CATH Dyson has been announced as the lucky winner of the whole contents of the Martinez Advent Calendar .

The independent wine merchant with premises in Ilkley and Bingley launched the competition on December 1 on its Ilkley and Bingley Facebook pages.

By liking and sharing a post entrants were in with the chance of winning 24 bottles with a retail value of £424.48.

All prizes featured in the company’s 20 per cent off deals which ran throughout December in the Ilkley and Bingley shops.

A spokesman for Martinez Wines said: “The whole idea behind this was to make people aware of our 20 per cent off mixed six offer (throughout December only) which is the largest discount we have ever offered.

“As an independent, the struggle is constant to compete with the larger supermarkets so we wanted to launch an offer that would hopefully draw people into our shops. We worked very closely with many producers and UK agencies in the lead up to Christmas to see what we could do. Luckily, we managed to get about 30 different products on this offer and many were available by the glass in our wine bars.

“We were then offering 24 of these products as a prize by liking our page, tagging a friend and sharing our post.

“Throughout December, every day we advertised one of the products on Facebook so people could see what was on offer and what was available to win.

“The winner was announced on New Years Eve and Cath Dyson was the winner who came to collect early January.”
