Delivery Box from Le Petit Ballon Wine

























I love that you don't have to commit to a box every month; you can stop your subscription at any time.

There are also cards for each bottle of wine with details of the wine as well as tips on wine paring and suggested occasions and a suggested correct serving temperature.  You can also choose the wines you want to receive yourself or  keep it a surprise and let Le Petit Ballon choose for you.

Wines from Le Petit Ballon

























Now I'm certainly no wine connoisseur but what I do know is the Okoma is seriously good!
I find I usually like South African wines anyway, but this was exceptionally nice.

I say the Château Le Grand Verdus goes perfectly with this Beetroot Cured Gravadlax with Tiger Prawns & Lemon Dressing.
