We love this idea for a festive night out or office party

They've given their brilliant wine-tasting packages a festive twist by adding mulled wine and panettone as a complimentary extra.
The package is just £29.90 and includes five high quality Italian wines, a sharing platter of Italian meats, cheeses and breads, a dessert wine, their home-made tiramisu – and the Christmas bonuses of mulled wine and panettone.
A barista will introduce each wine to you as you go along, then they leave you to enjoy it all at your own pace.
