I could do this very well I think grin. The low alcohol content surely just means you can drink more? looking for reasons to continue drinking as many glasses as possible

JollyRedGiant Tue 22-Jan-13 14:24:13

I am pregnant. I would appreciate it, hq, if you could arrange for this particular product test to happen annually :D

MonsterBookOfTysons Tue 22-Jan-13 14:50:54

LadyFace Tue 22-Jan-13 15:00:16

This will be the most popular Mumsnet trial ever! grin

ouryve Tue 22-Jan-13 15:00:48

Very polite, MN. I like being thanked for volunteering to drink wine. I mean, I do like to do my bit and everything grin

THERhubarb Tue 22-Jan-13 15:05:08

I didn't get thanked!


BartletForTeamGB Tue 22-Jan-13 15:08:28

This is nicely timed for the end of my pregnancy. Please pick me! I'd love a cold glad of wine!

EdwiniasRevenge Tue 22-Jan-13 15:32:01

I don't think minor got submitted....any way of checking. ...I would resubmit just in case but that would make me sound like an alcoholic.

SirBoobAlot Tue 22-Jan-13 15:58:23

Only 100 MNers to try free wine? This could be an issue... grin

TaggieCampbellBlack Tue 22-Jan-13 16:10:29

Oh. Sweet. Damn.


Any chance of a proper cheese test?

KatieBMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 22-Jan-13 16:14:53

EdwiniasRevenge we've got your form thank you smile

Longtalljosie Tue 22-Jan-13 16:21:33

Life is too short to drink Blossom Hill

Glitterfairys Tue 22-Jan-13 16:24:00

Done gringringrin

ballstoit Tue 22-Jan-13 16:29:59

I could possibly be persuaded to try a bottle of wine and if it's low alcohol I may be able to drink the whole bottle in one sitting and still walk up the stairs to bed

gazzalw Tue 22-Jan-13 16:40:08

KatieBMumsnet did mine go through - computer playing up today and when I refreshed (getting impatient) couldn't tell if it has worked okay or not...

This would just be the perfect reward after doing the dryathalon...;-)!

KatieBMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 22-Jan-13 17:22:11

Hi gazzalw, yes we have your application - thank you thanks

gazzalw Tue 22-Jan-13 17:37:35

KatieB thanks. [Grin] at only having nine days left of the dryathalon..

ilovesprouts Tue 22-Jan-13 17:40:59

done, cheers wine.

shrimponastick Tue 22-Jan-13 17:44:51


Due to the vast amounts of wine I get through I would be an excellent tester. smile

DollyTwat Tue 22-Jan-13 17:49:37

Did someone say wine?

Madlizzy Tue 22-Jan-13 17:50:50

I really like wine - the taste, the action of pouring a glass and the "ahhh" at the and of the day. However, it is making my belly rather large and I am in the process of seeking out a low or non alcoholic wine which actually tastes nice. I tried the one type that Tesco supply, and I think I'd rather drink my own wee.
