a part of it!"

Côtes du Rhône has generously donated all the wines to accompany the evening's entertainment, which follows the Tasting. This will be the first (and last!) ever performance of Skin Côntact, the brainchild of Richard Hemming who carefully hand-selected band members from the fertile field of the UK Wine Trade.  There will also be a number of guest singer performances from famous and infamous faces.

Tickets for the tasting and gig are available from: www.skincontactlive.com/tickets/
