Shop stocks Grizzly Falls wine especially for the resort’s big race

A SEATON shopkeeper has come up with an aptly named pick-me-up for competitors in the weekend’s big race - a wine called Grizzly Falls.

It was discovered by chamber of commerce chairman Marcus Hartnell who immediately ordered in a few cases for his New Look News store, in Harbour Road.

He said: “I like to enter into the spirit of the Grizzly, and thought this wine would capture the attention of locals and visitors over the Grizzly weekend. It’s a bit of fun, and maybe something the runners would enjoy after the race!”

Grizzly Falls is a Californian wine, in varietals of Chardonnay, Merlot and Zinfandel Rose.
