by Ed H-B

March Sale Ending this Sunday at Midnight

Just a note to say that our March Sale draws to a close at Midnight this Sunday 30th March. Late additions include Luigi Einaudi Barolo and Gonzalez Byass Fino Palmas Sherries.

Bollinger Boat Race Champagne Offer

Our Bollinger Boat Race Offer is running until the end of next week, so do stock up on-line or drop into our shops this week before the race and take advantage. Our branches in Chiswick and in particular Barnes are close to the action on Saturday! We will no doubt be tweeting alongside Bollinger and other revellers on the day.

2013 Bordeaux Primeur – Pontet Canet out of the blocks (very) early

Pontet Canet caused a little stir by releasing their price early (at the same price as last year’s excellent 2012 wine). They made have made half as much, but this shows scant regard for the current market. We will wait until we’ve had the opportunity to taste next week. Plenty more news coming soon from Bordeaux with Charles on the annual ‘Primeur’ tasting tour of Bordeaux next week.

Vinitaly Wine Fair – Verona

Coming up in a couple of weeks, Vinitaly may well present some more interesting opportunities for wines to lay down in your cellar than the upcoming 2013 Bordeaux primeur campaign. Keep your eyes peeled for our tweets from the fair, David, Kate and Charles will all be in attendance. We will update you if anything catches our eye.

Website and Emails

We are reviewing our website and emails to everyone. We would love to hear your feedback so we will be sending out a survey email soon (or feel free to reply with comments to this email). In the meantime, do click ‘Change your email preferences’ below and choose your L&S local branch to ensure we send relevant shop offers which we hope to do on a more regular basis.

Have a cracking weekend,
