Oh, I forgot about wine, can you rec me a nice white and a nice Rose? I don't need to buy any food for Christmas day.

Oh my goodness, so much alcohol.
H has his beers, he's got 3 cases of bud. There's already wine in that i'm working my way through, and i've got a bottle of baileys.
We're not hosting anyone for christmas so don't need too much stuff really.
Wine (we got all our wine when morrisons did the half price wine then a further 25% off so we spent £60 odd on wine for £180 worth),
Fresh orange juice
Cheese board (5 cheese, crackers, figs, grapes, pickles, chutneys, )
Snacky bits (from marks)
I'm sure there's more but not got my list handy

Ooh, I need cheese as well and meat from the Butchers as well. I have not thought this out very well have I?
I haven't added any alcohol to my shopping yet.

You want a Sauvinon Blanc for the white Fi and I'm guessing a White Zinfendal for the rose. It's the one everyone drinks & tastes like blackcurrant juice. Echo Falls is the brand.
Personally I like Hardy's or Kumala is OK too.
I got a lovely Shiraz Rose from sainsburys at the weekend 3 for 12 and they had offers on Sancerre rose at 15 a bottle so getting some of those.

This is just for us as we don't drink anything else and haven't got any visitors, or if we do they will have to drink what we have in.
Crates of Bud
Sparkling Rose Wine
Crisps and dips
Cheese and Crackers
Tin of Heroes
Stuff to make Chilli and curry I'm going to make before hand so I can bang it in pots and freeze cos I don't want to be cooking loads.

www.tesco.com/.../Details This one for the White?
I am hopeless at buying wine, I am really am!

OOh, I will get some cava or sparkling rose as well.

Perfect choices for guests Fi. Maybe see if the Echo falls are doing 3for£12 on a white. Pinot is acceptable too, as is Chenin Blanc.

The only Rose I like is Blossom Hill Crisp and Fruity and the Sparkling Rose I love is the Jacobs Creek one, its usually about £12 a bottle but is reduced to £6 in Asda.
Cool, thank you. I'll have a look.
