ABS Has Christmas All Wrapped Up

As the weather is on the change and the nights are drawing in, we are turning our attention towards the festive season and releasing our 2020 Christmas offers.  This year we have Christmas all wrapped up and are focussing on ready assembled “Christmas in a Box” kits, with everything included to take the consumer from Christmas morning to the morning after.

There are 4 different Christmas cases available at a range of price points, with each selection containing 6 different wines.
