Bin End Sale ends Midnight this Sunday 3rd March & a big NSPCC Thanks!

by Ed H-B

Our annual bin end sale was due to end today, but we decided to add some extra wines so we’ve also extended the sale all day tomorrow in our shops and online until midnight this Sunday, 3rd March. 

Update: Our 2013 Bin End sale has now ended. Subscribe to our mailing list to keep up to date with our latest offers and recommendations or check out our wine of the week which we publish every Tuesday.

And a big “Thank you!”

We’d also like to thank all those who came to the NSPCC City Fine Wine Challenge last night at RIBA, who helped raised an incredible £161,000 towards Childline and the NSPCC.

We had a fantastic turn out with inspiring, but humbling words from Andy Briggs, chair of the City Fine Wine Challenge committee, as well as from Lee Mitchell, Head of Childline Schools Service who outlined the rapidly growing success of the service since it started at the beginning of 2012.

NSPCC -Cruelty to Children must stop.

We were also pleased to award the Patrick Sandeman Trophy to Goldman Sachs who were the winners of the City Fine Wine Challenge Quiz chaired very ably (and amusingly!) by Tim Atkin, whilst many others bid generously on the 8 kindly donated lots in the auction led by Jeffrey Archer, who performed his duty of eliciting cash from the waiting crowd of financiers in a very efficient fashion. Apparently he and Chris Beatles have raised over £41m at charity auctions over the past 10 years!

We will publish the wines shown at the NSPCC City Fine Wine Challenge on Monday.

Have a very good weekend.
