So, the Christmas pages have been live on the website for a few days now. I always get tempted when these come out (and couldn’t resist some of the latest Alsace and Italy releases), but I’ve noticed for the last few years that there always seems to be a second tranche of wines and deals a bit closer to Christmas.
Makes it quite hard to plan Christmas (that is, I buy some, and am then ‘forced’ to buy some more).
For example, based on past offers, I’m guessing TWS will offer better prices, at some point in the next month, on some of the champagnes (TWS’ own / Gratien, Pol Roger, and possibly a couple of other Grandes Marques), and I’d be surprised if more ports didn’t appear on the list shortly, not to mention some Domaine Weinbach topping up the Alsace options, and some further Ridge releases (from memory, the latest Estate wines / Zins always seem to come out around now)…
What about you? Which wines/offers are you waiting for before finalising that last Christmas delivery?
