Christmas Wine Gifts

September 27, 2012

Summer was somewhat of a blip, so we thought we would cheer ourselves up by thinking about Christmas nice and early.

We are currently working on bringing you a new range of Christmas wine gifts. We are expanding our range to include some delicious food items, including Venison Pate with Cognac, Pheasant Pate with fine Champagne, Tewkesbury Mustard, Very Garlic Olives, farmhouse cider chutney and Strawberry Jam with Champagne all sourced from independent English suppliers.

We have some ready made Christmas Hampers that will be available from both our shops in Sollihull and in Birmingham. Alternatively you can design your hamper from our extensive wine collection and our delicious food range.

Whether you are looking for something as gift for corporate clients or your closest family members, Connolly's have an exquisite selection of wine, spirit and food gifts and hampers for you to choose from.

Our gift brochure will be available very soon, if you would like to pre-order your copy please call 0121 236 9269 or email sarah@connollyswine.co.uk  Or pop into one our shops in Birmingham and Solihull and ask our expert team about our wine gifts.
