13ft high wine-filled advent calendar

It’s that time of year again! And our much loved, wine-filled advent calendar is up again this Christmas. Actually it’s not just wine that will be up for grabs this year, we’ve got a whole host of treats in those boxes. Behind each door is a stunning gift to be won every day during December in the run up to Christmas. Pop into Salut to enter the draw, you just need to put your name into the ice bucket (the sooner you get your name in the more chances you’ll have of winning something) – it’s the perfect excuse to indulge in a glass of wine or two.

We thought you might be interested in a few advent facts…

?Our advent is probably the biggest (modesty forbids us from saying the best) advent in Manchester, measuring a massive 13ft x 5ft (4m x 1.5m)?

?Made with 24 magnum boxes it is filled with over £700.00 worth of goodies. Each box contains a gift ranging in value from £11.50 – £100.00?

?It’s a completely original design and it’s home-made. It took 4 days to plan, paint and decorate it, and the first time we put it up it took 6 hours. This year we were a bit slicker and it took just 3 hours to put up?

?We bribe people we know and love to help us put it up, and consequently copious amounts of Champagne are consumed during its construction!?

Our talented Daniel Mee has done a little video of us putting up our fabulous (though we do say so ourselves) advent calendar:

We Love our New Website!

Well as you can see, our new website is live and we’re thrilled to bits with it.

A big change is that you can now buy our Salut gift cards online. These are not just for use in our Enomatic machines, they can be used against any goods in Salut including wines to take home or drink in by the bottle, spirits, beers and food.

You can get your tickets for events online too, and we’ve got some brilliant tastings lined up for you.

We decided not to try and sell our wine online as the list is constantly being updated and we didn’t want to disappoint you by not having what you wanted in stock.

You can also see other items that we have in the shop, like our glassware and and soon we will have loads more goodies for you to choose from so watch this space!

The Salut Spotlight is so we can highlight anything that we think you might find interesting, you’ll see this change between wines, winemakers, wine facts… all things wine (although Kimberly might sneak some beer in there and Dan’s Christmas cards are currently showcasing).

We cannot thank Craig and the Nothing But Epic team enough for all their hard work, and for putting up with last minute changes, tweaks and hissy fits!

Also, a massive THANK YOU to our Dan.

All of the photos on this website are his, and we love that he really captured the feel of Salut and it’s inmates!

He’s also designed and photographed the super-cute Christmas cards made to hold our Salut cards – see them here.

If you love his photos as much as we do and would like to contact him please feel free to through Salut or via:

We hope you like it as much as we do!
