Feeling competitive? Good, because Borough Wines have teamed up with Hub Vélo for a series of Tour de France tastings and competitions!
Over four weeks during the Tour de France (1 – 23 July), Borough Wines is celebrating cycling culture and highlighting wines from the regions the race passes through, with free tastings in their nine London shops each weekend.
The regions they are celebrating are:
1 – 6 July – Germany, Alsace & Jura
7 – 13 July – Bordeaux
14 – 20 July – Languedoc & Roussillon & Rhône
21 – 23 July – Rhône, Provence & Champagne
These 12 wines will also form the Borough Wines x Hub Vélo Tour de France Wine Tasting Case, which is available to buy online from www.boroughwines.co.uk and in store priced at £175.
Clapton cycle club and bike shop Hub Vélo, has also created a 40km cycle route around all nine Borough Wines & Beers shops in London. The wine company is giving away a free 20cl bottle of Prosecco to anyone who completes the route on two-wheels and logs it on cycle app Strava. All riders will also be entered into a prize draw to win a Magnum of Gosset Champagne and cycling goodies from Hub Vélo.
Don’t worry guys – there’s also a less energetic competition running that we can all get on board with…..
For the chance to win a full 12-bottle TDF17 Wine Tasting Case and a Hub Vélo cycle kit, entrants just need to take a picture of the cycle jersey currently on display in the Borough Wines London shops or in Hub Vélo, and share it on Twitter or Instagram using #VeloVin, tagging @boroughwines and @hubvelo.
