Vin de Table de Tour de France

With a rye smile across his visage, former Irish cycling legend Sean Kelly let slip one of the Tour de France’s best-kept secrets recently when he teamed up with Chilean winemaker Adolfo Hurtado to celebrate Cono Sur’s partnership with the Tour de France earlier this year.

“The Tour de France in 2016 isn’t what it used to be,” he confided to the awaiting world’s press, “There was a time the riders would stop off for a glass of wine at the local cafés during the race!”

The earth-shattering statement was made as Cono Sur’s Chief Winemaker and Executive Director Adolfo Hurtado and Sean took some time out to pose for a photo-session in St Stephen’s Green to highlight the limited-edition Cono Sur Bicicleta labels released to celebrate the Tour de France link.
