After the anti-covid test tank of the Bordeaux winegrower Jean-Christophe Mauro, it is the turn of Christophe Avi, winemaker at the Bois de Simon estate in Lot-et-Garonne to exploit the vein. “A friend suggested to me that after the test, the vaccine was needed! “ explains Christophe Avi, who is launching his tank at the end of January. This Merlot in Vin de France will be marketed through Christophe Avi’s cellar network, but also in pre-order on his website from January 12th. “I plan 10,000 bottles for the moment. Depending on the sales, I will be able to make more” explains the winemaker. “I would like the tank to come out when the Covid-19 vaccine will be available for sale in France, also to mark the occasion!” he hopes.
A label without headache
“I do not carry any message with this tank, everyone free to vaccinate or not. My goal is only to make people laugh ” supports Christophe Avi. On the label, we can also read that this wine is delivered without a prescription by the San’avi laboratory. But watch out for side effects! “Good humor, smiles and conviviality”. “If thanks to this tank I can make my customers laugh, pay my employees and my bills, I will be honored” concludes the winemaker.
