INTRODUCING Symply Red.

Using the 2012 tempranillo (said tempraneo) was the brain child of Symphony Hill winemaker Mike Hayes, Stanthorpe Men's Shed and Community Development Services.

Stanthorpe Men's Shed and CDS treasurer Kev Armstrong said the support received had been amazing

"We are incredibly thankful," he said.

"Symply Red has turned into being a community wine to support a community project."

Mr Armstrong said the exclusive wine would be launched at ArtWorks on Davadi on Friday from 4.30-6.30pm.

"The event is free and there will be a wine tasting and nibbles," he said.

"The first 12 bottles, numbered 0001-0012, will be auctioned off and there are 866 bottles in total that can be bought on the night and after the event."

Mr Armstrong said the Stanthorpe Men's Shed was initiated by CDS.

"They recognised the need for support for men in the community and also for men to have the support of other men," he said.
