AC/DC launch wine in the UK
Laithwaites Wine – the independent wine store - today announces its launch of AC/DC The Wine. AC/DC, The World’s Top Live Rock Band, has teamed up with Laithwaites and one of Australia’s favourite wineries, Warburn Estate, to make the critically acclaimed wine and rock the entire wine world.
Following the huge success of the AC/DC The Wine in Australia, Laithwaites today celebrates being able to exclusively bring this top-billing "rocker" wine to UK consumers.
Celebrating two classic wine styles – Shiraz and Sauvignon – classic rockers AC/DC and celebrated Australian winery Warburn Estate, have created two high-voltage wines, available to buy today at Laithwaites www.laithwaites.co.uk :
- Back in Black Shiraz 2011 - Barossa (from £9.99 a bottle) and;
- Hells Bells Sauvignon Blanc 2011 – Marlborough (from £9.99 a bottle)
Sourced from some of the Southern Hemisphere’s most popular and established wine regions, and styled in 100% AC/DC packaging, the wine will delight die-hard classic rock fans - including AC/DC’s 13 million Facebook fans - and wine lovers familiar with Laithwaites’ top-quality, exclusive wine lines.
Within two weeks of its launch in Australia, sales of the exclusive wine went platinum. Critical acclaim flowed for the wines – including a Winestate Recommended medal for the Hells Bells Sauvignon Blanc - produced at world-renowned and medal-winning winery, Warburn Estate.
AC/DC The Wine will be available to buy from Laithwaites from 8th February http://www.laithwaites.co.uk/
