To celebrate the launch, we are offering you the chance to win one of four superb wine cellars worth £1,000, each containing the best of the best wines that have been carefully selected by fine wine specialist Bibendum Wine.

The four winners will be invited to sample their cellar at a special tutored wine-tasting evening with the experts at Bibendum Wine. Fifty runners-up will receive the latest edition of a fine wine guide.
