There’s no time like Christmastime. The twinkling of tree lights, the incredible aromas wafting from the kitchen, the lovely hubbub as family and friends gather, and, of course, the happy clink of glasses. This year we’ve asked members of our team to reveal their personal favourites and answer some Christmas questions too. For the inside track on the festive season’s nest, read on and get ready to celebrate in considerable style.
After mulling over a range of contenders from some of the finest growers, the team made their final selection based on outstanding quality, approachability and value.
Celebrations need Champagne and sparkling wines. There’s something about the way they complement the twinkling lights, the crackling fires and the general air of magic.
If you’re looking for presents that will go down well with wine lovers, you’ll find something for even the most discerning here.
Size does matter – at Christmas more than any other time of year, but our big bottles don’t impress with their size alone.
We all love presents and annual subscriptions really are the gifts that keep on giving. We’ve teamed up with Author, Salon host and The Sunday Times wine critic, Damian Barr.
Each case offers a really well balanced combination of great wines. From our own label selection to the perfect line-up for Christmas Day.
This year the team have come up with some really creative pairings to take you right through the season. Just one example is a Beaujolais like the Moulin- à-Vent from Labruyère.
All the wines we choose are great wines, but because the big day itself demands something extra special, we’ve created this capsule collection of some of the very best from Bordeaux, Burgundy and beyond.
Mapping the domaine’s history from its monastic beginnings to its position as one of the world most celebrated wine estates, this wonderful book is a must for wine connoisseurs and historians everywhere.
