Readers of Jim's Loire get 40% reduction off the price of tickets for The Wine Gang's three Christmas wine fairs in November. You will pay £12 a ticket compared to £20. 

A message from Tom Cannavan, one of the founders of The Wine Gang:
'The Wine Gang has three fantastic Christmas wine fairs coming up in November, in Bath (2nd@The Guildhall), London (9th@Vinopolis) and Edinburgh (30th@The Assembly Rooms) - see

We believe these are the best value wine events in the UK, with the five members of the Gang on hand to advise all day (myself, Joanna Simon, Anthony Rose, Jane Parkinson and David Williams), up to 600 really high quality wines on tasting, a pop-up shop to buy the wines you like at discount prices and an exceptional programme of masterclasses at each event. 

An entry ticket for each event costs £20, but we have a special code for our favourite bloggers of BLOG40 that will offer your readers tickets for just £12 AND will take 10% off any masterclass tickets. There will be lots of Loire wines there of course, and people like Yapp exhibiting, but the standard of wines really is high.'
