Bonterra Wine Giveaway!

The weather’s (mostly) still rubbish but I’m all about finding the small joys. Specifically, having something lovely in my glass at the end of the day. I’d throw in a long, relaxing bath but given that someone’s usually nicked all the hot water, not to mention left damp towels all over the floor, the chances of that happening in this house are slim to none. So straight to wine it is. And not just for me. I’ve got 12 bottles of wine worth over £140 to give away to one of you too! The folk at Bonterra, one of my all time favourite Californian wine producers, have kindly offered six bottles of their gorgeous organic Chardonnay and six of their organic Cabernet Sauvignon for one fellow knackered wine lover. Bonterra’s vineyards have been farmed organically for over 30 years and they really know what they’re doing. I’ve always loved the ripe, warm flavours of their wines, like little hugs for the taste buds. Click on this week’s wine reviews for more information on the two up for grabs and to be in with a chance of winning just leave a comment below on the blog and we’ll pick a winner at random. Good luck!

T&Cs: UK residents only, must be over 18years old to enter. Competition closes on 30th June 2021 at 11.59pm. The winner will be notified by email and the prize will be sent to the winner after that date.

This post is sponsored by Bonterra Vineyards. Visit Bonterra.com for more information.

Current white in the fridge: Bonterra Chardonnay

Price: £12.00 - Buy From Tesco

This organic white really is the bees knees, full of gorgeous ripe tropical fruit flavours with a touch of butter and honey. And though the flavours are big, the wine is brilliantly balanced with freshness and fruit in equal measure. Some of the wine is fermented in oak barrels too, adding a gentle spiciness to proceedings. Devour with roast chicken. Or alone in the bath (chance would be a fine thing).

Current red in the rack: Bonterra Cabernet Sauvignon

Price: £12.00 - Buy From Tesco

This is one of those reds that practically orders you to sit down, eat, chat and generally chill your boots. Made from organic grapes grown mostly in vineyards in Mendocino County, just north of Sonoma County in northern California, it’s full of smooth blackberry and plum fruit flavours wrapped in spice and a warming dollop of alcohol. Perfect barbecue red. Or bath time red, come to think of it.

I’ve booked a wheelchair accessible car and will pack everything he needs (except the kitchen sink). Throw the dogs in the back and make the best of it for a week. So if I win your wines they will come too and my Mum and I will enjoy them. They sound delicious.
