I've not tried this myself but a heads up for anyone interested

Gran Fabrica Carenina Gran Reserva is now £6 ("50% off)
Couldn't find any reviews here but seems well regarded on Tesco wine website
Unfortunately this doesn't seem to play into the hands of double discount while they are currently running 25% off 2 cases of Spanish, otherwise this would have been super cheap @ £4

There's an extra 15% off two cases at the mo, I just grabbed some everyday reds, the Fabrica (£5.10) and the ever reliable Casillero del Diablo Reserva Shiraz (£4.25).

With free delivery.

I had a voucher which ran out last week, I was going to wait for the next mag which always includes a £5 voucher but thought it may not come until after the free delivery period ends, so I gain nothing. The extra 15% off already heavily discounted wines swung it.

If I get the new mag in the next few days and I like the Frabrica I will get another case, the free delivery is valid until 3rd Nov.

You have both done rather well :) The double discount is a puller for sure

Averaging at £4.58 / £4.67 a bottle delivered, can't be bad.

Tesco are shipping a load of wine this week.

I'm very behind - I don't know how any of the 2012 Macon Village wines are drinking ? I'm still concentrating on finding the last of the 2010 Rhone offers, 2010 clarets and burgs when I can afford them, or waiting.

In pursuing 2010 Rhones, I did take the bait......

Chateauneuf at 49% off ! = £10.20 net (less 40%, less 15*0.6%)

On the Oz Clarke scale, that equates to £3.19 worth of vino, which is 16 times more than plonk :wink: I'm not sure if 16 times more is better, whatever better means, I should go to confused dot com and sort myself out.

Here's hoping.
