Pink Elephants Through The Post! Review with images

AdvantagesWine delivered to your door without any fuss.

DisadvantagesSome of the finer wines are rather pricey!

"...bill inviting us to join ***LAITHWAITES*** Laithwaites is a dedicated internet wine merchant – for want of a better description. Their tagline gives a good idea of what they are about – “From the vineyard to your door”. Hopefully the clever amongst will have worked that out!

AdvantagesExcellent value for money, you'll never buy supermarket wine again

DisadvantagesThe Priory here I come!

"I've been a customer of Laithwaites( formerly Bordeaux Direct) for some years now, and in recent months I've been ordering from their website, partly because it's so convenient, and partly because after years of telephone ordering I'm sure they recognise my voice and must think I'm some kind of an alcoholic.

AdvantagesGood choice of wine, upmarket choices, will deliver

DisadvantagesUpmarket choices, let down on delivery

And I waited. And ..." Read review

AdvantagesGreat choice of wines delivered to your door

DisadvantagesSo many great offers its hard to resist!

"Laithwaites is one of, if not the largest home delivery wine merchants. They deliver cases of your choice of wine directly to your door, as often as you like. The service is available by post, telephone or from I first discovered Laithwaites in a magazine, one of those special offers where you buy a case and get one free, just to get you signed up. So I did. There was a choice of all red, all white or a mixed case. The wines come ..." Read review
