Sparkling film night
WITH Lincoln, Life of Pi and Les Mis all in contention for best film at the BAFTAs, it is bound to be an exciting night at the Royal Opera House on February 10. You can join in the celebrations with, a glass or two of the official BAFTA Taittinger Brut Reserve champagne which will be poured for the stars on the night. We have managed to reserve three of those same magnums for our BAFTA Champagne Taittinger competition. Also being poured at the Opera House will be New Zealand’s Villa Maria Private Bin Sauvignon Blanc 2012 and Villa Maria Private Bin Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon 2011, and a pair of these wines will be included with the Champagne.
Taittinger Brut Reserve is one of my favourite Champagnes and its elegant, clean lines make it ideal to go with the well-dressed stars of the evening.
All you have to do is answer the question below and send it together with your name, address, including postcode, and daytime telephone number, either by email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or on a postcard, to BAFTA Champagne Taittinger Competition, Sarah Freeman, Yorkshire Post Magazine, No 1 Leeds, 26 Whitehall Road, Leeds LS12 1BE, to arrive by Thursday, January 31. Three winners will be selected at random from Grapevine’s oversized ice bucket.
