The nights are drawing in, Halloween and Bonfire Night are just around the corner and just in the nick of time we have a brilliant offer for you, you lucky Wine Shop shoppers!
Any of these wines (and plenty more, just check the website) are rolled back to a fiver, but if you buy any six in our wonderful mix and match offer you can buy half a dozen wines for just £25. I call that awesome, exciting and bargainacious.
So here is my pick of the bunch for winter-warming drinking:
Hallowe’en drinks – no tricks, just treats!
I can’t wait for Halloween when we’re inviting the neighbours round before the spooky fun begins, maybe for a spot of apple bobbing but probably more like a glass of wine and some tasty savouries – and on my list are two devilishly good wines from Chile: the Casillero del Diablo Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Legend has it that a devil haunts the Casillero cellars, but he doesn’t scare me, as the wines are so frighteningly good!
As a Yorky it feels a bit disloyal celebrating the downfall of Son of York Guy Fawkes, so let’s talk fireworks instead and keep the winter chill at bay with bangers and mash, vegetarian chilli and sticky ribs.
Plus a glass or two of tasty wine like the smooth and meat-friendly Extra Special Malbec, the gorgeously savoury Extra Special Barbera d’Asti, our peppery Extra Special Shiraz from the South of France and it’s white partner, the lovely fresh and easy Extra Special Chardonnay that goes great with winter salads.
Bring on the wild and woolly weather – we’re ready!
