The tour will visit seven different wineries over two days where wines from different appellations, including Crozes Hermitage and Cornas from Northern Rhone, and Vacqueyras and Chateauneuf-du-Pape from Southern Rhone, will be tasted. The tour will be eating at local bistros during the day and fine dining at the hotel near Valance in the evening which has been booked exclusively. A team competition will also run throughout that will provide some opportunities for added entertainment and amusement.
Jeremy Waud, Managing Director of Incentive FM commented: “My sister-in-law suffers from Polymyositis and has been wheelchair bound since being struck down by the disease six years ago. It is a rare and relatively unknown disease so we have selected Myositis Support Group as our chosen charity to help raise money to fund new research and provide support to sufferers and their families.”
Myositis Support Group is the only UK charity specific for the inflammatory myopathies, helping people and their families affected by Dermatomyositis, Polymyositis, Inclusion Body Myositis, and Juvenile Dermatomyositis.
