IT WOULDN’T be Christmas without a few bottles of festive spirit – and you could have your Christmas tipple for free thanks to the Daily Echo’s Win Christmas competition.

We have 12 cases of Get Wine Wise wines to give away to lucky readers to help them through the festivities.

It’s a corker of a prize and 12 readers are in with a chance of winning, giving them the perfect start to a perfect Christmas.

Get Wine Wise aims to help people understand more about wine, enabling them to make informed choices, not just based on the price.

The Get Wine Wise road show is currently visiting 25 of the biggest Tesco Extra stores across the south with their travelling wine bar.

They are offering the chance to sample wines with support from sponsors, Official Australian Wine, [yellow tail], Official Californian Wine, Blossom Hill Winemaker’s Reserve, Official South African Wine, Kumala, Official Spanish Wine, Viña Albali and Official New Zealand Wine, Villa Maria.

Anyone who pops in for a taste or visits the website will learn the difference between cuvee and cépage.
