About this deal

This pretty pale pink rosé from the Languedoc in the south of France is all white peaches with a citrus twist. The little-known Italian grape arneis is hard to find on shelves – and usually a lot more expensive – so this is a real find. Go beyond the discount deals and discover the can’t-go-wrong crowd-pleasers, perfect reds to go with your Sunday roast, the best wine to drink with chocolate, plus some unexpected suggestions for your next girls’ night in.

And the novelty of travelling the world had definitely worn off by the time I left to go on maternity leave. Who do you see as your target audience and what is the brief you get from the Daily Mail about what they want?Wine is about far more than just what's in the glass (although that's important too); it brings us together and helps us to find a moment to stop, connect and share stories. Ever found yourself standing in front of a wall of wine in the supermarket looking for something – anything – that looks familiar/not too expensive? By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. However the edition that arrived was not the same as pictured therefore unsuitable for our collection. When I did Saturday Kitchen with Jason Donovan recently I had to be reminded to not stare at him when he wasn’t speaking because it was a bit of a giveaway.

We take pride in offering a wide selection of used books, from classics to hidden gems, ensuring there is something for every literary palate.

Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. If you want to re-teach yourself how to talk about wine in a way everyone can understand then treat yourself to a copy of the Knackered Mother’s Wine Guide. I wrote the book about eight years ago and future-proofed it as much as I could but (rather brilliantly) the wine landscape has changed with new regions emerging and old grape varieties coming back into favour.

Helen McGinn is the author of award-winning wine blog The Knackered Mother's Wine Club and three books including The Knackered Mother's Wine Guide, Teetotal Tipples and Homemade Cocktails. Useful, interesting and very funny - every woman who owns a corkscrew or knows about screw-caps needs a copy of this book. I’ll try out lots of different wines and even though I usually have a pretty good idea of what’ll work, I love finding a surprise pairing.Go beyond the discount deals and discover the can't-go-wrong crowd-pleasers, perfect reds to go with your Sunday roast, the best wine to drink with chocolate, plus some unexpected suggestions for your next girls' night in. Here she shares the highs of what it’s like being Helen McGinn and the ‘Knackered Mother’ at the same time. Made in the same way but with different grapes and from a neighbouring region in Italy, it makes for a properly refreshing change.
