pétanque wines

Recently Michel-Schlumberger Wine Estate built a Pétanque court and launched it with a Pétanque party. They have a Pétanque Court available for visitors. They encourage people visiting the area to come by, enjoy wines and play a game on the court with views of their organic garden and vineyards. If they come on Friday nights they can listen to the live music we have playing in the courtyard while they play pétanque out back. In addition they now have two wines called pétanque viognier and pétanque syrah. The Sryah is not yet released. The Viognier was at the party on May 24th. If any of you or your club members are interested in purchasing, we would extend to you a special 20% case discount.
