    A Monthly Subscription of Sommelier Selected Wine…

    Do you enjoy wine, but not sure which bottles to buy? Want to discover new wine? A subscription with Le Petit Ballon is a hassle-free way to get decent and often interesting wines at incredible prices, delivered to your door at regular intervals. We love that Le Petit Ballon offers flexibility in terms of how often you have your wine delivered. We were also impressed with their incredible range, that are obviously hand-picked by a renowned wine expert.

    Le Petit Ballon has no registration fee or tie in and the cases include discoveries from unknown vineyards and wines which reflect the changing seasons – such as the selection this month, great for picnics, or an apéritif. There’s a choice of the Grape Expectations (£24.90 per month) or the Age of Raisin box for (£39.90 per month). We reviewed the Grape Expectations selection. The alternative Age of Raisin box includes prestigious appellations for connoisseurs, and is a supreme selection by Jean-Michel Deluc.

    The truth is that it is a very desirable skill to be knowledgeable about wine but unfortunately many of us really don’t know where to start when it comes to buying it. This is where I think the fabulous people at Le Petit Ballon come in, hand-picking wines selected by one of the highest-rated sommeliers in the world, Jean-Michel Deluc, former Sommelier Chef at The Ritz.

    Every month you’ll receive Two bottles of wine carefully selected by Jean-Michel Deluc. The Gazette, a magazine that tells you everything there is to know about wine, so that you can wow your friends and family with your superior wine knowledge. You also get a very generous 20% off across their range to help stock up that empty wine cellar! And as if that isn’t enough, there’s also fantastic tasting advice and super tips with handy posts and videos. So, you really can’t go wrong. Whether you’re new to the world of wine or a bit of an expert, there’s something for everyone. With subscription services like this there really is no excuse to not be serving your guests the very best.

    We think that this service is the perfect thoughtful gift for Mother’s day
