What better Christmas present than a bottle- or rather a collection of bottles- of wine?! CH Wine Merchants offer free delivery on all their wine packages, including one called ‘Home School First Aid Kit’, featuring Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot (and some other more special varieties we haven’t heard of- it’s CH Wine Merchants who are the wine experts, not us!). What’s so great about shopping with CH Wine Merchants- rather than just relying on buying wine from the big superchains- is that the local, independent buisness also provides a bespoke service if you’re looking for something in particular, or like us, you’re not too sure what you’re looking for at all!
