V-Twin Zin. A Red Wine For Bikers.

I am the only custom builder born in France, living and working in the US (FYI, I am naturalized US citizen) and still talking with a Parisian accent. So, I could have been upset by the fact that I was not picked by V-Twin Vineyards to be their spokesperson for their V-Twin Zin Red Wine for bikers. But I am not because 1- They didn’t pick anyone, yet. 2- They are not based in France but in the legendary Dry Creek Valley in Sonoma County. The company states that their reasoning behind the launch of a wine for bikers is that most of them are now in their 40’s & 50’s with steady careers and families and some good money to enjoy the finer things in life, including good food and good wine.  And to convince you that they know about our lifestyle they emblazoned their bottles with a label showing skulls and a flaming v-twin engine.  Problem is that they didn’t send me a bottle for testing (I always volunteer for red wine testing and tasting). V-Twin Zin is currently available exclusively via the company website. In it, they even created a club, the “Easy Rider Wine Club,” allowing members to post photos of their bikes, share news and information. More about this wine as soon as I receive my testing (tasting) sample. V-Twin Vineyards.

    You are right Cyril. You’re the most qualified to be the spokesperson (hi, hi) and taste it. What kind of meat with this one. Red? like the wine?

    Outrageous accents were so last year. I say if you want to be a spokesperson, everybody drink a bottle and go out into rush hour. The last one standing is the spokesperson.

    I’m sending some out to you today – I’ll hold that

    We had no idea you were french. We mean it should have occured to us, your name is Cyril Huze, but you know YOU’RE Cyril Huze, that’s you’re name, that’s what they call you.
    The Beast Lair once held court in the 7th on Rue De L’Exposition, 27bis to be precise, and spent a few months riding the mountains between Biarittz and Coilliere.

    Cyril….See if you can get a bottle for me, too. I was not born in France, however, I have been a Chevalier du Tastevin for 30 years. Black tie at Clos Vougeot works as well for me as black leather and motorcycles. David

    The only fair way to determine the proper spokesperson is to hold a wine-off and I’ll throw my name in the hat, along with nominating Scott Webster of Leroy-Thompson.
    Now if we wanted to hold a WHINE-off, I’d consider some other nominations…
