Sunday Times Wine Club Black Friday Instagram giveaway

Prize Draw and Competition Terms and Conditions

Unless otherwise stated, the prize draw or competition is run by Direct Wines Limited (trading as Laithwaite’s Wine) of One Waterside Drive, Arlington Business Park, Theale, Berkshire, RG7 4SW (the “Promoter”).

The prize draw or competition is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Instagram.

The prize

The prize is one Black Friday Mega Deal case (a ‘Promotion’). 

The winner can choose from either the White Black Friday Mega Deal case (which contains 12-bottles of white wine, one magnum of white wine and 2 tumblers) or the Red Black Friday Mega Deal case (which contains 13-bottles of red wine and 2 tumblers).

The prize is non-transferable, non-refundable, non-negotiable and cash alternatives are not available.

The Promoter reserves the right at all times to substitute any element of the Promotion (including replacing the prize with an alternative) as necessary due to circumstances outside its reasonable control.


Entrants must be aged 18 or above at the time of entry and must have an address in England, Scotland or Wales  to which the prize can be delivered. No Promotion is open to any employees of the Promoter or their families (defined as parents, children, siblings, spouses or life partners), or any person professionally connected with the relevant Promotion. The Promoter reserves the right to verify the eligibility of entrants.

You can enter the Promotion by following our Laithwaite’s Wine Instagram account, liking the Instagram message posted by the Promoter and leaving a comment on the post, at any time between 12pm on Friday 29 November 2019 and 11.59pm on Monday 2 December 2019.

Only one entry per person shall be allowed for each Promotion. Any further entries from persons who have already entered a Promotion shall be disqualified.

The winner will be required to submit valid identification before receiving any prize; the Promoter may use the services of an external provider to assist with any age verification. The Promoter reserves the right to invalidate the relevant entry and disqualify the entrant from any Promotion and refuse to award the prize if there are reasonable grounds to believe that there has been a breach of these Terms and Conditions by an entrant.

Duration of Promotion

The closing date of the Promotion is 11.59pm on Monday 2 December 2019.

The Promoter reserves the right to modify, terminate, suspend or extend any Promotion at any time without prior notice.

Allocation of prize

All qualifying entrants will be placed in the draw. Winners will be drawn after the closing date at random from all valid entries received.

Notification of prize

Winners will be notified by direct message on social media within 72 hours of the relevant draw taking place (i.e. by no later than Thursday 5 December 2019). If the Promoter is unable to get hold of the winner by social media, it will attempt to contact the winner by email (where provided).

The Promoter’s decision will be final and no correspondence regarding the prize allocation will be entered into.

Winners will have seven days from the date that the Promoter first notified them to claim their prize. Failure to do so will result in forfeiture of their prize. In case of forfeiture, the Promoter reserves the right to carry out a subsequent draw.

Upon claiming a prize, the winner will be required to send the Promoter full details of their postal address to which the prize will be delivered (if not already provided).

The Advertising Standards Agency requires us to publish the name and county of the winner.  However, the winner has the right to request that we do not publish this information, or that we publish less specific information about him or her.  You can let us know by contacting us via our social media account or by contacting our data protection officer at


The Promoter reserves the right to make any amendment or addition to these Terms and Conditions.

Entries will not be acknowledged and no responsibility can be accepted for entries which are not properly received due to circumstances beyond our control. Proof of entry is not proof of receipt.

Entrants are advised to retain and keep safe these Terms and Conditions. Entry to the Promotion confirms acceptance of these rules as final and legally binding.

The personal information supplied by entrants will be handled in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

These terms and conditions will be exclusively governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of England, unless entrants are resident in Scotland or Northern Ireland, in which case they may choose the law of their place of residence.

The Promoter shall not be liable in any way for a) any costs or expenses associated with claiming or redeeming any prize and not specifically included within the prize as stated on each individual Promotion, b) any damages, liability or injury arising out of or in any way connected with the Promotion or the prize other than those costs and expenses specifically stated on each individual Promotion. Nothing in this disclaimer is intended to limit the promoter’s liability for death or personal injury arising out of the Promoter’s negligence.
