Ridley-Scott-wine-label-475x640Skinny Champagne founder Amanda Thomson is to launch a wine from film director Ridley Scott in the UK through Gerard Basset’s Hotel TerraVina.

The wine comes from a domaine called Mas des Infermières within the Oppède commune in the Luberon AOP, which itself is situated in the Provence region of southeast France.

Made from Grenache and Syrah, the first bottle of wine produced under Ridley Scott’s own label was from the 2009 vintage, after the nearby winemaking facility, Caves de Lumières, agreed to vinify grapes from the film director’s domaine separately.

The full name of the wine is Mas des Infirmières “Source”, inspired by the natural springs which have been fed for centuries by the nearby Luberon mountains – and Hotel TerraVina will carry the 2011 vintage.
