    Vinomofo Wine Deals

    I received a "heads up" on 9/09 about the MV GSM offer, clearly indicating it was Haselgrove The Switch, as I had bought the 2014 and 2015 previously. IMO, the offer on 11/09 is almost certainly this wine - code nos. match. I enjoyed the 2014 (bought 3 cases), but not so the 2015, which I...

    Bought a dozen, tried one, bought a second dozen. Very good wine at the price point. Nice fruit driven style, not to rich, balanced, no obvious faults.

    Re: Vinomofo secret wine deals Haselgrove "the switch" seems a match pricewise (based on 2013) but 2014 not seen on website. No alc% match. Still looking. RussM

    Re: Vinomofo Offer Helen and Joeys Layla Pint Noir 2013 Hi all Pinophiles. I note that this wine has been offered for some time.I have searched for opinions or reviews with only limited success.
