Sorter Pinot Gris, Joanne Irvine

IRVI250
Lévrier, which is the short word meaning "greyhound" is the inspiration for this new range from Lévrier by Jo Irvine. The range reflects her love of wine with her love of her adopted Greyhounds. During the battle with the Greeks in 432-404 BC, the Corinthians used greyhounds to protect their city by boxing them at the seashore to warn of any impending invasion. One time during the night, the Greeks came ashore whilst the garrison were asleep. One greyhound named "Sorter" fled to the town to give warning and roused the soldiers to battle thus saving the town. The grateful townfolk erected an engraved monument in his honour.
