Laithwaites Festive Pours: The last minute present wrapping frenzy!

When do you wrap your Christmas presents?

Are you one of the more organised among us, with everything bought, wrapped and ready to go before you’ve even eaten your first mince pie? Or are you more likely to be dashing to the shops Bodybuilding on Christmas Eve because you’ve just realised you’re out of tape?

Either way, the pile of things in need of gift paper, ribbon and tags can seem daunting and never ending. That’s why we think the job of wrapping presents is always made easier with a glass of wine to hand!

Once we’ve made sure all of our wine-loving customers have received their orders, we’ll be settling down to wrap our presents with a glass of Andresen 10-year-old White Port. It’s smooth and inviting with dried fruit flavours and a deliciously long finish. We like it chilled with a slice of Christmas cake. It has the added bonus of being Father Christmas’s favourite … so we’ll be pouring him a glass too!

Then on Christmas Day, we’ll be settling down at the dinner table with the perfect festive food and wine pairings.
