Free Greek wine
« on: Thursday, 24 August, 2017 @ 02:16:54 »
No, it's not the Robola Wine Festival all over again! This is for those in the UK, where it's not easy to get Greek wines at a decent price. As far as I know, there's only two Greek wines stocked in the supermarkets: Mavrodaphne of Patras and Retsina (which is getting harder to find):

 
        Waitrose 75 cl £6.95              Tesco 75 cl £6.00       Asda 75 cl £5.78        Morrisons 75 cl £5.50


              
Sainsbury's 75 cl £5.50   Sainsbury's 75 cl £5.50


If you haven't already seen the ads, Sainsbury's are currently offering 25% off the price of six or more bottles of wine. Normally £5.50 a bottle for Kourtaki Mavrodaphne or Retsina, the price for six bottles would be £33. This offer brings the price down to £4.125 a bottle, making a total of £24.75 for six bottles. For the normal price of £33 you now get 8 bottles, or two 'free'.

So far as I know, the offer ends Tuesday, 29 August.

If you can't find Mavrodaphne in with the red wines at Tesco, try the 'Other' section in white wines  :iroll:

For those in the UK...




Well, Greek-style week at Lidl, some of the stuff is clearly labelled as "Produced in Germany" although quite a bit comes from Greece.

Such as the Mythos and ouzo   :)

25% off Mavrodaphne at Tesco until 18/09/17, makes it £4.50 /bottle, 8 bottles for usual price of six.
Try the White Wine section if you can't find it  ;)

Some good reasons from the Telegraph to drink it: Red wine: the unexpected health benefits
