"Blossom Hill is the nation's favourite wine*, and we're proud to be known for making taste enjoyment easy. We've benefited from decades of wine maker's knowledge and alcohol innovation expertise to deliver a quality tasting reduced alcohol wine based drink; Blossom Hill Vie 5.5%vol. With its elegant, light and fruity taste it is the perfect choice for those occasions when you'd like a drink without the higher alcohol content - like lunch or early evening.
NEW lower alcohol Blossom Hill Vie is available in White - with hints of citrus, pear and apricot flavours and Rosé - with a floral aroma, ripe peach and strawberry flavours. Both are v. elegant, v. delicate and v. tasty choices - Vie 5.5%. If you prefer a sweeter style drinks, then Vie is perfect for you. We think it's v. tasty, but would love to hear what you think!

bemybebe doesn't "vie" mean life? Im also disliking it with the implications of "get a life"grin grin

bemybebe Fri 25-Jan-13 15:43:28

apparently it means vineyard in Romanian.
hmm, whatever

JenniferHelen Fri 25-Jan-13 16:44:49

Done! Fingers crossed x

I would like to volunteer for Laithwaites wine club, Naked Wines, or or the like. My talents would be better suited to these, and I'd offer them for free. Selfless, see?

MumVsKids Fri 25-Jan-13 22:54:33

When do we find out??

<a little inebriated and out of vino here>

itsallinmyhead Sat 26-Jan-13 14:17:36

Done. I think the bar thread idea sounds like a grand plan!

If I'm chosen, count me in. grin

Maryz Mon 28-Jan-13 00:27:37

Marking place to find out what it's like.

Sadly, being in Ireland, I'm not eligible for these tasting thingies envy

MildredIsMyAlterEgo Wed 30-Jan-13 12:18:07

Just had email from Katie telling me the wine is on its way! Yay grin

Sparklingbrook Wed 30-Jan-13 12:19:31

I haven't. sad

NiniLegsInTheAir Wed 30-Jan-13 12:22:47

OMG I've actually been selected for this! Thought I had no chance. How sad is it that I nearly cried in the office when I read the email...grin

Sparklingbrook Wed 30-Jan-13 12:23:41

Sorry Sparkling sad

Sparklingbrook Wed 30-Jan-13 12:29:40

Well I got to test the Method washing stuff so I shouldn't really complain Mildred. I could go and buy some and do my own test. grin

McNo Wed 30-Jan-13 12:46:52

Excited to test smile

Yay I've been chosen too smile

KindleMum Wed 30-Jan-13 13:52:02

Yes! Free wine on its way!

Fillybuster Wed 30-Jan-13 14:41:42


I wonder if my willingness to slag off be honest about sweet wine is why I wasn't chosen???

Another willing volunteer for Laithwaites, Virgin Wines etc etc here smile

SparklyVampire Wed 30-Jan-13 14:45:20

Iv'e been chosen too!, yay free wine grin

LiveItUp Wed 30-Jan-13 16:20:31

Nothing for me either. Like you Sparkling, I did get the Method laundry liquid which I really liked couldn't drink it though

Snazzynewyear Wed 30-Jan-13 16:25:07
