Naked Wines

We have been buying wines from Naked Wines for a few years now and have only every had one bottle of wine that we didn’t really like.  But that was no problem at all as Naked Wines have a wonderful customer service department who will replace any bottles you don’t like, or that are accidentally broken for any reason with another bottle. 
If you have a look on the Naked Wines website you will see that you can either select your wine by the bottle (minimum order is 6 bottles) or you can get some great selections that have been carefully put together for quality and customer ratings. 

We have just bought the Deluxe Christmas Collection with 18 fabulous bottles of red and white wines, champagne and port and this special Christmas collection doesn’t stop there, Naked Wines are also including:

FREE glass decanter (worth £42) 
FREE olive oil (worth £12.99) 
FREE artisan coffee (worth £9.99) 
FREE olive oil (worth £12.99) and a 
FREE wine opener, as well as –
FREE delivery

 All this at a massive saving of £146.29! At £156.99 for all the wine and the added free extras this offer sells out very quickly, so I am glad that I became a Naked Wines Angel a few years ago as this gives you huge savings every time you buy from Naked Wines. 
What is a Naked Wine Angel?

  • Naked Wine Angels save 25% (and up to 50%) off every bottle of wine they buy.
  • As an Angel you get a FREE premium bottle of wine in your basket every month.
  • You support winemakers directly and therefore get better wines as a result.
  • Invest £20 (or more) a month into your Naked Wines account and you can use this on any subsequent orders you make, whenever you like.
There are no contracts or obligations so you can cancel at any time which is reassuring, and we have saved so much on quality premium wines being Angels.
I wanted to include Naked Wines in my round up of Christmas hamper ideas as I have gifted cases and bottles of wines from them every Christmas for the last few years and they are always very gratefully received and in fact many of my friends have gone on to become Angels as a result.  
50% Off A Case Of Naked Wines!

Naked Wines have kindly put together a wonderful special offer just for My Family Ties readers, a case full of all the wines you need for a very special Christmas.  The beauty of this offer is you will get more than 50% off your Christmas case of Naked Wines with everything you need for the festive season, including Prosecco, six bottles of premium reds and five bottles of tried and tested quality white wines.
