Win a case of McGuigan Wines for Christmas

I’m a little partial to a glass of wine – but as for knowing which wine to buy I’m not very brave. I stick to what i’ve had before, friends’ recommendations plus the rather marvellous blog Knackered Mothers’ Wine Club for a bit of inspiration.

I do know how I like wine to taste though, so I was really pleased to hear that Australian brand McGuigan Wines are re-launching their classic range here in the UK with new labels designed to make shopping for vino a bit simpler.

McGuigan Wine

For all seven types of wine in the Classic range there are three key words on the label that describe the style, texture and fruit notes within the bottle so you can very quickly figure out at a glance, if it’s the wine for you or not.

You can also check out these fun tasting notes…

McGuigan Classic Wines are available at selected retailers including Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Majestic and Co-Op with prices starting from £6.99 (RRP)

However – if you fancy winning a mixed case of the Classic range then you’re in the right place coz I’m sneaking another giveaway in before Christmas 🙂


To win a mixed case of McGuigan Wines in time for Christmas:

There is one main way to enter and several ways to get bonus entries.  You must leave a separate comment for each bonus entry otherwise they will not be counted.

1. Mandatory. Leave a comment below telling me what your favourite type of wine is.

2. For a second chance to win tweet a link to this giveaway as follows: Win case of McGuigan Wines for Christmas @cookingkt #win #prize
Then leave a second comment saying you’ve done so telling me your Twitter ID.

3. Follow me @cookingkt on Twitter and comment to tell me you have done so.

4. And finally you can get another bonus entry by liking the Feeding Boys and a Firefighter page on Facebook too, not forgetting to head back here and comment to tell me you have done so.

Good Luck!


This giveaway is open to all readers over 18 with a UK postal address.  The winner will be chosen using an online randomiser and announced in a subsequent post.

I am running this competition on behalf of McGuigan Wines who will be sending the prize out to the lucky winner. Their decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.

  24. I don’t have a single favourite – it depends on my mood, my meal and the weather, although if you meet me in Majestic Wine I will be mostly hovering around the reds from Argentina and Chile and the New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs.
