  • Bordeaux
  • Pauillac
  • Medoc
  • Haut-Medoc
  • Pomorol
  • Ste. Emillion

Here’s what you need to know and do if you want to join.

All the grapes have been sourced from MMI in Dubai and Spinneys in Abu Dhabi, who are offering a 10% discount off bubbles, grapes & spirits when you show this email in-store.
