Turning Wine into Water

I could have chosen a catchier title  like turning water into wine. It’s more useful for parties and triggers your interest for miracle explanations… However, I wrote what I meant: this article is about turning wine into water. And here is why.

My friends at Domaine Montazellis are flash-selling their wines in order to finance a new well. Theirs had run dry a couple of days before harvest this year, forcing them to sell their crop (no 2011 Montazellis vintage ) and launch this TUNING WINE INTO WATER campaign: selling their wines so as to get water running again.

(Explication en Français  ici).

Domaine de Montazellis had a very busy summer which ended with our 2nd “Montachillis Wine Festival” which was a great success thanks to all the helpers, performers and guests who joined us.

The following day we were all feeling very festive until we realised that unfortunately our well had run dry.
The timing couldn’t have been worse with the harvest about to start the next day.
The harvest went ahead, but without any water at the Domaine we were unable to rinse out the vats and equipment or wash anything down, which meant we could not start the wine making process.

Sadly we were forced to sell our entire crop this year which means there will be no 2011 vintage for Domaine de Montazellis.

We are launching our “Turn Wine into Water” campaign today to try and encourage everyone who loves wine to buy a case of Montazellis wine and help us to raise funds for a new 130 meter deep well.

We will be holding “Flash Wine sales” here at the Domaine and throughout France, the Uk and Germany over the next few weeks.
We will be holding small wine tastings where possible to increase wine sales to be able to start the digging process.

We kindly ask everyone to spread the word on our behalf and if anyone is interested in getting involved wherever you live, with wine tastings at their place of work or host Montazellis Wine dinner parties please get in touch.

We will send out regular updates on our progress via our facebook page.

Thank you in advance for your kind support.
Domaine de Montazellis.
