    We'd love to know if you have any feedback:

    - Did you like it?
    - Have you used it?
    - Did you have any issues?

    Thanks for your help!

    Experienced no problem in paying and ordering. Very similar experience to Chea in that only wine on my order confirmation. Again very helpful; live chat with Carola re-assured. Order arrived in perfect condition. Dinnerware is very basic as described. Have not tried any wine or goodies as yet. Offer may have changed on their site now to fancy wine waiter serving set but I think you can still go through MS link for this one. One off order per household for new customers.

    We have been buying wines and hampers from Giordano for years and received superb quality goods which have been excellent value. We once had a white wine we disliked, called them to report this and they immediately credited us. Absolutely no complaints, would definitely recommend.

    My dad has used Giordano for years. He loves the wine & always gets the freebies. They often have offers on that include plates, foods etc. They are reliable & he has never been let down. Occasionally delivery has taken 3 weeks but that's no problem for him. Good company.

    I can't find the £60 offer (http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/deals/cheap-wine-deals/#giordano) on their website now. The link on the MSE page doesn't work, and the only similar offer I can find is now £70:

    Have they scrapped the deal early?

    If you do order then make sure you opt out of any direct mail, emails, sales calls etc. We ordered from them once a couple of years ago then got driven up the wall by their telesales calls. Took ages & numerous requests & complaints to get our number taken off their list. Put me off for life.

    I recently got through most of this special offer myself and I can firstly say that I am very happy with what I got for that price (£59.95) the wine itself I am only halfway through but so far I would rate as average/decent unfortunately not great; this is perfectly acceptable considering the price.

    The food extras added up to quite a lot actually and have been enjoyed so far, they actually sell these items individually for quite a high price (too high I think) but goes to show it is quality stuff. The plates were a welcome addition too as I was just about to buy some new plates before this.

    So I will now say that delivery was an issue for me but this is a courier issue not Giordano, I had it sent to work as I would never be home for it I waited and waited (the allotted maximum 29 days) then rang them up, I spoke to a helpful Italian lady but she informed me that it had been delivered 2 weeks earlier and the next day e-mailed me the proof of delivery whereby it showed that it had been delivered at 3pm wed and showed a signature clearly showing someone's name (Lee D*****) this surprised me a lot as I or my work colleagues or neighbours have not heard of this name and I was at work at that time and day (so were other trusted co-workers) and we never saw a delivery.

    Like I said that was a courier issue, I spoke to Giordano and sent a letter with my signature and wishes and they sent me another box with the same deal, this time it did arrive roughly 2 weeks later and I am now happy after the delay and slight worry.

    Anyway I see that this offer ended 31 Dec 2015, so that is why it is still not around but they do seem to have other similar offers (if not quite so good) like the one mentioned a few posts up and also they sent a good offer/leaflet in the post to me but it is not showing properly on the website, it seems they preferred it by phone/mail order. I cannot give the link but it does not show or describe the offers fully anyway.

    Once tried making wine, wife asked me for a bottle---was well chuffed , until I saw her pouring it in the sink. She said it was the best thing she ever had for cleaning mark and stains off the steel sink--- good job I had wine left to drown my sorrows

    I ordered this deal online (case of red wine) and was a bit concerned when the invoice details just had “Italian Table Red Wines” on it with no reference to the extras. I opted to pay via paypal and ordered on the 31st July and my case arrived on the 13th August. Plates, bowls and food were all included. The way I looked at it was 12 bottles of wine at £5 each, the food and dishes are just a bonus. We’ve only sampled one of the bottles but it was delicious so all in all a great deal. Thank you for the original post.

    Ordered 5th August and still nothing heard or received
    Bit concerned as I placed my order on 5th August - told my son about the deal and he placed his order on the 6th August. Apart from an initial order acknowledgement have had no further contact. Have tried to send a message or an email but failed and as the only other option is to dial an 0844 number will try a variety of electronic methods before using this as a last resort. Sadly first impressions not good !
    Regards

    A hopeless company: Avoid!
    I ordered the offer of wine, food and plates from this company on 6 August and received an automated acknowledgement indicating that delivery would be in 10 days or, at most 28 days. I contacted them on 31 August (through their web site chat), and received assurances that the parcel would definitely be delivered before I go on holiday on 15 September. I contacted them again on 9 September and was told the delivery was on its way and would arrive on 16 September! I have asked them to cancel the order and refund the money. Still no sign of the refund. I fear I may have to pursue them through Paypal. I was really looking forward to receiving my order, and had already picked out the next things I wanted to order from them. Now, I would avoid them like the plague.

    Much like bcooney, I ordered this at the start of September in the hope that it would arrive by the end of September as it was meant to make up part of a birthday hamper but since the first automated email I have had no response to my emails through their website. There has not even been a charge to my card which makes me wonder if the parcel is going to turn up at all.

    I would definitely not recommend using the company.

    fab offer - received mine with the white wine, plates etc - everything has been wonderful. Can I go back and order the red wines as well? - seemed to take a little while to arrive but I don't have a problem with that. I would order again.

    Giordano Wine Offer
    We ordered the wine, food and plates offer for £59.95 including delivery on 19 October, and it was delivered on 30 October. Very pleased with the quality and delivery time. Not tasted wine or food yet, but it looks goid, and previous reviews look promising. Would order again. Might give some as Christmas gifts.
