Navarra Wine Giveaway!

It’s half term! No school run, no packed lunches, no last minute panics locating lost/clean school uniform and no form-filling. It’s almost felt like a mini-break of sorts even if we haven’t been anywhere. But I do have something for you this week that promises to virtually transport you to warmer climes. Specifically, the beautiful Navarra region in northern Spain, close to the Pyrenees. Navarra has long been famous for its fabulous rosé wines (big fan right here) but the reds are simply gorgeous and the cooler spots in the region are producing some of the country’s best Chardonnay. I’ve got a mixed case (6 bottles) worth over £80 up for grabs and all you have to do to be in with a chance of winning it is leave a comment here on the blog and a winner will be picked next week. For a (virtual) taste of what to expect, see this week’s recommendations. Good luck!

T&Cs: UK residents only. Must be over 18 years old to enter. Competition closes on 5th November 2021 at 11.59pm. The winner will be notified by email and the prize will be posted to the winner after that date.

Current red in the rack: El Chaparral de Vega Sindoa Garnacha

Price: £7.99 - Buy From Majestic

Made from really old vines grown in one of the highest spots in the region, this 100% Garnacha is rich and plump with plenty of bramble fruits and a generous sprinkle of spice. Definitely calls for a fire, a bowl of stew and something binge-worthy on TV.

Current red in the rack: Otazu Premium Cuvee

Price: £12.00 - Buy From Buckingham Schenk

From one of just a handful of wine estates in Spain to have Vinos de Pago status, this is a very smart blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Tempranillo grapes. It’s aged for a year in small oak barrels then for a bit longer in the bottle before being released. Big, bold and very, very beautiful.

    The end of half term will definitely signal the need for fresh new wines in the cupboard… great giveaway as ever 🤞👍

    Not the half-term we had planned due to covid in the household. Wine as usual has got us through – especially a nice red on a crisp winter’s evening.

    Looking at the weather outside, I could really do with imagining myself somewhere warmer/less wet. I feel like these wines might help haha.

    I don’t have children but the weather has turned cold, wet and blustery in Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 so a nice glass of wine in the evening is perfect.

    A week of no early mornings, no timetables, no changes to cover, no behaviour call outs. A week a rest and a cheeky glass or 2. Roll on the Christmas holidays

    • Karen Parry
      11 months ago

      A week in Scotland for half term would be nicely rounded off with a lovely glass of warming red or crisp fruity white would be perfect. These wines sound wonderful…

    Half term and still working full time. So still have to sort out childcare, which inevitably means a nice glass of wine when home to relieve the stress.

    • Ginette Filson

  • Paul Edmunds

    I am a teacher, so counting down the hours to being back in school next week.
    Wine helps me through the highs and lows during term time, so hopefully you’ll pick my name out of the hat in this competition. Keep up the great work Helen!

  • Kathryn Constable

    It is back to school and work next week, but these wines would be perfect for the school mum’s catch up, support and nibbles on Friday evenings.

  • Val Chestnutt

  • joanna manley

    I’ve been put off by Chardonnay after a particularly drunken camping experience – have been literally too scared to try again, so this would be an opportunity. I’m guessing the trick is moderation but after a birthday and half term in isolation…

  • Janet Readings

    Just in time for Christmas – if it lasts that long! Loving interactions on Saturday Kitchen.

    What a lovely way to slink into the Post Half Term / Pre Christmas Frenzy ! I wonder how quickly I could make 6 bottles of wine disappear 🤔….only one way to find out !

  • Lyndsay Peck

  • Amanda Little

    I remember the bliss of half term – a mini holiday indeed when you are a working Mum – autumn half term always the best with long walks through the fallen leaves & Halloween to look forward to! My sons loved carving pumpkins 🎃

  • Jennifer Roberts
    11 months ago

    I would love to win! Despite being off work to cover the half-term break, it was definitely not a holiday! It’s been a stressful few weeks; I started a new job just as my youngest started school (has not settled in very well) and my husband being moved into a job he hates following a restructure. A mixed case of wine would be appreciated.

  • 11 months ago

    A perfect end to the half term!! Lovely red with autumn red leaves
