**Burgess & Hall Christmas Wine Offer (Order NOW. Offer ends THURSDAY 16 Dec)**
We have put together some outstanding cases for you this Christmas. These are characterful wines made by some wonderful small, independent producers. Anti-Amazon and anti-supermarket choices; they’re not homogeneous or made on an industrial scale. They’re satisfying and life affirming, something that we all need a little of at the moment. There is a somewhat ‘classic’ feel to our cases: I think we’ve been hankering for something reassuring, but as ever with our Burgess & Hall twist. Quite simply they’re the tastiest wines you can drink over the festive season, and they represent outstanding value for money. Read on for full details. To order email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be in touch to arrange delivery and payment
