Gift Inspiration for Wine and Food Lovers
It’s the season for giving, for eating and drinking, for cooking, reading, seeing our friends and family. We hope everyone has a wonderful time and finds a moment to sit, contemplate and enjoy some great wine you’ve saved for a special occasion.
We hope you also have a moment to read our article of ideas for charities in the UK where you can make a donation to or contribute your time to in order to give a little something back to those who are in need.
Cellar Maison are donating £500 to Great Ormond Street Hospital. Helping children with health challenges; conducting medical research, education, and supporting whole families during difficult times.
