Summer is a perfect time to dive into some new wines. From crisp, refreshing whites to a light red and a fantastic rosé, we’ve picked out some gorgeous options to check out over the next few weeks. Whether you're planning a summer barbecue or party, want to recreate that holiday feeling or simply want to try something new, this lot should fit the bill. 

If you want… a white to pair with seafood

Marotti Campi Albiano Verdicchio dei Castelli

WAS €15.95 NOW €12.45

This award-winner is a fantastic pick if you’re looking for a refreshing white to team with seafood dishes such as linguine with clams. Made with native Italian Verdicchio grapes, it’s packed with zesty, citrus notes and has a fresh minerality. A perfect summer white, in other words. 


If you want… a bbq-friendly rosé

Domaine de L'Ostal Rosé

WAS €15.95 NOW €11.96

Rosé wines are a real crowd pleaser in the summer. This elegant option from the Languedoc works well when paired with all sorts of bbq dishes but it’s also a crisp and aromatic wine to enjoy on its own. (No wonder it’s so good, L’Ostal is owned by the renowned Lynch-Bages.)


If you want… a great aperitif wine

Terredora Fiano di Avellino

WAS €21.95 NOW €16.95

One of Italy’s best whites, Terredora Fiano di Avellino makes for a fantastic aperitif. It’s a crisp and elegant wine with notes of acacia blossom, lemon and honey and a bone dry finish. Lovely on its own, it’s also a good wine to pair with seafood or Asian dishes. 


If you want… a wine to impress

Insight Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc

WAS €18.95 NOW €13.95

New Zealand is renowned for its Sauvignon Blancs and this one from from Eveline Fraser, who was previously winemaker with the renowned Cloudy Bay, is an absolute gem. It’s vibrant and fresh with tropical fruit and herbal notes teamed with a fantastic minerality.  


If you want… a light and fruity red

Leyda Pinot Noir Las Brisas

WAS €17.95 NOW €15.95

Summer’s not all about rosé and white wines of course and if you’re a fan of a glass of red, add this fresh and delicate Pinot Noir to your list. It’s by Viña Leyda, our longtime Chilean partners and teams fruity notes of raspberry and blueberry with subtle herb and earthy notes. Try it with Comté cheese or lobster ravioli.
