Best Wines Online
I love hunting online for thrilling wines – bottles of specialist character that light up the moment and live long in the memory. Buying by the case offers the best value and cuts out all the heavy lifting. Try emergingvines.co.uk – superb for English wine – while passionevino.co.uk is great fun for Italian wines and there’s a well curated selection of natural wines at nattyboywines.co.uk.
The Wine Atlas Feteasca Regala NV (12%), £5, asda.com. Britain’s best-value white online – surging with tropical freshness and scented splendour.
Vertiges 2020 Vallée du Paradis IGP (14%), £10.49, laithwaites.co.uk. Voluptuous and fruity, sunshine has been lavished on this super-supple red. Absolutely delightful.
Racine Pinot Noir Bruno Lafon & François Chamboissier 2020 (13%), £12.40, hhandc.co.uk. Light and bright as a cherry swinging from a star. Divinely pure.
Penn Croft Bacchus 2020 (12%), £22.99, tivoliwines.co.uk. Dazzling, crisp and delicious, this is benchmark British brilliance – splash out on this tangy, zesty treat.
