Together with Laithwaite’s Wine, we’re giving away an exclusive case of world-class wines, every week until 23rd December. There are four cases to choose from, worth up to a value of £135.
Laithwaite's Wine began back in 1969 when a young Englishman, Tony Laithwaite, began shipping van-loads of claret from Bordeaux to Britain. Now, over 40 years on, Laithwaite's Wine buyers constantly travel the world, seeking out smaller wineries, many proudly family-owned and run.
Their aim is to discover new and exciting wines to ship directly to their customers in the UK. Most of the wines are UK exclusives and their extensive range of 1,400 wines features bottles from parts of the world seldom visited by other wine merchants. Plus, by buying direct, they cut out the middle men and pass any savings directly on to you. Find out more at Laithwaites.co.uk
Every Sunday afternoon you can listen to Tasting Notes , a new programme on Classic FM in association with Laithwaite's Wine. Tasting Notes celebrates the discovery that listening to music while enjoying a glass of wine can actually enhance its flavour. And to celebrate this new show, we're giving you the chance to win a case of wine right here online.
Choose from one of the fantastic cases listed below, each one containing a mix of wines chosen especially by Laithwaite's award-winning team of wine buyers.
Case one - Classic Europe
Your first choice features every wine from the first six weeks of the Tasting Notes programme. Highlights include mature Rioja Gran Reserva, concentrated right bank claret, steel-edged Austrian Grüner Veltliner and an exquisite white Burgundy.
Case two - Celebration Dozen
Your second selection comprises the remaining wines from the series. Here you’ll enjoy Premier Cru Champagne, silky Pinot Noir from New Zealand’s Central Otago and a rich, plummy Malbec from the world’s highest wine region. And don’t miss the sublime 10-year-old White Port.
Case three - Tasting Notes Red
Your third case is ideal for those who prefer a glass of red. Look out for Laithwaite’s bestselling wine The Black Stump: a blend of ink-black Durif and spicy Shiraz. It’s joined by every red wine from the Tasting Notes series including velvety Pillastro Selezione d’Oro, complex XV du Président and more.
Case four - Tasting Notes White
Alongside the Premier Cru Champagne and rare, 10-year-old White Port, your fourth case is crammed with each crisp Tasting Notes white. You’ll unearth gems like lime-edged Rioja Blanco, aromatic Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc, high-grown reserve Chardonnay and a bone-dry German Riesling.
