Win a case of boutique French Wines from Virgin Wines!
To celebrate all things French, Virgin Wines are giving you the chance to win a case of their boutique French wines worth £146.88!
France has a long wine history, with tradition playing a large part in determining the quality. To some extent French wine makers have been able to rest on their laurels somewhat, riding on their reputation. With the quality and range of wines from the New World increasing vastly, French wine makers have been given a run for their money in recent years. Tradition still plays a massive part in French wine production but increasingly wine makers are producing wines more accessible to the modern wine drinker. Even the wine labels are becoming easier to understand.
Unlike supermarkets, Virgin Wines is not about selling big name wines made in huge factories using mass produced techniques. Instead, they sell boutique quality wines produced by small independent winemakers who make their wine for love and not money. They believe in offering their customers exceptional value for money and their wine buyers constantly scour the globe to find the best wines possible.
They were established in 2000 so they have many years of experience behind them, and they are proud to announce that this year they were even named ‘Online Retailer of the Year’ at the Drinks Retailing Awards.
3 x Famille Perrin Cotes du Ventoux 2015, worth £10.99 a bottle – Made by the Perrin family who own Chateau Beaucastel, one of the greatest names in Châteauneuf du Pape. This wine is a skilful blend of such grapes as Grenache and Syrah, and has a lovely density and charm.
3 x Chateau du Seuil Graves Rouge 2012, worth £14.99 a bottle – A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, this is a smooth, fruity wine, with firm tannins and gentle oak.
3 x Les Terrasses de L’Argentier Gros Manseng Sauvignon Blanc 2016, worth £9.99 a bottle – A beautiful blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Gros Manseng, which is a perfumed, floral and delightfully intense grape with a spicy finish.
3 x Louis Moreau Chablis 2015, worth £12.99 a bottle – Louis Moreau is a great winemaker with some of the best vineyards in the region and his wines are the benchmark for top-quality. This Chablis has the weight of a 1er Cru (because there’s a wee bit of 1er Cru in it!).
In addition for your chance to win this wonderful case of wine, we have two Virgin Wines special offers for all Silversurfers members
