More on Naked Wines - Offers and Competitions‏

As a Naked Angel, I get occasional emails from the company's founder, Rowan Gormley, with details of special offers and competitions to enter.

A while ago, I was tempted into buying a case of mixed wines for just the cost of the duty plus delivery - that worked out at the bargain price of about £2 per bottle.

I subsequently failed in my attempt to persuade Portuguese wine-maker Mário Negreiros that he should pick me as the winner of a competition to win a trip to visit his winery, but I learnt quite a bit about Portuguese wine in the process.

More recently, I was prompted into spending the £40 voucher I got when I signed up to the Angels scheme by the combined offer of a free bottle of D'Aquino Merlot (pictured left), apparently, one of just 400 available, along with 33% cashback (for Angels) and free delivery (overs over £100).

Naked's current competition, open to anyone in the UK, whether an Naked customer or not, is to declare their undying love to a sweetheart (just one, mind) on the Naked Wines site with a chance to wine a romantic prize, courtesy of winemaker Alessandro Botter.

Many years ago, I harboured ambitions of becoming a poet and scribbled down a few sonnets but common sense and financial realities subsequently prevailed and a career in accountancy beckoned.

It's a while now since I wrote any poems and, as someone who eschews the idea of over-priced gift-shop tat at this time of year, the closest I usually get to a declaration of love is surreptitiously supervising the kids making home-made valentine's cards for their Mum.

However, with the offer of a weekend in Venice on the cards, it's time to dust down those rhyming couplets and get composing - much harder than writing a tasting note.
