Perfect Fine Wines for Summer Drinking…

We love to talk about the weather in the UK and with good reason, as it makes each season unique, with its own cuisines and activities. With the sun finally making an appearance, allowing us to enjoy salads and barbecues, we have put together a range of wines perfect for enjoying now.

This includes some of our favourite white wines from the great French regions of Sancerre, Burgundy and Alsace as well as the iconic Cloudy Bay from New Zealand and the sought-after La Source rosé from Château de Sours in Bordeaux. We have also put together a mixed case, giving you the perfect opportunity to sample the wines from this range.

Order online now, or for recommendations and advice on the right wines for you, please email us or call our wine consultants on 0845 330 1855.

Delivery is free on all orders over £200 to mainland UK addresses.
