Truffle Risotto Recipe and Le Petit Ballon Wine Club Review

Le Petit Ballon is an online wine club that delivers two bottles of wine straight to your door every month. The wine arrives perfectly packaged so the wine is well protected and ensures it reaches you without any breakages.

Each month you'll receive two bottles of wine carefully selected Former Sommelier Chef at The Ritz.
Tasting advice and super tips. You'll also receive a copy of The Gazette; the magazine that tells you everything there is to know about wine and how to taste the wines in your box.

I don't want to sound like an advert but I really do believe Le Petit Ballon is excellent. I think it's great that you can cancel at any time if you want to; there's nothing worse than feeling you can't back out of something so that's good to know.

The wines in the November box which I received pair perfectly with dishes made with Truffles such as Truffle Risotto.


You wont find the wines from Le Petit Ballon in any supermarket and I love that you can buy a gift card for however many months subscription you want to buy (3/6 or 12 months) and send as a gift; perfect with Christmas coming up. Or of course you can subscribe to a monthly wine box for yourself 😊 The wines in the November box are Mas du Soleilla and Domaine Bérénas.

Le Petit Ballon have an offer on at the moment which is 15% off all gift cards until 19th November just use the code WINEGIFT15 at the checkout.

Or readers of this blog can get £10 off first month subscription by entering GLUG10 at checkout.
Offer is valid until 30th November 2017

Aldi - Nice Wine at a Good Price

Now it has to be said I do like a nice glass of wine!  If you're looking for a proper wine review with all the fancy wording as to whether or not a particular wine has hints of damson, chocolatey undertones and all that, then you've landed in the wrong place - I really don't know very much at all about wine at all.  Apart from it either tastes good or it doesn't (to me) is about the limit of my knowledge.  But if you're just looking to discover some good wines at good prices then please read on.

 
Recently I was sent four bottles of wine from Aldi to try.  I'll be honest as always, I'd never looked at the wines in Aldi, mainly because I tend to stick to the same couple which are Hardys Stamp of Australia or Banrock Station Shiraz Mataro - another Australian wine.  Although I do like wines from Chile and South Africa too. 


So now you know, I'm only speaking about how I personally found the wines and my opinion is most definitely not one of any real knowledge of wine whatsoever.
