Now many of us enjoy a glass or two (or in my case at times three) of wine with dinner or when relaxing with the other half at the end of the day. I can't remember what it was that I had bought online but when it arrived it came with a special offer voucher for Laithwaites. I simply thought 'why not' since then I am very glad I did.

Excellent wine company that really deliver quality wines at more than a fair price.

They are a well established concern who have been trading for over 30 years but have introduced their online service quite recently. The name stems from their original dealings direct with French vineyards but they now offer a good selection of wines from all over the world. They still tend to concentrate on the smaller select wines rather than mass produced stuff and the quality, in my humble opinion, is always good.
