1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?

I tried the white, I liked it, it was sweet without being too sweet. I prefer sparkling wines to still so appreciated that about it.

2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?

Fruity! It is pleasant to drink and the fruitiness also has a sharp edge to it so it tastes 'clean'

3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?

I didn't know this and find it interesting, it would certainly make a difference were I calorie conscious.

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?

Yes definitely, it would make a lovely drink for summer barbeques/get togethers but also could be enjoyed, as with me, during a quiet evening watching a film.

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?

I will definitely buy it again, it was a pleasant drink and the price is good for the product.

daisybrown Mon 27-Jan-14 12:32:13

1. White, will certainly go on the shopping list in the future
2. Light Fruity and refreshing
3. Would recommend it for any situation, BBQ, dinner, or just as a refreshing wine that won't knock you off your feet (Unless you drink the entire bottle in one go by yourself)
4. Any time
5. No I didn't really read the label in detail, although I would pay more attention if I was buying it myself.
6. Tastes light but not watery, we couldn't tell it was low alcohol.

manfalou Mon 27-Jan-14 12:46:44

Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?

We tried to Rose (our favourite wine), it was really nice, was pleasantly surprised*

How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?

Fruity, refreshing and easy to drink, has no after taste like some wines so is great with food.

Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?

I did.. but only because I read i read it on the letter that came with it, not from the label, don't bother reading calories of wine. However a definite UP point to it, especially after xmas.

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?

I would definitely recommend it! For any occasion. It tastes really nice and usually I can't have more than one glass of wine because of its strength, Im happy to report I definitely drank more than one glass of this ;)

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?

Id buy again. It was enjoyable to drink and at £4.99 it doesn't break the bank that something that tastes genuinely nice, bonus!

nobodysfool Mon 27-Jan-14 13:04:55

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?
I was sent the white wine. Bottle was a nice design.

2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?
The first few mouthfuls were light and refreshing but the following ones tasted a little strange. I can only liken it to when you have a wine spritzer and it has too much soda water. Watered down and uninteresting. I don't think I would recommend this to my friends for the before mentioned reasons.

3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?
If your drinking a glass of wine do the calories come into it?If your cutting calories drink some water!

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?
No I wouldn't. The watery taste left me feeling a bit meh.

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?
RRP is perfectly fine but I wouldn't purchase beacause of it's odd taste.

Thanks for choosing me though MN grin

hootloop Mon 27-Jan-14 13:16:16

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?
I tried the rosé, it was surprisingly nice, I didn't notice it was supposed to be sparkling though, maybe because the bottle I got was almost a year past its best before date.
2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?
It is noticeably fruity but does have that cheap wine vinegar smell when you first pour it,
3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?
Yes, It said so either on the bottle, or letter or possibly both.
4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?
I would recommend this to a friend who had complained about getting tipsy too quickly on full strength wine but otherwise probably not as there are much nicer wines out there for the price.
5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?
Probably not, but only because I didn't realise it was sparkling and although I didn't notice that on tasting I assume an in date bottle would be noticeably so and I wouldn't enjoy it.

I did enjoy the wine and wasn't ill despite it being so out of date, it served the purpose of being enjoyable but not getting me drunk, however I would rather have a named variety wine and just drink less.

katiebasey Mon 27-Jan-14 14:07:18

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?
I tried the rosé , my mum and I really enjoyed it...nice to have another opinion... we both thought it was lovely, fresh and fruity my mum goes to a Slimming club and said she would definately recommend to her friends.
2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?
Fresh and fruity , very enjoyable .
3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?
I did notice that Blossom Hill Vie has fewer calories .... always like to watch my calorie intake.... my mum will recommend to her friends at the local Slimming group.
4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?
I would recommend to my friends.... thought it really refreshing.
5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?
I think the £4.99 price is reasonable and would buy again... a lovely light refreshing wine... nice for a lovely summers day !!

ThedementedPenguin Mon 27-Jan-14 14:19:25

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?
I tried the white wine. It was lovely, very light compared to other white wines.

2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?
It was fruity and light tasting. Didn't leave a funny after taste that some white wines do.

3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?
I didn't realise but that is great. Will be telling my auntie who is watching her calorie intake.

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?
Yes I would recommend this wine to others. This is because it is very refreshing wine to drink. Would be perfect for sunny days with a BBQ. Is very light tasting.

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?
Yes, I would try this again. I would also love to try the rosè wine. I'm not a big drinker anymore so it's great to have a reduced alcohol wine that tastes so sweet and refreshing.

LynnyCuddles Mon 27-Jan-14 14:49:15

We tried the Blossom Hill Vie and it was light and fruity. It had citrus and pear aromas with ripe melon & apricot flavors. It was lovely and I would certainly recommend it.

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?
The rose. I shared it with a friend so you get two testers for the price of one!
We enjoyed it. I love blossom hill rose anyway, I must admit I prefer the normal variety.
2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?
Sweet and slightly fizzy on the tongue. I found it a lot sweeter than most other rose wines. Although this was not unpleasant I doubt I would want to drink more than a couple of glasses at once as I find I tightly sickly.

3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?
I do now!
4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?
Yes if they were driving or dieting. Otherwise I'd stick to the usual.
5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?
Hmm, it's a good price for a decent wine. I probably won't buy it again but I know a lot of people who would prefer a low calorie, low alcohol wine and if I ever felt the need to restrict my intake then I'd definitely consider it.

Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?
I tried rose. it was very nice. Light and fruity without the sickly sweet taste you often get in lower calorie drinks.

How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?
Fruity, fresh and light.

Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?
Yes but only as it was part of the description of the product review. It didn't taste low-calorie.

Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?
Yes it tasted good and is reasonably priced.

The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?
Yes I think this is a reasonable price for the product.

chrisrobin Mon 27-Jan-14 16:03:16

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?
I tried the rosé. It was lovely with a light, refreshing taste. It didn't taste sparkling to me though, it tasted quite flat and both my husband and I commented that it would have tasted better with a little fizz.

2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?
Fruity, light, sweet, summery

3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?
I did notice this on the bottle. I'm not sure that calorie content would be an issue for me when choosing a wine though as it is a treat, but I suppose it is an added bonus.

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?
Yes, I would as it was very enjoyable. My parents, like me, are only occasional drinkers as none of us like a heavy alcoholic tang to our drinks but I think they would like this and may well take a bottle to them when I next visit.

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?
Yes, I would buy it again, that is a reasonable RRP. In fact I did try to buy a bottle when we went shopping at the weekend but was unable to find it in our supermarket. I liked the taste and it would mean I am not stuck on the soft drinks at get togethers.

EmLH Mon 27-Jan-14 18:49:02

1. We received a bottle of the rosé.
2. I would say it's fruity, light, smooth and very easy to drink. I only like alcoholic drinks that don't have a very strong taste of alcohol, so this is perfect for me. There's none of the burning you get down the back of your throat with some strong wines. It would be perfect with a chicken salad on a nice summery evening.
I didn't think it was particularly sparkling, it had a very slight fizz to it, as if it had been fizzy and then gone flat. I also quite liked this though as I think that often a lot of fizz can make things taste stronger and they don't go down as smoothly.
3. I only knew about the lower amount of calories because of the test. It's not something I would look for and I'd still buy it even if it had a normal amount because I'm not watching my weight, just looking for lighter flavours. It might appeal to others that I know though so I think it's a good selling point. Would be better off advertising the fact on the front label.
4. Yes, I would recommend it to friends and would also buy a bottle of it if they came over to dinner. My DH thought it was really nice too.
5. Yes, I usually look for wines that are around £5. I don't like to spend any more than that because we're not big drinkers and only like the occasional glass with dinner.

Thanks for the test, I was really pleasantly surprised by how much I liked the product. I might even be tempted to buy a bottle of the white!

mandacp Mon 27-Jan-14 18:59:10

I tried the Rose. my first opinion was-very interesting!
I would describe this as a very summery drink rather than a normalk wine. It was very refreshing and I could drink it easily (and I am a light weight!)
I would reccomend it to my friends
I would enjoy this drink on a saturday night after LO was tucked up in bed!
I was surprised that it is low calories.
I did not get a hangover after this wine which is a rarity!

thank you for this sample....please feel free to send more wine!!! :-)

NannyPlumForPM Mon 27-Jan-14 19:13:23

1. I tried the rose wine - I am usually a rose drinker so could make a good comparison! I thought it was delicious and light- really fruity and summery with no aftertaste even after chocolate smile

2. Sweet, fruity and delicate. It had no bitterness to it and didn't cause any heartburn- a mega plus since I'm 6 months pregnant!!

3. Yes but it doesn't taste lower calorie - it did taste lower alcohol IMO though (which is good)

4. I would recommend it as a lovely and light drink but I don't think I would offer it as an alternative to wine as I believe it is a different drink- still tasty and delicious but a lot lighter and more refreshing rather than earthier

5. I don't think I would pay £4.99 for a bottle for this, maybe the price point needs to be lower as I think I could get the same effect from a bottle of regular wine and a bottle of cheap lemonade in a spritzer for twice the amount of drink. I would buy it for perhaps £3.50, or two bottles for £6. I so find it goes down a little too fast for a fiver a bottle !

chickabilla Mon 27-Jan-14 19:19:46

1. I tried the white Vie and was pleasantly surprised as it was much nicer than other low alcohol wines I have tried. The bottle looked appealing too.

2. Fruity, not too sweet, refreshing and summery. I would recommend it to friends looking for a low alcohol product.

3. I noticed the lower calories; this is not a selling point for me personally as I am not watching my calorie intake but I think it is useful information for other consumers..

4. Yes, I would recommend Vie, it is the nicest low alcohol wine I have tried and would be ideal for a summer afternoon party when you don't want something too heavy.

5. The RRP seems about right and I probably would buy again but most likely in the summer.

MTBMummy Mon 27-Jan-14 19:21:17

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?
I had the rose, to be honest I was a bit disappointed, it tasted like a flat spritzer with too much soda water in it.

2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?
I did like the sweetness, but that really was the only good point. I didn't know it was supposed to be fizzy until I read the comments above.

3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?
I recall reading that somewhere, and that does appeal.

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?
Probably not, as I have said above it tasted like a watered down cheap spritzer

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not
Probably not, it does not begin to compare with the first cape offering. Although if someone brought it to a BBQ I wouldn't be offended.

plentyofsoap Mon 27-Jan-14 19:22:42

I was going to try it tonight, however I checked the sell by date and it said feb 2013! It is a shame as I was happy to give my views on it.

NannyPlumForPM Mon 27-Jan-14 19:28:12

Oh my goodness-
Mines the same, out of date a YEAR AGO!! Anybody know if this would cause damage to a unborn baby? Had a couple of glasses over 3 nights!!

Poor show blossom hill....

julesofdenial Mon 27-Jan-14 19:29:18

1. We tried the rose wine. It was quite pleasant - my husband said that it was nicer with food. I could tell it was low alcohol, but could be good if I was planning to drink a lot at a party!
2. Fruity and rather sweet, probably more so than I like.
3. I did know that it was low calorie - great, makes me happy!
4. A nice summer drink - I think it would have been nicer if it was fizzy.
5. I think that is a little expensive for a low alcohol drink. £4 would be better. I certainly wouldn't buy one that was almost a year out of date! Extremely surprised that we were sent this (only realised after another tester posted this and just went to check the recycling).

winetime Mon 27-Jan-14 19:32:23

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?

I tried the white, which was very nice, it was sweet without being too sweet. It had a fruity fragrance which was pleasant.

2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?

It tasted fruity but did feel like "watered down" wine, not a bad thing as that took away that acidic taste I find many white wines have.

3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?

No I didn't know that, I suppose that makes sense if it has less alcohol in it. If I was calorie conscious it would make a difference, definitely.

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?

Yes, especially to anyone who complains about hangovers. It did go to my head a little (I am a lightweight!) but next day I was not suffering from the effects. I did drink the whole bottle in an evening, so that's about 4 glasses. I would probably recommend it with lunch or perhaps a quiet relaxed night in. I'd probably go for something a bit more alcohol-fuelled for a big night out!

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?

That's about around how much I'd normally spend on wine unless it was a special occasion, so yes I would buy it again as it is within my price range.

lilyloo Mon 27-Jan-14 19:41:36

1. We tried the rose. I was pleasantly surprised it tasted good.

2. It tasted a little fizzy to me which I wasn't to keen on but the overall taste was good. I could tell it was different to the normal blossom hill. However it wasn't sickly sweet like a non alcoholic wine can be.

3. I wasn't aware it was lower calorie and I wouldn't have guessed that drinking it but is a definite selling point.

4. I would recommend this as a lunchtime drink with friends or as an option if you are dieting. Also maybe a nice treat for a midweek drink when you may normally give it a miss in case of a fuzzy head the next day. My head felt fine after a couple of glasses.

5. I think the price is fine but overall I still prefer the traditional blossom hill. However for any reason in number 4 I would happily pay the rrp.

Thanks Blossomhill

cookiemonster66 Mon 27-Jan-14 19:48:04

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?
WHITE - Lovely and smooth and did not taste like other low alcohol wines could easily pass as full strength! wine

2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?
sweet & smooth, went down well! grin

3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?
shock it just gets better and better!

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?
tbwink of course, only if it meant they shared it with me!

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?
hmm possibly would, but def would if it was on promotion or special offer

ThedementedPenguin Mon 27-Jan-14 19:56:39

Did everyone get the email, saying a few bottles were out of date and to contact mnhq so another in date bottle could be posted.?

kinkyfuckery Mon 27-Jan-14 19:58:47

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?
I tried the white.
2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?
Fruity and light. Very easy to drink. It didn't have the aftertaste that a lot of wine has. Some wouldn't like that, but for me it was perfect.
3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?
I did notice on the bottle. Even better wink
4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?
Definitely. I think most people are trying to be health-conscious these days. If you can make a healthier choice and still drink wine, what's not to love?
5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?
Yes, I think so!

muser31 Mon 27-Jan-14 20:18:45

1. White - it was a lot nicer than i expected, very refreshing
2. I would describe it as a light fruity taste
3. I am glad to hear it has less calories as i don't feel as guilty!
4. I would certainly recommend it
5. yes i will buy this again, i cannot tolerate stronger wines as much as i used to, and this is perfect for me as its so light but without taking the taste away.

Lissalad Mon 27-Jan-14 20:27:21

I tried the rose. I love white Zinfandel/ Grenache and this is quite similar so I really enjoyed it. It also had a slight tang!
As above, the rose is like. White Zinfandel. It tastes like full alcohol wine.
I did know it was fewer calories from the add and also the bottle. I am following the slimming world plan so this is great!
Yes, I would recommend to my friends for a night when you fancy a glass of wine but don't want the side effects of standard wine!
Yes, I think the price is fine, and I would buy it!

Thank for the opportunity to try it!

ThedementedPenguin Mon 27-Jan-14 21:26:48

Okay not sure how to add a screen shot but if you get in touch with Michelle mnhq with your postal address and blossom hill will get you a new bottle. HTH

MrChow Mon 27-Jan-14 23:27:16

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?

rose

2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?

Sweet without being sickly sweet! I only had a few sips as pg, but my mum was visiting and she enjoyed!

No. Bonus!

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?

Yes definitely

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?

Yes this is reasonable for a bottle of rose

Anniemousse Tue 28-Jan-14 11:05:43

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?

Rose. I enjoyed it. I like that it is lower in alcohol because I don't drink to get drunk. I can have a couple of glasses of this and just feel nicely relaxed. I had a glass with dinner one night but it didn't really go with food, but it was very pleasnat as a drink on it's own.

2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?

Sweet, light, fruity, easy to drink

3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?

No, but this doesn't bother me as I am not restricting my calories

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?

Yes, because I enjoyed it.

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?

Yes, I probably will, but am more likely to buy aldi's version which is just as nice but cheaper blush as I regularly shop at aldi.

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?
I received the rose, I really didn't like it very much.

2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?
I thought it had a lot more flavour than some of the low alcohol wines than I've tasted before but I thought that it tasted more like a cheap sweet sparkling cider than a rose wine.

3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?
I am quite surprised about that as it was very sweet so I would have expected it to be quite calorific.

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?
No I have had nicer low alcohol wines/spritzers that taste more like full alcohol wine.

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?
No I think that £4.99 is quite expensive for the quality of the product, I've had nicer and much cheaper low alcohol wine and would be more likely to buy full strength Blossom Hill and then make it into a spritzer myself.

Regarding ThedementedPenguin's post, everyone should have received the email but if for whatever reason it didn't get to you please do let me know if you have received a bottle which has passed its best before date along with your address and whether you received white wine or rose. Blossom Hill will then send out another bottle. Blossom Hill have reassured me, however, that the wine should definitely still be drinkable and taste fine!

julesofdenial Tue 28-Jan-14 18:41:43

MichelleMumsnet - I have sent you an email - last night at about 22.20 if that helps!

Lauzifer Tue 28-Jan-14 19:44:41

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?

I tried the rosé, I thought it was lovely, fruity, sweet but with a sharp kick. Very palateable.

2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?

I'd describe it as a light, sweet rose with a refreshing, crisp taste. It's a wine that can be drunk whatever the occasion

3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?

I read that in the letter that came with the bottle, it's an added bonus.

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?

Yes I would recommend it to my friends as most of us drink rosé and it compares well with the ones we usually drink with the added bonus of being lower calories and alcohol.

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?

I would certainly buy it again as I enjoyed the taste. The price is very reasonable.

MostlyCake Tue 28-Jan-14 21:24:27

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?
I tried the white. I really liked it - was light and fruity without the funny after taste you sometimes get with white wines.

2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?
I definitely tasted pear and apricot and would describe it as being a light, drinkable fruity wine.

3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?
No, I didn't know this. Honestly though, the calorie content of wine wouldnt swing it for me, I have to enjoy the taste!

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?
Yes, I have a few friends who are breastfeeding and I would definitely recommend this to them.

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?
Thats a very reasonable price. If I saw it in the supermarket I would put a bottle or two in the trolly smile

GlassCastle Tue 28-Jan-14 23:00:25

Which Vie Variant did you try and what did you think

I am happy I got the Rose because I love pretty pink wine although I am myself, pretty much teetotal drinking maybe once a year and barely a swallow. I don't really like the taste of alcohol. However I do want to find a quaffable light wine that I can drink to join in and be sociable because I do feel left out sometimes. I can see that Rose could be seen as more feminine by many men and the bottle design with its Orchid graphic in pinks probably reflects these stereotypes.

My husband doesn't care about the wine being pink and doesn't consider things like this when he buys. So he had no problems trying it.

How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends

Both myself and my husband tasted the wine and here are both our thoughts.

Husband - Sweet w/ a gentle floral nose. Very perfumed in the glass. It reminded him of high quality Turkish Delight made w/ Rosewater. He didn't detect as much strawberry as I did and had he done so would not have drunk it as he dislikes strawberries intensely! He would describe it as a sweeter wine, one for people who do not like dry wines.

Me- I detected the strawberry cut w/ a warmer deeper note immediately. I hadn't read the description deliberately so as to avoid suggestion. I didn't do my usual 'judder' that drinking drier wines normally invokes so it must be pretty sweet! I would describe it as a Rose wine that tastes both exactly as I would hope based upon its pretty colour! It is gentle but the 'cut' stops it being sickly.I would love to make a Granita with this wine.

Would you recommend it to them? If so, why If not, why not

I would recommend it to my friends that I know like lighter wines. I definitely think a lower alcohol wine is a good thing especially considering the huge glasses many people use but I'm not sure I know anybody who would bother that much about the reduced calories. Most of the men I know drink real ale and they worry about the effect this has on their waistline and the bloating. They might enjoy an ale w/ reduced calories but no reduced taste!

What would be the perfect Vie time for you

I have long wanted to find a rose I could drink on picnics, at parties, BBQ's etc. I could imagine drinking this on Holkham Beach on a warmer Winters day, wrapped in a blanket and also in the warmer months. It feels like an 'outdoors' wine. I don't really drink at home but my Husband does and he like me said he thought this would market well in colder months not just Summer. He sees himself drinking this at an outdoor event such as a concert.

Did I know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill Still Wine

No because I know very little about makes of wines. I know now though.

Any Other thoughts you'd like to share

We would buy this again. Only because I actually tolerated the taste better than I normally do. iIt reminded me of the only other wine I've ever liked called 'Villa Lantana'. I've never found that wine again. I don't drink enough alcohol to worry about the alcoholic volume, neither of us drives with any alcohol in our system and again ,the reduced calories is not a factor that affects my buying choice. But I can imagine it appealing to dieters.

MNHQ I've emailed you a couple of times about this, please could you get back to me? Thank you! smile

98percentchocolate Wed 29-Jan-14 12:26:13

Hi Michelle, received all of the emails but still haven't got my wine! Do you think my postie has nicked it?

museumworker Wed 29-Jan-14 12:49:04

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?
I tried the rose. Please note this is my first review as I noted the bottle was almost a year past its best before date. If I receive a replacement bottle in time, I will review again to see if the taste is different.
I love rose normally, particularly sweet ones. This however was really too sweet even for me. I struggled to drink even a quarter of a glass. I didn't realise until I read this thread that it was meant to be sparkling, but had noticed when drinking it that it had a strange feel on the tongue.

2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?
Very (too) sweet and fruity, with a strange slight fizz - like a rose watered down with flat lemonade.

3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?
No, I don't really think about calories when it comes to wine. If you are watching your weight, probably best to avoid booze altogether.

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?
Not sure I would, because of the overly sweet taste and the funny 'fizz'.

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?
That is about the price we pay for a rose, more if I know I really like it. I would like a low alcohol wine for the occasional treat when breast feeding, but given I didn't really enjoy this I don't think I'll be reaching for it again.

IPokedABadgerWithASpoon Wed 29-Jan-14 14:06:57

Mines out of date too! Have sent a PM smile

attachmentmummy Wed 29-Jan-14 14:09:16

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?
We tried the Rose which was delicious, really enjoyed it.

2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?
It's light and refreshing, slightly sweet, but with lots of strawberry aroma and flavour.

3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?
What a bonus!

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?
I would definitely recommend it, especially for light lunchtime drinking, or to fellow breastfeeding mummies. I think it would be especially great during the summer for barbecues, parties or all fresco drinking. No 'oops, I've over-indulged!' afternoon nap required! ;-)

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?
Yes, definitely. It's a great price, and would be ideal for the summer, as mentioned above.

Thanks for picking us, really enjoyed the wine!

petalsandstars Wed 29-Jan-14 16:50:43

I tried the rose wine and thought it was really nice.

I'd describe it as fresh and fruity without any unpleasant after taste that you sometimes get with wine.

I didn't know that it was less calories but it makes sense as it is lower alcohol.

I would recommend it to friends as it's a good bottle to share

I look forward to drinking it outside in the summer evenings when the children are in bed.

I would buy it at the advertised price but a special offer always makes it more appealing.

tekenaar Wed 29-Jan-14 20:54:25

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think

I tried the white is was so nice and light
2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?
nice and refreshing
3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?
yes that sthe first thing i saw and yes it tasted lighter
4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?
Definitely. I think most people are trying to be health-conscious these days. If you can make a healthier choice and still drink wine, what's not to love?
yes I would recommend it to my friends it would be a great healthy win and I think every one would like it
5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?
Yes, I think so

what a bargain at £4.99 I d buy afew bottles

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?

I tried the rosé, I really liked it. Quite light and refreshing.

2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?

I'd describe it as light, fruity and tasty without the strong alcohol taste (which I don't like in some wines)

3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?

No but I do now.

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?

Yes I would, because fewer calories and less alcohol would appeal to my friends who are mums as something they could enjoy a glass of without a raging hangover.

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?

Yes I would, in fact I'm going to look for a bottle today when I go shopping.

Mignonette Thu 30-Jan-14 13:21:46

Waitrose doesn't stock it in my region sad

They have 'full fat' Vie Rose but not the low cal version. Bit reluctant to buy the full fat as so fussy about wine that I'd probably not like it.

Suesueaxlheck Thu 30-Jan-14 14:00:21

1.I tried the Rose and thought it was light and refreshing, didn't realise it was suppose to be sparkling though , mine was flat ,didn't think to check the use by date, (wine doesn't normally last long enough in my house to expire). Had just done a week of nights so thoroughly enjoyed relaxing with it.
2. Light and fruity , doesnt leave a bitter after taste.
3. Yes lower alcohol = fewer calories , although you do need to drink more to get merry.
4. I would recommend it to my friends, and to my mums WW friends.
5.I would buy it again, hopefully it might have a bit of fizz in it next time.
I am a great lover of lambrini though,so perhaps if it were a little bit cheaper it may win me over( and Im also a tight arse).

AnneEyhtMeyer Thu 30-Jan-14 14:45:36

I'm not a tester but I am surprised at some people talking about drinking it instead of soft drinks - at 5.5% it is more alcoholic than Stella (5.2%).

Bit annoyed that I had to pay £5.50 for it from asda when I can see rrp is £4.99. Also have no idea if mine was out of date or not. It definitely wasn't sparkling! I assume its safe to drink even out of date?

mercibucket Thu 30-Jan-14 19:29:12

i tried the white

it fizzes ever so slightly as you open the bottle but doesnt taste fizzy. it smells lovely, v flowery and fragrant.

it tastes very very light. i am used to oakier 'heavier' wines and this is more like a non fizz spritzer. i didnt enjoy it as an evening wind down drink but it was perfect as an afternoon drink with food and friends

i would recommend it for picnics or afternoon drinking when you need to drive or dont want a headache

i knew it had less calories and as i am dieting that was a bonus

the price is fine

thanks

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?

- Rose. We really enjoyed it, it was very similar to the wine we would normally choose, but even easier to drink. Delicious!

2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?

- Sweet, fruity and very lightly sparkling. Just sparkling enough not to be fizzy.

3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?

Not until this test, no.

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?

I already have.

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?

I will definitely buy it again. We love sweet Rose wines, but are trying to cut down on calories, so this is perfect.

originalkezzy Fri 31-Jan-14 15:14:40

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?

I tried the white over dinner with a friend and we both found the look of the bottle to be appealing and also the smell was lovely

2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?

It tastes smooth and fruity and was very easy to drink

3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?

yes from reading the info sheet given with the bottle, calories wouldn't usually come into it for me when choosing an alcoholic drink

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?

i would recomend this drink to anyone as it was very nice

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?

it is a reasonable priced bottle and i would be likely to buy again

Thanks for the opportunity to test wine grin

Heathcliff27 Fri 31-Jan-14 15:31:25

I had a year out of date bottle too and have emailed MNHQ, waiting with baited breath for my replacement bottle.

RubySparks Fri 31-Jan-14 15:33:37

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?
Rosé, liked it, was a bit fizzy, slightly odd smell, almost vinegary when first opened, had some the day after which tasted better that when it was first opened!
2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?
Light and fruity
3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?
No didn't know that
4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?
Yes
5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?
Maybe though could get similar ordinary wine for that, would expect it to be a bit less.

1. I tried the Rose. Yum yum yum

2. I would describe it as light, fruity and refreshing. Really enjoyed it as did my husband. Would be particularly great in the summer!

3. No I did not know it had 30% less calories. Makes me even happier!!

4. Yes I would certainly recommend this to friends and family.

5. Yes £4.99 is reasonable for this bottle,even though the % is quite a lot lower than a normal wine. I would pay it again. I actually looked for it tonight in my local tesco express but it did not stock it.

meep Sat 01-Feb-14 07:44:45

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?
I tried the Rose - it was light and (a bit too) easy to drink!

2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?
It was fruity and light and would be perfect for a bbq in the sun

3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?
Not until I did this product test. I have to say that calories don't really come into it when I am choosing wine - so this wouldn't be a selling point for me.

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?
If someone was doing a calorie controlled diet I might recommend it

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?
I probably wouldn't buy it again - it is not my favourite wine - and I can get an NZ sauvignon for around the same price!

I tried the rose - it was delicious. I loved it!

It tasted sweet, light and fruity.

I would definitely recommend it to friends and have ready done so.
It's great for a lunchtime drink or a nice glass with dinner. It still went to my head because I am a lightweight but less than normal!

I didn't know it had fewer calories so yes that's a great selling point for me even tho I am not a calorie counter.

At 4.99 it's cheaper than my usual tipple and I will definitely be buying it again as it was delicious

My bottle was out of date but I didn't notice and I'm sure the in date wine would be even nicer!

MiniSoksMakeHardWork Sat 01-Feb-14 10:01:10

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?
I tried the white. It had a very light feel to it and for me was of a very lemon flavour. That in itself was slightly disappointing with the description given having pear and other flavours however this is possibly down to my palate rather than the wine as dh got a much less citrusy flavour than I. I particularly enjoyed the slight fizz to the wine and it went well with our chicken meal that evening.

I think this would be perfect for summer bbqs and picnics where it's nice to have a drink with friends but you don't often want the heaviness of some regular wines.

It was definitely low in alcohol as my first mouthful was quite watery. It took another to bring the flavour through. And there was no alcohol after taste which I find can ruin a wine for me.
2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?
Vie is a very light, sweet and lemon flavour with a bit of sparkle.

3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?
I knew it was lower calorie and this certainly appeals while dieting.

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not? I would recommend the wine to my slimming group as it would certainly appeal to them to have a lighter tipple. My friends are more wine drinkers for enjoying wine and I think this would be too light for them.

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?
The price is reasonable for the bottle of wine. I'd definitely consider buying it again.

Babieseverywhere Sat 01-Feb-14 13:37:23

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?
White. I tried this bottle with my husband, we both liked the wine through my husband felt it was a bit watery.

2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?
Light, delicate flowerly.

3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?
Yes, you told us on the bottle. Good when watching our weight.

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?
Yes, for a summer bbq, especially for a day event, when a glass of wine would be lovely but watching children play and the early hour would make this a nice alternative to a soft drink.

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?
Yes, for summer day time entertaining. But somehow I expected a lower price tag with the lower alcohol content.

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?

White. I enjoyed it - I'm breastfeeding so it was nice to enjoy a few glasses over a couple of days.

2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?
Very sweet, fruity. You can tell that it's low alcohol as it doesn't have the 'hit' of full strength wine.

3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?
I didn't but it's good to know.

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?
I wouldn't recommend it but nor would I tell them to avoid it. I think it's a decent alternative drink but it tastes a lot like a soft drink, I think I'd rather have a soft drink and then have a smaller amount of full strength wine.

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?
I might buy it for a party or gathering especially if I had lots of friends coming who were pregnant or breastfeeding.

TheMouseDancing Sat 01-Feb-14 22:44:25

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?
I tried the Rose.
2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?
Light, fruity, not too strong.
3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?
Yes, which is an added bonus.
4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?
Yes, it is a good option if you are looking for something lighter/not as strong tasting than most wines.
5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?
Yes I thing I would buy it occasionally, price is good. I would be more likely to buy it if it was more sparkling, mine was quite flat.

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?
I tried the rosé, I really liked it, it was very light and refreshing
2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?
Light and fruity
3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?
Yes, it said so on the bottle and in the letter
4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?
Yes I would, it was really easy to drink and I liked that it was lower in calories. I shared the bottle with my SIL and she said she would recommend it as well
5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?
Yes I would, it was very nice to drink and I liked the lower alcohol content, usually after sharing a bottle of wine I feel really full but after this one I didn't which was a good thing!

FanFuckingTastic Sun 02-Feb-14 13:37:49

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?

I tried the white, it was okay, it tasted like watered down wine. If it was meant to be sparkling, I didn't get any of that through.

2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?

I was a nice fruity taste, without any tartness. Bit watery if you like it to have a stronger taste, but I usually drink spritzers so it didn't bother me. Would have been lovely if it had been sparkling.

3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?

That's what the literature said. It's 2/3rd less alcohol, but only 1/3rd less calories, what's going on there?

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?

Probably to my friends who don't like to get drunk when enjoying wine. I'd like to try the rose version myself to see if it is nice too.

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?

Perhaps. It's a lower alcohol version but not really a lower price. It might be nice if that was reflected in the price.

Glitterfairys Sun 02-Feb-14 20:54:30

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?

I tried the white wine and I really liked it . Was a very nice refreshing drink and you wouldn't really know that it was a lighter alternative.

2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?

Light, fruity ,refreshing

3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than
Blossom Hill still wine?

I did know , it's great for people who are trying to lose weight.

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?

I would recommend Blossom Hill Vie as it had a lovely pleasant fruity taste , is light and refreshing and also with it being lower calories than normal wine , it would be a big plus point to my friends.

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?

Yes , I'd buy it . I don't think that's a bad price for a weekend treat.

AlmostMrsRobinson Sun 02-Feb-14 21:25:13

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?

Rose, its the only wine I drink and I'm quite fussy even with that. I have to say that I really enjoyed it. It wasn't obvious from the taste that it was a low acohol wine.

2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?

Fruity, light and refreshing are the three things that initially come to mind. The aftertaste wasn't overwhelming like some other wines. The taste is quite delicate, not too bitter.

3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?

I didn't know, I think this is a plus. So many people are counting the calories!

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?

I would reccomend this to friends that enjoy wine but maybe not the effects or the hangover. Lots of my friends have young chidren so would be reluctant to have a glass of wine or 2 with dinner, this would be perfect for them. All the taste, fewer calories and not as strong as regular wine.

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?

I think £4.99 is a fair price, about the price I usually pay so I will buy this wine in the future. If it was in on the 3 for £10 deal that would be even better smile

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?
I got given the White variant. I liked it. I usually like really sweet wines, this wasn't as sweet but was very nice.

2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?
Fruity, nice as it was sparkling.

3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?
I had read this on the sign up info.

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?
I would and have recommended it to them.

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?
I think £4.99 for a bottle of wine is a good price, I'm not a big wine drinker- I prefer cider- but will buy this and the rose bottle with my next shop.

Thank you for choosing me to test it smile

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?

I tried the white. It was nice, but definitely tasted low alcohol to me. Kind of like a faintly alcoholic Schloer rather than a lower alcoholic wine, IYSWIM. Tasted like a posh juice. I felt as though I needed a large glass to get the desired effect lush

Bear in mind that a dry January may have altered my taste buds a little.

2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?

Fresh, and 'juicy' (as in juice-like). A little sweet, perhaps.

3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?

Possibly, did you not tell us that in the blurb? It rings a bell.

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?

I would possibly recommend it to them as a day time wine. I tend not to drink alcohol during the day, but would possibly have a glass of Vie at a lunchtime or daytime BBQ as it didn't have the same effect on me as standard wine.

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?

If I was looking for a low alcohol wine for a lunchtime meet up, then I would possibly buy Vie. £4.99 is certainly in the right price bracket for the wine we drink, although we tend to buy whatever is on offer at the time - so will usually get a £9.99 bottle for £4.99 or similar.
But to be honest, lunchtime drinking is few and far between in this house, so I probably won't buy Vie again.

I can see its appeal to those who count calories though.

champagnegoldfinch Mon 03-Feb-14 07:00:18

Yes, I think fan hit the nail on the head. It did taste faintly watered down!

champagnegoldfinch Mon 03-Feb-14 07:01:48

Yes, good point by heart. I would buy again if I was BFIng.

champagnegoldfinch Mon 03-Feb-14 07:10:58

Oh, just read the rest of the thread and checked the best-before-date: Feb 2013.

How do I get in touch with MichelleMumsnet?

Prijswinner Mon 03-Feb-14 09:41:51

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?
White - Pleasantly surprised, with the lower alcohol content still a lovely taste, perfect for lunchtime or a lazy summer afternooon.

2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?
Fruity, I would say a taste of Summer, like sweet berries.

3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?
I did know this and it makes Blossom Hill Vie more attractive to me.

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?
Absolutely - A refreshing drink without the calorie content of a normal glass of white wine.

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?
I will buy Blossom Hill Vie again. The price is a bargain for what you get, almost to cheap to believe it is any good, but it is so grab your bottle now it is worth it!

sealight123 Mon 03-Feb-14 19:45:12

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?
I had the Rose wine and it was beautiful. It was light but sweet, just how I like it.

2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?
Light, sweet and fruity

3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?
I did not...I am pleasantly surprised

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?
I would recommend it if they just want a nice glass of wine at the end of the day or a glass with their meal. It's not a drink you would take for a night out on the town, but not every drink has to be that. I enjoyed it smile

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?
I think I will buy this wine, and stock up when on offer, as it is easy to drink and as the alcohol content is lower than other wines it means that I can have a couple of glasses rather than just one :P

idleweiss Mon 03-Feb-14 21:56:17

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?
I tried the white..I wasn't too keen to tell the truth!
2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?
Dry, slightly sharp with citrus notes.
3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?
Yes, I read on the bottle, pretty good! smile
4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?
I would recommend it to them if it was to their taste, and would definitely mention the lower calories!
5.*The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?*
£4.99 is a reasonable price, but I would not buy the white again as it's taste was not for me, I will try the Rose though! smile

Anniemousse Tue 04-Feb-14 00:36:39

has anyone who emailed Michelle received a replacement, in-date bottle yet?

Heathcliff27 Tue 04-Feb-14 08:46:09

No annie, I am still waiting for my replacement

IPokedABadgerWithASpoon Tue 04-Feb-14 08:59:00

Nope, not me either Annie

Anniemousse Tue 04-Feb-14 10:18:03

Ok, not just me then.

hannahem Tue 04-Feb-14 13:15:55

I've not had my replacement bottle either sad

laughalot Tue 04-Feb-14 13:48:27

Me neither !

nor me.

plentyofsoap Tue 04-Feb-14 16:27:32

Nope.

SunshinePanda Tue 04-Feb-14 17:09:29

I tried the rose. Just checked and my bottle is out of date also. I thought it was a pleasant drink but more like a soft drink, like Shloer, than a wine. It had no real depth or complexity to it. Maybe the reduced calories, which I know about from taking part in the testing, would appeal to some. The price is OK but I would expect a little less for low alcohol. Don't know whether it being out of date makes any difference to the taste. Would only mention it to friends if they specifically asked about low alcohol wines.

98percentchocolate Tue 04-Feb-14 20:23:34

Still not had my bottle sad

No replacement here yet either sad

MadMonkeys Wed 05-Feb-14 09:49:03

Tester - Ive had a dodgy tummy so haven't opened my bottle yet... but plan to tonight!"

Steffanoid Wed 05-Feb-14 13:41:54

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?
I tried the Rose, it was really nice, light and fruity, not like having a full strength glass of wine

2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?
As above
3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?
I didn't but i do now

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?
To my friends? yes i would recommend it to them because i liked the taste and i think others would be interested to try a low alcohol/fat version of wine.

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?
yes i would, I don't drink very often so at a special occasion where i really wanted a drink then i would be inclined to purchase it.

zipzap Wed 05-Feb-14 22:04:02

Tester here. Our bottle was out of date but we tried it anyway - and I did email Michelle but am another one who hasn't had a replacement bottle yet.

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?
Rose. I'm a rose fan anyway and thought it was very quaffable - easy to drink with or without food. DH also enjoyed it. I do like the fact that it was low alcohol without being completely alcohol free. There are times that it would be nice to have a drink but because I know that DH has already had a glass of wine or a beer I tend to hold back, just in case one of us needs to drive. I also used to have ME and one of the side effects was a very low tolerance to alcohol - couple of mouthfuls had the same effect as taking a sleeping tablet. So I got out of the habit of drinking lots, and now, even though I'm recovered, I don't drink anywhere near as much as I used to. So being able to have the nice taste of wine without the effect of alcohol would be really nice and I'd probably make sure I had a bottle or two in, ready for whenever I fancied them. In the winter we tend to drink a lot more red wine though, so it would be nice to have this option too!

2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?
Quite a typical White Grenache or White Zinfadel rose but maybe a bit sweeter. It also had a slight hint of flat lemonade - not sure if that is because it was quite so out of date though; will be intrigued to see if the in date one is a little sharper.

3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?
Only because it was mentioned on here before signing up but I would expect a low alcohol wine to have fewer calories than a normal one - not sure I would have realised it was 30% though.

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?
Yes - if they were looking for something easy to drink that was summery. Would stick it in the category of alcopop maybe rather than serious wine - or for when you would otherwise drink something like sangria, Pimms, alcoholic lemonade, etc. It's also probably a bit sweet to eat with winter foods - would be great in the summer with salads, chicken, salmon etc. Would be OK but not a first choice/ideal match with things like beef casserole or shepherds pie! Oh and it was very nice with pudding too - worked very well with chocolate although I may have to try that combination again a few times just to make really really sure grin

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?
I guess I have got used to buying my wine in a deal so for a fiver or less, I get a really nice bottle of wine that has an RRP of £10. So if I actually had to pay that price for it I might think it a bit expensive. However, if it was in a deal of 2 for £7.50 or 3 for a tenner, then that would seem to be much more appropriate (I usually assume that the pricing has been set so that it can be sold for most of the time at an offer price). I would expect it to be priced to be a pound or so more expensive than things like Schloer or Aqua Libra (is that still made?) or Elderflower Presse.

TurnipSlippers Thu 06-Feb-14 12:10:59

I tried the white variant of Blossom Hill Vie and I was very impressed, tasted just as lovely as my usual plonk - my Mum wholeheartedly agreed too.

I would describe Vie to my friends as a smooth, fruity and sweet wine with a light after taste. Easy to drink and perfect for girlie nights in or even summery barbecues.

I did know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories but I wouldn't have guessed by the taste. I am rather happy about it as I'm dieting to lose weight for my wedding in September and have avoided all wine and it is great to know I can have a glass of Vie in the evening and it won't throw my calorie count off.

I would certainly recommend my friends to try Vie because it has a great taste, the label is pretty and it is perfect for those of us trying to lose weight or be a little healthier while still enjoying a treat.

I think £4.99 is a reasonable price per bottle. I would buy it again as it means I could enjoy a glass 'neat' (instead of being mixed with lemonade) and not have to worry that it has thrown my diet off plan!

NannyPlumForPM Thu 06-Feb-14 17:49:04

I sent the email but no replacement here either

julesofdenial Thu 06-Feb-14 21:17:04

Still waiting for replacement here too

hannahem Fri 07-Feb-14 12:02:02

My replacement bottle has just arrived! Looking forward to trying it out smile

deepbreath Fri 07-Feb-14 13:31:10

I commented on the other thread that the bottle that I received was out of date a year ago and emailed Michelle but haven't had a replacement bottle yet.

I did open the bottle and had a little sip to see if the bottle was drinkable but mine didn't taste right so I discarded the rest of the bottle. No worries if Blossom Hill have decided that they don't need any more testers, but I didn't want MN to think that I'd quaffed the bottle and hadn't added to this thread!

angeleyesmax Fri 07-Feb-14 18:12:34

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think? White - we enjoyed the bottle!
2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?light fresh and fruity
3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine? Yes but only because of the letter
4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not? Absolutely particularly to my slightly alcohol intolerant Chinese relatives- I didn't find myself going red at all - a big change for me.
5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not? Not sure- it's nice to have alcohol but the price point makes me wonder whether a nice premium juice would be just as nice.

MiniZilla Sat 08-Feb-14 14:30:29

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?

We tried the white wine.

2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?

I would describe it as fruity and refreshing. It was very light and easy to drink.

3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?

I do now! Less calories is always a bonus but it wouldn't influence my decision to buy a wine. It had no effect on the taste of the wine.

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?

I would recommend it. I think it's a great lighter alternative for when you want a 'longer' drink.

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?

It's a little on the pricey side to say you're getting less alcohol for your money! I would buy it again though, especially if it was on offer. It's ideal for me as I'm still bfing dd and like something with a little less alcohol in it of an evening. I think it would be ideal for a summer BBQ, something you could enjoy over a few hours.

MadMonkeys Sat 08-Feb-14 21:45:44

1. White
2. It tasted fruity and light. Not much depth to it, dh and I both thought it didn't really feel like wine, more the sort of depth,of flavour you get from shloer.
3. Yes, I read it somewhere, maybe on the letter that came with it?
4. I wouldn't particularly recommend it. Its ok for a change but I could get a better wine for a fiver.
5. No, I wouldn't buy,it, I think normal wine is much nicer. This was more akin to a bottle of shloer or the like.

EmLH Sat 08-Feb-14 22:10:30

I added a positive review up thread and bought a couple of bottles today having noticed an offer price of £3.99 in tescos. Thought it might be worth mentioning for those of you that liked it...!

WhenDoISleep Sun 09-Feb-14 07:50:45

We tried the white. 3 adults split the bottle - unfortunately all of us left half a glass as we though the peach(?) taste was unpleasantly overwhelming.

I would describe it as a quite sweet, very fruity wine.

Yes, I knew about the calorie count.

Would I recommend it - possibly. It would probably depend on their usual taste in drinks.

Would I buy it again - no as none of us particularly liked it.

CoolBananas Sun 09-Feb-14 19:34:41

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?
White, it was okay (and just checked the empty bottle, it was in date!)

2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?
A mix between wine and shloer.

3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?
I think I saw that somewhere.

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?
Probably not. Wasn't a great wine substitute, think I'd rather stick with full strength wine plus hangover or pure soft drinks rather than this strange mix of the two.

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?
Wasn't keen on the taste so no.

Rara27 Mon 10-Feb-14 09:46:59

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?
I got Rose. It was ok, tasted good, but flat probably due to being a year out of date No sore head in the morning though grin

2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends? sweet and fruity, easy to drink.

3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine? Not until I read it, but have to say calories is not something I consider when drinking wine

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not? Probably, but Not sure about this, perhaps when I've managed to try a bottle that is in date, and still sparkling

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not? It is comparable to other Rose wines I buy, although if on offer I would be likely to pick this.

mumnosbest Mon 10-Feb-14 11:13:13

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?
white.
It was a really nice, light drink.
2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?
fruty, light, easy to drink lots.
3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?
I do now smile
4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?
Yes because it tasted good and was a nice low alcohol alternative.
5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?
I would possibly buy it again. The taste was lovely but I do tend to look for bottles under £5 unless it's a special occasion. My current favourite is £3.99.

hannahem Tue 11-Feb-14 14:25:55

1. I tried the white, initially the out of date bottle (didn't realise at first) and then my replacement bottle. The in date bottle was much more pleasant, a light fruity taste which was ever so slightly sparkling. I would say I quite liked it, but wasn't blown away by it as it had a bit of a watery taste and was a little too sweet for my liking but it wasn't unpleasant either.

2. I'd say it was a light summery drink, nice for a lunch with friends but not for a special occasion.

3. I would recommend it if I knew they were trying to cut down on calories or on alcohol but otherwise probably not.

4. I would drink it over lunch with friends

5. Yes, I knew it was lower calorie.

6. I enjoyed trying the wine but I think I'd rather stick to drinking my usual wine, just less of it!

hannahem Tue 11-Feb-14 14:27:50

Oops, should have also added that I probably wouldn't buy it again unless it was a very good special offer as I think £4.99 is quite expensive for a lower alcohol wine.

MrsPennyapple Tue 11-Feb-14 20:48:45

1. Which Vie variant did you try � white or ros�? What did you think?
White - normally prefer rose but drink white from time to time. It was sweeter than I expected and I couldn't manage more than one glass, even though I generally prefer wines sweet rather than dry.

2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?
Fruity, I thought I detected a taste of pears.

3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?
No I didn't, but calorie content wouldn't make a difference to my choice of wine.

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?
I'd recommend it to friends if they definitely like sweet wines, but not if they prefer drier ones.

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is �4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?
I might buy it if I was having guests round, to give them the option of a lower alcohol drink if they wanted one. I wouldn't buy it for myself though, it just didn't do it for me.

Additional thoughts: Don't cook with it. I made a chicken stew, which I normally put white wine in, but only had the Vie in the house so I used some of that. It made the whole dish far, far too sweet and not really enjoyable.

Steffanoid Sat 15-Feb-14 08:44:02

hi MNHQ, When is this closing?

lostblonde86 Sat 15-Feb-14 09:22:56

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?
Rose, it was fresh and easy to drink.
2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?
Sweet, fresh, delish!
3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?
Yes, and didn't tastier it, lol.
4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?
Definitely, good price, easy to drink and they would love it.
5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?

Great value for money,will be buying again and less calories!

Apologies for late review, kept missing the delivery man!

Cataline Mon 17-Feb-14 21:16:42

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?
rosé- it was light and fruity and very easy to drink.
2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?
As above! Light, fruity, easy to drink.
3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?
I did. Was talked about in my Slimming World groups this week too!
4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not? For those who are fans of light fruity wines- yes. Also to all my slimming world groups- definitely!
5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?
I think that's pretty good value although I'd be even happier to find it on offer!

In response to the poster above who said not to cook with it, I used it in place of the usual blossom hill Zinfandel in risotto and it was absolutely fine! I suppose it depends on what you add it to?!
Thanks for the chance to try it out for free- much appreciated!

needssomesun Fri 21-Feb-14 20:31:18

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?
We tried the Rose
2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?
I would describe it as light, fruity and very sweet.
3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?
I wasn't aware of this but I don't think I'd ever noticed this wine before.
4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?
I don't think I would recommend it, it was ok but I thought it was too sweet.
5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?
Probably not, I wouldn't say I disliked it but I would probably go for their regular wine.

98percentchocolate Fri 21-Feb-14 20:50:20

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think? I tried the rosé. I found it very tasty and moorish.
2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends? Fruity and light. Excellent for social drinking, though probably not quite up to the challenge of making a bad day better. Best drunk in front of Modern Family re-runs as it won't get you drunk but just tipsy enough to laugh a little harder at Jay.
3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine? I saw that on the bottle, it's ok though - I combined it with some chocolate chip cookies to make up the deficit.
4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not? I would! It tastes nice and gets just the right amount of tipsy. I don't like alcohol much but I liked this.
5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not? Absolutely! I loved the taste and the warm fuzzy feeling it gave me without the sickness. I'm drinking it now so can't comment on the hangover potential yet but I'm sure it'll be grand.

Thank you Blossom Hill and Mumsnet!

1. Which Vie variant did you try – white or rosé? What did you think?
White

2. How would you describe the taste of Vie to your friends?
It is quite fruity and a lovely drink, I can particularly imagine it at BBQs in the summer, or crisps and dips!

3. Did you know that Blossom Hill Vie has 30% fewer calories than Blossom Hill still wine?
I didn't realise before this trial, but given the number of calories in wine, that is fab.

4. Would you recommend it to them? If so, why? If not, why not?
Yes, it's a lovely refreshing drink and very easy to drink.

5. The RRP for Blossom Hill Vie is £4.99 per bottle. Do you think you'd be likely to buy it again? If so, why? If not, why not?
It's a good price, although you can buy normal wine for a little less. I wonder if special deals would help. I would buy it though.

4. I would recommend this to friends. It is good that it has less calories.
5. It is a very good price, I would buy it again.
