Thank you for voting for The Essex Serpent

What happens next?

Once we receive all the votes, we’ll add them up and that will be the decision made!

Yes really... We completely trust you. And it's only fair, given you've taken a chance to pre-order a wine you've never tasted in a box you've never seen.

Now the BIG decisions are out of the way, we can pass this on to our fabulous designer Ed, who will work his magic on the design once more, to get the box looking picture perfect and ready in time for summer!

Bursting with ripe blueberries, raspberries and coffee, the new vintage of our customer-favourite Merlot is even better than the last.

Rave reviews from critics and the press

We are LOVING this Sauvignon. A triumph!

I don’t want a bottle of this wine. I want a ‘tregnum’ in a stunning designed box that slides effortlessly into my fridge, giving me the pleasure of pouring 18 glasses of layered, luxurious, super-cool Grüner whenever I wish.

A bag-in-the-box wine or a work of art? It’s had to tell in this case although the answer is probably both.

Great wines in too-stylist-to-hide boxes

The Times Magazine

This pink is vibrant, fruity and easy drinking with that quintessentially Provence mineral core. Delicious.
