You're not drinking one year's vintage
You’re drinking 30 years of Forrest.
Christmas again; where has the year gone? We’ve put together, perhaps, our best ever offering to make these celebrations just that little bit more merrier! Some of “Brigid’s Bubbly” to toast in the New Year, a couple of delicious reds to match to the Christmas day roast, a little bottle of Noble Chenin Blanc “sweetie” for the traditionalist amongst you who just has to have a proper Christmas pudding or cake, loads of great fruity and crisp whites and (post the December 1st change in drink driving laws) our gold medal winning 2013 Drs’ Sauvignon Blanc, at a modest 9.5% alcohol for you to enjoy; guilt free.
Cheers and Merry Christmas
