Wine Gang News December 2013
December Issue Now Published
We know you'll love our festive 'fizzy, sweet and strong' supplement where we round up more than 40 of the best sparkling, dessert and fortified wines for your Christmas delectation. But we've also homed in on Sainsbury's, because there are buying opportunities with their 25% off all wine, including sparkling and fortified wines, when you buy six or more until Tuesday 10th December. In a packed festive special we also look at Asda, Tesco and Oddbins from the high street, and some great independents in the shape of Haynes, Hanson & Clark, Berry Bros. & Rudd, Jeroboams and Scotland's own Great Grog amongst others. In her editorial, Jane considers the changing shape of the world of wine.
Well, what can we say other than we had a blast. Over 1250 wine lovers in Bath, London and Edinburgh tasted their way through over 1000 different wines. Roll on 2014 when we will be back, bigger and better than ever. Keep an eye on www.wineganglive.com for latest news.
