Fenwick Colchester  

Fenwick has a range of hampers, but we love the Sommeliers Celebration Hamper (£300) for true indulgence. Fenwick's master sommeliers have perused the world's cellars to assemble their favourite wines. From France, Taittinger champagne or Williams Chase En Provence rosé are outstanding examples. Velvety Brunello Di Montalcino or stone fruit-laden Ca'marcanda Vistamare evoke sunny Tuscany, while Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon offers a new world alternative. For Christmas delivery, place your order by 2pm on Friday 20th December 2021.
