Chase Rose Prize Draw….and the winner is…..
The Maison Williams Chase Rose has been one of our best selling wines all summer. With its delicate pale colour, wafts of alluring summer berry fruit and a crisp, dry, mineral texture its not surprising! During June and July we held a prize draw to win a 4 bottle Jeroboam worth over £95….and our lucky winner is…. Charlotte Whittle!
Charlotte, pictured above, and her partner Gary are WWS regulars and have a soft spot for Chase, they can often be found walking their beautiful Bernese Mountain Dog called Clementine of an evening and stopping for a cheeky glass mid walk! We think its a genius plan, why not follow suit, bring your dog, and pop by for a quick glass this weekend! We’ll have some magnums of Chase Rose open… and fresh water ready for your pet dog too! And here’s Clementine…
Summer Quaffable Case, Perfect for the Weekend.
Our seasonal case has proved incredibly popular since we launched it earlier in the year. It’s a fantastic collection of everyday ‘Quaffable’ wines at a fantastic price. 6 whites and 6 reds for only £74.99 which works out at only £6.25 a bottle! The full price of these wines would be well over £95 so it’s a great saving. Additionally if you buy each of our 4 seasonal cases through the year we will give you a £20 cashback voucher to spend in 2018 (t’s&c’s apply). If you missed the Spring Case fear not, buy 2 Summer Cases and we’ll stamp your card just the same! The case is an excellent selection of wines perfect for quaffing over the Bank Holiday Weekend.
As always, we will have a fabulous range of wines to sample in our By The Glass dispenser and the best value wines in Lancashire available as our ‘House Pours’. Plenty of reasons to pop into The Whalley Wine Shop this weekend. Have a great Bank Holiday!
The Team at The Whalley Wine Shop.
