The 5 Best Wines To Try This Month

Autumn is very much in the air and, as the nights get longer, we've selected the 5 best wines to try this month if you’re planning cosy nights in, dinner parties at home or box set marathons on the couch. Whether you’re a fan of a big, bold red wine or a fruity, aromatic white, our top picks more than deserve a spot on your wine rack this October!

NEW VQ Finca Venta Sauvignon Blanc

Castile–La Mancha, Spain

WAS €13.95 NOW €10 (Part of our autumn wine offers.)

Sauvignon Blanc lover? You have got to check out the new VQ Finca Venta Sauvignon Blanc. The grapes are harvested at night to retain the aromas and flavours of the wine, which hints at the quality you can expect in this bottle. This is definitely one to try with friends over tapas.


Longview Yakka Shiraz

Adelaide Hills, Australia

WAS €21.95 NOW €17.95 (Part of our autumn wine offers.)

This is the flagship Shiraz from Australia's Longview Vineyard, which is run by the Saturno family (including brothers Mark and Peter, pictured here). Beautifully balanced and bursting with flavour, it's a top match for pasta dishes or slow cooked lamb - perfect autumn fare!


Marqués de la Concordia Reserva

Rioja, Spain

WAS €19.95 NOW €12.95 (Part of our autumn wine offers.)

One of our top-selling Riojas, Marqués de la Concordia Reserva is a perfect choice for a cosy night in. A classic style of Rioja Reserva at a fantastic price, it’s full of delicious bramble fruit notes with a touch of spice. Enjoy a glass on its own or with your favourite nibbles.


NEW Lievland Vineyards

Elgin , South Africa

WAS €15.95 NOW €12.95 (Part of our autumn wine offers.)

Another fantastic new arrival is this beautiful South African Sauvignon Blanc from an historic winery that's been brought back to life. It's a wonderfully aromatic combination of herbaceous and tropical fruit notes - if you're a fan of a Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, we think you'll really like this wine!


Château de Caraguilhes Les Jardins

Languedoc-Roussillon, France

WAS €18.95 NOW €12.95 (Part of our autumn wine offers.)

Thinking about trying organic wines? This firm customer favourite is excellent value and comes from one of France’s top organic estates. It’s a silky gem of a red, with fruity aromas – think raspberry and blackcurrant – and a trademark herby ‘garrigue’ note.
