This week-end we are gearing up for a rush of orders to meet our Christmas delivery deadline (last orders Saturday 18th) and our shops are full to the gunnels with an amazing array of wonderful wines for Christmas, as well as gift ideas. We fully appreciate that not all of our customers are SW or W London based, which is why our website is fully updated and stock ready to roll country-wide. Remember to ORDER EARLY for Christmas as even Santa is having problems with ice and drifting snow! (My week-end shooting in North Yorkshire has been cancelled which is quite extreme). If you are lucky or brave enough to venture out to one of our shops this Saturday you can enjoy a taste of our fabulous ‘house’ Champagne Benedick, resplendent in its new livery, as well as (our old Chelsea neighbour) Jonathan Maltus’s delicious Saint Emilion, 2007 Chateau Teyssier which we are offering at an extra 10% discount off the case price this week-end when you buy 6 bottles. Whatever you do this week-end, keep warm, drink well, and think Lea & Sandeman for Christmas.
