    Wine advent calendar? Whatever manner of new Nonsense is this?

    Who will be left alive/sober to cook the turkeys by the 25th?

    Irresponsible marketing I think .... dragging the hopeless, hapless and unhappy through their doors to get tanked up for a whole month.

    And, of course it won't be "good value".... it'll be a tot in there ... might as well buy 10 bottles of what you like.

    MSE asks if it is good value.

    It contains the equivalent of 6 x 70cl bottles in a mix of red, white, rose and sparkling so works out at £8.33 per bottle.

    I wouldn't class that as good value for us as we don't drink rose or sparkling and only like very dry whites.
    I'd rather buy from a supermarket when they have the 25% off 6 bottles and be free to choose the wines I like.

    I agree, especially as you don't know what the wines are like. You can get a very acceptable wine for less than £8.33, especially when the supermarkets have their 25% offers on, and you can at least choose wines you know are good and that you like.

    I wouldn't want to give it as a gift either - what if the wines included are not very nice. It could be embarrassing.
