Our Christmas Gift to you

Hello!Champagne Bottles- Penet Chardonnet

The final countdown to Christmas has begun! Just two more days until Santa comes down the chimney; I am sure you are all on his ‘nice’ list and will be receiving plenty of bottles of festive cheer! We have been busy sending out lots of Christmas gift vouchers, and if you’re lucky, at the bottom of your tree will be a Grape Escapes wine tour from your loved ones! And for those of you in a last minute shopping rush, we are still able to send out email gift vouchers until 10:30am tomorrow.

We will be cracking open the bubbly, and raising a toast to you all this Christmas – let us be amongst the first to wish you a VERY merry (hic!) Christmas, and a superb New Year. The team at Grape Escapes love to enjoy plenty of wine over the festivities, and we can’t be let loose on your bookings, so the offices will be closed from 13:00 on Thursday 24th December, and re-open on Monday 4th January 2016. If you are travelling with us over Christmas, we will of course still be available via the Duty Manager number.

We’ll be back in January with a boom, exhibiting at the Telegraph Travel Show at London Excel from Friday 8th to Sunday 10th January. We have a
number of complimentary tickets for our customers, so if you would like to come and meet us please feel free to register on their web site (http://travelshow.telegraph.co.uk/guest-tickets ) using the code GRAPE16.
