Tomorrow morning, things might just get a bit stress-y round here. After six weeks of not having to
say shout ‘I’M LEAVING IN FIVE MINUTES AND IF YOU’RE NOT IN THE CAR YOU’RE WALKING TO SCHOOL’, we’re back to the old routine. Alarm clocks, rushed breakfasts and the obligatory last minute missing shoe searches (sometimes mine). Then there’s the bit when you get back from the school run and the house seems so very quiet. Not entirely dreading that bit, tbh. But still, to help ease us back into the new term, I thought wine might help. At last month’s Camp Bestival wine tasting, one of the most popular wines was a rosé made by an Englishman called Stephen Cronk. Together with his wife Jeany and three children, he moved to Provence back in 2009 (sigh) and set about creating his idea of a perfect rosé. Five years on and not only has he created an award-winning wine that’s stocked in Waitrose (£8.99), he can also open a bottle with nothing but a shoe. Stephen’s kindly donated a case of Mirabeau Rosé worth over £100 and all you need to do to make it yours is leave a comment on the blog below or on the KMWC facebook page. We’ll do names in a hat as usual next week.
