Bruce Jack Wine Giveaway!

Few things say small win quite like a really great glass of wine. I mean, kids returning towels to the bathroom rather than leaving them on their bedroom floor is right up there but you know what I mean. Anyway, what makes a glass of wine even greater is when it just so happens to do good as well as taste good. And that’s exactly what South African winemaker Bruce Jack does. His Fairtrade wine range, available from the Co-op, includes the Fairtrade Shiraz (see this week’s reviews) and supports the Merwida Farm Village in the Breedekloof region where the grapes are grown. These wines help people in some of South Africa’s poorest and most disadvantaged communities, improving the living conditions and livelihoods of the workers and their families. Bruce truly works to make a difference (during lockdown he turned one of his wineries into a soup kitchen) but he also makes properly good wine.

To help spread the good wine word, Bruce and his team have given me five (FIVE!) cases of Bruce Jack wines (6 x 75cl) to give away to five of you and all you have to do to be in with a chance of winning one of them is leave a comment here before the 1st October. I’ll then be raising a glass with Bruce on the 7th October on Instragram Live at 7pm and we’ll announce the winners (I’ll also email you if you win so don’t worry if you don’t do Instagram). Good luck!

T&Cs: UK residents only, must be over 18 years old to enter. Competition closes on 1st October 2021 at 11.59pm. The winners will be announced and notified by email and the prize will be sent to the winner after that date.

  1. Fantastic prize to win,yes please!

  2. I first heard about Bruce Jack wines from my brother who lives in Jo’burg. Fingers crossed we’ll enjoy a glass or two with him next year when we plan to visit and travel in South Africa with him. For now we’ll keep FaceTime calls going. A win like this would be brilliant to help celebrate all the little, and big, occasions we missed recently. I look forward to your chat with Bruce next month.

  218. A nice strong red for a good price. Yes please!
