Hullygully Tue 22-Jan-13 12:41:33

None of you have any taste.



parques Tue 22-Jan-13 12:42:22

Don't mind if I do! Cheers! grin

Hullygully Tue 22-Jan-13 12:43:18

<runs screaming>

Tee2072 Tue 22-Jan-13 12:43:44

Wait, we have to have taste to be on MN? Since when?!?!?!


starsandunicorns Tue 22-Jan-13 12:48:28

Signed up hope i get choosen i only get the really really cheap stuff (live within our means ) ohh a posh wine in my cupboard smile

THERhubarb Tue 22-Jan-13 12:48:59

See you are all missing a trick here. You could accept the free bottle and next time it's someone's birthday; someone you don't particularly like, you could wrap it up and give it them as a present!

You know, Blossom Hill would be fools if they didn't pick me to receive all their free bottles.

THERhubarb Tue 22-Jan-13 12:50:14

"posh wine"?


majjsu Tue 22-Jan-13 12:52:26

Sounds good, either one for me as think i would like both.

Hullygully Tue 22-Jan-13 12:54:07

If someone gave me Blossom Hill I would know instantly that:

1. They hated me

2. We weren't going to get along

3. Both

Picturesinthefirelight Tue 22-Jan-13 12:54:44

Love Blossom Hill Wine but.......

I hate sweet wine so don't think this one is for me.

Hullygully Tue 22-Jan-13 12:55:44


seriously, may I ask, you think you would like a wine described as sweet, flower-smelling, with ripe peach and strawberry flavour?

what do you usually drink? Ribena?

Kenobi Tue 22-Jan-13 12:57:46

Oh god is it sweet wine? Hum. I have half a bottle of Blossom Hill rose in my fridge from the summer as the other half gave me insta-hangover.

Serves me right for buying wine from the cash and carry.

lunar1 Tue 22-Jan-13 13:04:42

Done, I love blossom hill!

LeonardoAcropolis Tue 22-Jan-13 13:06:27

Ooooo! Done

Punkatheart Tue 22-Jan-13 13:06:56

It's a dirty job - but someone has to do it!


Break out the crackers, brie and grapes....

NoMoreMarbles Tue 22-Jan-13 13:08:11

donegrin this is the tester thread i have been praying forwink

SDTGisAnEvilWolefGenius Tue 22-Jan-13 13:12:14

I've signed up too - I hope I get chosen!

Littlemissexpecting Tue 22-Jan-13 13:18:34

I was born to be a wine taster... My dream job!!

CambridgeBlue Tue 22-Jan-13 13:24:33

Just signed up and am interested to know if lower alcohol = less calories. I'm doing WW at the moment and wine is my absolute downfall and all the snacks I consume when I've had a few glasses.

Punkatheart Tue 22-Jan-13 13:25:59

My glass is always half empty. So I need wine!

THERhubarb Tue 22-Jan-13 13:27:35

You know, it would also be good mixed in punch.

Or used in cooking.

I don't know why more people are signing up for this. I told you all already, Blossom Hill are giving me the rest of the bottles. You are all too late. Sorry. Now jog along.....
