Crush expands on Down to Earth

01 October, 2010

Crush Wines has launched two South African wines under the Down to Earth label in the UK.

They are produced by Stellenbosch- based Villiera, whose wines are already sold in the UK through Crush.

The Down to Earth range comprises a red Touriga Nacional/Shiraz blend and a white Sauvignon/Semillon. Both are listed by the Wine Society (rrp of £6.49).
