Laithwaites Mixed Wine Cases

If December (and January) is a never-ending fiesta of hosting and dropping in to visit loved ones, be prepared with a case (or two) of wine. In our opinion, Laithwaites offers an excellent selection of mixed wine cases, so if you can't decide between reds, whites and sparkling or you want to sample a variety of quality wine, it's a cost-effective way to stock up on holiday booze.
