34 launches its own award-worthy wine label, The Grape Shed

Issued by: 34 | 2 Jul 2014 09:15
At 34 we know a thing or two about selling alcohol. So we thought we'd launch our very own wine label.
34 believes that an easy-drinking, unpretentious wine can easily pass as an expensive award-winning vintage. The average wine drinker relies on the opinions of experts to tell them which wines they should be buying. And wine awards have become the easy way to choose wine.

So we thought we'd have a little dig at the expense of these so called experts and create our own awards for our very own 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon.

"In-store, where the shoppers are looking for the best, most awarded wines and not the 'best buy', we stole the show with possibly the most awarded wine ever," stated 34 CD, Geraint Gronow.

The Grape Shed was developed in collaboration with the genuinely award-winning Warwick Wines.
