For the fashionista: silly shirts by Gaminets sans soufre

Loved and appreciated by his customers for his personalized suggestions and extensive knowledge of wine, Michel Beauchamp from our Beaubien Selection store located in Montreal, recently launched his very own collection of t-shirts emblazoned with wine puns. Although initially Michel and his spouse, Édith Lapierre, started producing the shirts as fun gifts to give to family and friends, the trend quickly caught on, thanks to pictures posted on Instagram! With funny wine puns such as “Gamay some”, “Sylvaner Stallone” and “Straight outta Morgon”, these t-shirts make great gifts for all your wine-loving friends.

Follow them on Instagram @gaminetsansoufre and peruse their available shirts. To order, go to Gaminets sans soufre’s Facebook page.
