’50 Shades of Cabernet’ Book Launch

Mystery authors and readers along with wine lovers met on a May afternoon in Norfolk to launch the mystery anthology '50 Shades of Cabernet'. The Mermaid Winery was the perfect place to introduce the wine-themed short stories. Guests were treated to a wine flight of five delicious wines, including Peach Beach.
