Christmas wine for the ultimate festive cheer
We can't imagine Christmas without a Christmas tree, carols, fresh Christmas wreaths, lots and lots of food and a glass of mulled wine to keep us warm. If you want to venture off from your traditions a bit this year, we have an idea for you. Christmas cards, as much as they are appreciated, once they are opened they take a place in your living room or fridge door, never to be used again. Why not think outside the box? Christmas wine anyone? No matter if your friends are fans of white, red, rose or bubbles, you can spoil them with a surprise bottle arriving at their door and make their day. Attach a sweet Christmas note to wish them a happy festive season and let them enjoy the bottle with their family during their dinner. Surely, you can't send Christmas wine to all of your family members or friends, but pick a few that especially need a little cheer up and surprise them with something different this year. Be warned – our fine wine is anything but mulled wine material. Best to be enjoyed with good company and food of course!
If you're spending Christmas away from your family, don't let that stop you from spoiling them with a little treat. You can send one of our Christmas wines from any corner of the UK to the other side of the country, completely safe and free of delivery charges. Take a look at our selection of xmas wine and pick your family's favourite – our gift gurus will take good care of your precious cargo, wrapping it up safely and transporting in sturdy cardboard boxes. Even the distance doesn't stop us from delivering your Christmas wine already the next day, but please remember our elves need to get your order by 10.00 pm the previous day. Every year we pull out the best Christmas wine offers, to give everyone, even those on tight budget, a chance to enjoy wine with their family for a price they can afford.
The Perfect Mulled Wine for Christmas
If mulled wine is your family's favourite Christmas treat, you probably have a few favourite recipes saved up and you brush them off every year. There are few secrets to making a really good mulled wine. Want to know which ones? Start with a good recipe. The best ones always suggest heating up your spices in a small amount of wine, without boiling it which would spoil the alcohol and also the flavour of the mulled wine. When you simmered the spice for a while, leave them rest off the heat so that the flavours have a chance to develop properly. Some chefs recommended making a thick syrup this way, before adding rest of your wine. When it comes to the spices, you can go traditional – or opt for something more novelty and with a kick of fresh flavours. Think tangerines, lemons, orange peels, vanilla stick, nutmeg and more. It's also completely acceptable to mix in some spirits, like gin or rum, but don't go overboard otherwise your guests won't be impressed with the amount of alcohol. If you have time, get a spice cloth or wrap, it will save you a lot of time trying to poor the wine into glasses. Don't think that red wine is the ultimate mulled wine ingredient. You can do miracles even from cider, just find the recipe that suits your taste. If you have guests coming and going out of your house on ongoing basis, it's a good idea to keep this mulled syrup base somewhere in the fridge, so that when the next guests turn up you will simply heat it up and add more wine.
