A good deal going on at URRU Bandon

A topsy-turvy week this week. The irreplaceable Austin is off sick, so I have been doing my best to keep the customers satisfied at the English Market shop. (And no, he wasn't just skiving so as to go the Liverpool match - quiet at the back, please!)

I thought I'd better let yous know that you can try one of our wines in the flesh, so to speak, at URRU, McSwiney Quay, Bandon this Saturday. I'll be there, between about eleven and about half past two, to introduce a promotion of Louis de Belair's Dauphin du Rozier, a very elegant Grenache and Syrah blend from the Costieres de Nimes. The French can be a bit sniffy about the C de N for some reason, but I think no more than a sniff is all that's needed to settle the issue as far as this wine's concerned.

The deal is two for twenty euro, which pretty much corresponds to the £7.50/bottle we charged for it when it first arrived on the Bubble Brothers list in medieval times. Here it is on our website at the current retail price of 12.50. If you buy a few bottles online, I'll apply the deal when I process the order. And if you notice that the accents in Costieres de Nimes turn to shrapnel in your browser, you can change View>Encoding> to UTF-8. I know it's a nuisance. I have it on my conscience.

Every now and again I get the curious feeling people are reading this blog. Silly of me, I know, but there you are.

    Of course we are reading your blog...I was devastated that I couldn't access it for a few days. Anyway, won't be able to make it this Saturday. A pity really.

    And of course, Austin would never skive off for the Liverpoodles.....he knows it would upset me too much as a ManUn fan....(and please no mention about Chelsea either).

    Thank you for the vote of confidence, Elke. Bandon was fun, and the deal on the Dauphin de Rozier is a good, genuine deal that's very easy to promote. The new and shiny changes to the website mean that - I think - it automatically does the discount when you buy two or more. Technology is still a marvel to me when it works.
