Become a Wine Connoisseur at Home with The Wine List [Advert]
July 18, 2020
Sipping a glass of wine on a summer evening is an idyllic thought, looking out over the sunset with friends and good food. Lockdown, however, has seen the friends be socially distanced and the drinking not as idyllic as we thought. Things are now getting back to normal, which I am sure most of us will be relieved about, and soon you will be back to summer barbeques with friends and family in the garden.
Now is the perfect time to start learning more about wine and wine pairings so you can impress your guests with your choice of wines. The Wine List, a wine subscription box, has set up the perfect package of learning and entertainment. Each box comes with two 75cl bottles of wine, your wine roots course notes which give you more information about the harvesting and production of wines, and finally a set of tasting notes on the two included bottles, your first box also includes an introduction to wine tasting to get you started, too. You can indulge in the bottles yourself or with a partner, or even learn together with a group of friends as a fun activity to do as a group.
If you are like me, I know nothing about wine and always tend to go for bottles at the cheaper end of the price range, and stick to tried and tested brands. The wine aisle at the supermarket can seem very overwhelming if you do not know your shiraz from your pinot. The Wine List kindly sent me one of the starter kits to get going with and myself and Gavin have enjoyed developing our taste pallets and now have a better understanding for mid-range wines, and may, on special occasions, branch out more.
The Wine List would like to offer my readers 30% off their first box to allow them to try the same wine tasting box using code MOTHER30 at checkout. In your first box, you will receive;
– An introduction to wine tasting
– Your first two wines worth £16 each
– Interactive tasting cards
– Your learning plan for the next 12 months
Further boxes after your first box cost £39, which is still a great price for two bottles of mid-range wine and your learning notes. We really enjoyed learning more, with the white being my favourite this time round. Key tip – make sure you have a corkscrew to hand!
