On the grapevine

Head to Hoults in Huddersfield for good deals on champagne and port, including Bollinger at £26.99 which isn't quite the cheapest in town, but it is pretty close and you don't have to buy by the six-pack.

There is a good range from the small and excellent port house of Krohn. Try their silver-medal winning Rio Torto Reserva at 11.99. There is a range of old vintage ports, including Warre's 1985 at 49.50, Dow's 1980 at 85 and the fabulous Warre's 1966 at 115. 01484 510700.

Deals galore

Lewis and Cooper in Northallerton are busy with a range of offers including Voyager Claret 2005 and The Cross Pinot Noir 2007 from New Zealand at 6.99.

Tasting time

If you can't bear to go home until the tree has been decorated then head to Latitude in the Calls in Leeds to taste a range of Christmas liqueurs on December 23. The bottles are open between 5pm and 7pm.

Fiendish quiz

Don't forget to order your copy of the Yorkshire Post for New Year's Day. That is when you will have the chance to win a fabulous trip for two to Navarra in Spain. If you are going away and you miss your copy, you will be able to see the quiz on the Yorkshire Post website.
