I'd love to, if they've produced a low alcohol wine that doesn't taste of flat Shloer or elderflower cordial, count me in!

ThePathanKhansWitch Tue 22-Jan-13 09:36:57

Oooh lovely.Pop of a wine cork is my favorite sound.

Stropzilla Tue 22-Jan-13 09:40:22

Yummy. Done!

Tee2072 Tue 22-Jan-13 09:44:37

Wine? Testing wine? Now that's a MN taste test. grin

jojane Tue 22-Jan-13 09:50:57

Chaoscarriesonagain Tue 22-Jan-13 09:52:45

Done :-)

EdwiniasRevenge Tue 22-Jan-13 09:54:59

Someone bought me a bottle of this for Christmas.

Haven't opened it yet.

Didn't realise it was low alcohol angry. As is angry that someone had bought me low alcohol wine when there's nowt wrong with the real stuff.

Happy to add my feedback when I've drank it...will I still be entered for draw or do I still need to sign up and be sent a free bottle.

EdwiniasRevenge Tue 22-Jan-13 09:56:07

...hell why don't I sign up anyway and get a free bottle (slaps head in bemusement).

TheTiger Tue 22-Jan-13 09:59:08

I think I would be an excellent wine tester!!

ClaraOswinOswald Tue 22-Jan-13 09:59:17

Would we like to product test wine ?

I anticipate this one being very popular. If selected, anyone fancy testing at the same time? We can have a bar thread.

Jagsy Tue 22-Jan-13 09:59:49

Great! Done.

Lookingforthebrightside Tue 22-Jan-13 10:03:51

Wine testing, I reckon I would be really good at that. I have lots of valuable experience in this area! grin

EdwiniasRevenge Tue 22-Jan-13 10:03:52

Done...but it asked why I wanted to taste test and couldn't thinmate of anything sensible thatbdidnt make me sound like an alcoholic grin

TheDeadlyDonkey Tue 22-Jan-13 10:04:46

Done smile

Gracelo Tue 22-Jan-13 10:13:18

I grew up in a wine-growing region. Wine tasting is basically in my genes.

Hullygully Tue 22-Jan-13 10:13:41

I would just like to say one thing:


Altho hats off to their marketing team.

Bet theres way more than 100 volunteers for this one!

Tee2072 Tue 22-Jan-13 10:22:02

Well, that's not going to get you a bottle to try, Hully!

Edwina I think I put 'Because it's wine. Do I need another reason?'

Do you think that was bad? grin

Jins Tue 22-Jan-13 10:22:42

Can't understand low alcohol wine. There's so many alcohol free drinks that actually taste nice.

<disclaimer. I have never found a wine that I'd drink and would rather stay sober if wine is the only option grin>

lubeybooby Tue 22-Jan-13 10:24:44

Oooh wine! grin

Hullygully Tue 22-Jan-13 10:35:40

Tee - they couldn't pay me to drink that stuff. I actually like wine, that stuff is not worthy of the name.
