Save £5 on Drappier Champagne!

Perfect for all celebrations, for a limited time only Drappier Carte d’Or Champagne is only £29.95 (usually £34.95)!

This is a gorgeous champagne that enbodies the very essence of the Drappier style.

With its very high proportion of Pinot Noir, one is almost tasting a Blanc de Noirs. Champagne with a fine aromatic richness, it opens with aromas of stoned fruits such as white vineyard peach. A spicy hint announces a powerful and complex palate. A vinous Champagne of lovely complexity with a characteristic note of quince jelly.

Bernadi Prosecco is Back!

Just £9.86 (save 10%!) if you buy 12 bottles, our popular thirst quenching Prosecco is back just in time for summer!

Perfectly balanced, this is a soft, fresh wine with the wonderful, prosecco style bouquet of fruits, apples and apricots.

A great choice for hot summer afternoons, or accompanying light pasta starters!

Summer Italian White Wines!

As summer is just around the corner, we have a great collection of white wines from Italy for you to try! Perfect for an afternoon in the sun, or for accompanying a light meal outside in the longer evenings, we’ve selected 5 wines that we think you’ll love…

1. Castel Firman Pinot Grigio. This is a lovely wine from northern Italy and we think if you are used to supermarket Pinot Grigio, then once you try this you’ll never look back! Pairing well with white meats and fish, this wine is fresh and fruity. £9.95. > To buy Castel Firman Pinot Grigio online click here…

2. Gemellae Vermentino. This is a delicate wine that matches superbly with seafood. From the island of Sardinia, this has become one of our favourite white wines. At just £11.95, this is a great wine. > To buy Gemellae Vermentino online click here…

3. Organic Bianco. As the name suggests, this is a completely organic wine suitable for both vegetarians and vegans. The label on the bottle says “Perfect for post-work wind downs and a great party wine!”. We can’t argue with that! £8.95.> To buy Organic Bianco online click here…

4. Rosa Bianca Pinot Grigio. Another Pinot Grigio which we think will help convert you! This wine pairs very well with mushroom-based dishes as well as lasagne and grilled fish. The palate of this wine is dry and softer than the Castel Firma and slightly fuller in body. £7.95.> To buy Rosa Bianca Pinot Grigio online click here…

5. Verdicchio Colle Stefano. Looking for a nice alternative to Sauvignon Blanc? This is the wine for you! This Verdicchio has notes of melon, apple and flowers and pairs well with olive and almonds. On top of a great taste, this wine is also organic and has become one of our more popular whites.> To buy Verdicchio Colle Stefano online click here…
