This competition closes 30th September 2022.

This competition is sponsored by wine importer and retailer, The company imports directly, prices are keen, and wines include some bottled exclusively for them by top properties.

FromVineyardsDirect is now part of The Wine Company, best known for its Colchester merchant, Mr.Wheeler, but co-founder Esme Johnstone is still involved. The USP of FVD also remains unchaged: Johnstone was the man who revolutionised UK wine retailing when he founded Majestic Wine Warehouses, and his extensive contacts allow FVD to source some excellent wine directly from the estates that produce them, including a range of de-classified wines from famous châteaux.

The prize

This month’s prize could only be described as ‘extraordinary’. One lucky winner will receive a ‘Bordeaux Jeroboam’ of a top Chianti Classico wine. Unlike a Champagne Jeroboam that contains a mere three litres of wine, the Bordeaux version contains a full five litres!  Yes, this giant bottle is equivalent of almost seven regular bottles.

The wine is the Bindi Segardi, ‘La Ghirlanda’ Chianti Classico 2016. Invite a few friends round – maybe quite a few – for a once in a lifetime wine experience as you pop the cork on this beauty. The bottle retails at £200, and will be delivered free to the winner anywhere on mainland UK.
