Laithwaites Wine for Valentine’s Day

Feb 05, 14 Laithwaites Wine for Valentine’s Day

Posted by in All, Featured Post

I know I posted not long ago that I was only going to do one obligatory Valentine’s Day post but there seems to be soooo much love in the air, that I’ve decided to do another one. There’s so much hype and pressure around Valentine’s Day that honestly, you’ll need a glass of wine just to get through the day, never mind through dinner. I personally prefer a sparkler, champagne if possible, as my drink of choice for Valentine’s Day (well, for any day really) but there are plenty of delicious red and white wine alternatives out there. Laithwaites know there are so many choices so they’ve come up with a great offer in conjunction with Avios to help you out this year. Laithwaites Wine have teamed up with Avios to give you the chance to save £38 on 12 bottles of prosecco and if you’re an Avios member, for a first-time purchase, you can collect Avios with Laithwaites, up to 1000 points. You can use Avios for things like days out, trips and more! The promotion has started already but will run until 10th Feb. But not to worry, Laithwaites are not limiting the promotion to Valentine’s Day wine. They’re also offering savings of up to £50 on selected 12 bottle cases of wine. So sign up and start collecting your points for that holiday in the sun or a fun day out with the family. And enjoy your Valentine’s Day with Laithwaites Wine Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInPocketRedditGoogleTumblrEmailPrintPinterestLike this:Like...

A little something for Valentine’s Day, Billecart Salmon Brut Rose

Feb 04, 13 A little something for Valentine’s Day, Billecart Salmon Brut Rose

Posted by in Champagne

Alright lovers, it’s that time of year again – Valentine’s Day!! I know, I know, many of you may be rolling  your eyes but let’s face it, if you don’t do something on Feb.14th, you’re going to be in big trouble with your significant other. Going out to dinner is VERY romantic on Valentines Day, you and a 1000 other couples all smushed into a restaurant with that special (overpriced) ‘Valentines Day Menu’- where all the tables have been converted into ‘romantic’ two tops, situated cheek by jowl with red and pink streamers, cupids floating overhead and roses galore as decoration. Rather than share your one big romantic evening of the year with everyone else, wouldn’t you rather have a quiet, un-rushed, candle lit dinner at home with your sweetie? And, we all know no evening dedicated to Eros would be complete without rosé champagne (well, you can’t ditch all the accoutrements that go with V-Day). To help you out, Billecart-Salmon are running a special giveaway this year. If you buy a full sized bottle of their Brut Rosé, Blanc de blanc Grand Cru or Vintage 2004, they’ll throw in a half bottle of the Brut Rosé just to keep the magic of the evening going. This offer is valid from 1st to 14th of February at participating retailers (subject to availability, first come, first served).  I can tell you that Berry Bros & Rudd, Hedonism Wines and Fortnum & Mason are just a few of the retailers involved along with various others around the UK. To see the full list of retailers giving away half bottles of Billecart Rosé, click here. I have always enjoyed Billecart’s Brut Rosé, a delicate champagne with fine bubbles, an aromatic nose and delicate but divine flavours of fresh red fruits, good as an aperitif or perhaps a dessert of fresh strawberries topped with whipped cream – I’m sure you can find other uses for any left-over whipped cream later in the evening…like, putting it in your coffee 😉 Happy Valentine’s Day from The Wine...

Win Naked!

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Naked Wines are launching a competition to win £1000 worth of wine for your wedding! I usually think Valentine’s Day is a triumph of marketing, much like Mother’s Day but  Naked have come up with something original to celebrate the month of love. They’ve come up with a video competition. Your task, should you choose to accept it, is to send in a video of you proposing to your loved one. All you have to do is video it ( a re-enactment is fine), upload  it to their site and then get your friends to visit the site and vote for you. Easy-peasy. What better way to save a bit of change on your big day, especially nowadays what with the depression recession and all. Rules, rules, rules…the basics – open to UK residents, must be over 18, the wedding has to take place in 2009/2010, and only one video per couple, click here for complete rules.  The contest is open from 3 Feb 09 to 1 March 09. AND every couple who enters gets a £25 voucher to spend on the Naked website. So get out those camcorders/mobilephone cameras/video recorders and get going! Check out the latest entrants here Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInPocketRedditGoogleTumblrEmailPrintPinterestLike this:Like...
