Château Gassier - Limited Edition A Journey in Provence 2019
Château Gassier - Limited Edition A Journey in Provence 2019 (88 TSW)
Château Gassier has created six unique wine bottles that reflect a special moment in time spent while drinking rosé by six influencers. On "my bottle" you can see the beach life but there are other designs like by the pool, on a bike ride, in the mountains or in a confidential cove.
There are five French influencers based in the Aix en Provence area, and one Italian influencer.
The “labels” are engraved directly onto the bottles so that you can see the beautiful colour of the rosé. The original edition was going to be for a year, with many exciting scheduled events all over Europe that recreate the moments on the bottles. However, due to the circumstances, the edition has been extended to two years. The idea of the #makeityours edition is to claim these moments on the bottles yourself!
The Château Gassier winery is located in the heart of the Arc Valley east of Aix-en-Provence. Château Gassier specialises in rosé and white gastronomic wines. You’ll find their wines in many of the Michelin star restaurants in Provence and the world. With their rosés, they aim to compete with gastronomic whites and reds at the table.
The following influencers are partitiating:
