Your one-stop drinks shop

“Starting on the next page, you’ll find 50 great bottles, each and every one a tried-and-tasted top Christmas pick from me. They’ve made it through to my final list either because they’re great party wines that are good value and crowd-pleasing or because they make particularly appealing matches for festive fare. I’ve also chosen a few that stand out as fine fizzes or sweet gems that would make great presents. To make buying extra-easy and save you time, I’ve grouped everything together by retailer, so this really is a one-stop shop… Happy Christmas!”


Your store-by-store roundup of party drinks, wines for the Big Day and some special bottles to give as gifts




Marks & Spencer Grillo 2017, Sicily, Italy (£7)

A refreshing dry white laced with tangy lemon and lime and a subtle note of aniseed. A ‘house white’ for the holidays.


Soleado Cabernet Sauvignon 2017, Central Valley, Chile (£5 from 4 Dec)

A bargain for parties with fresh cassis and mulberry flavours and an easy-going style.



Florent Rouve Viré-Clessé 2016, Burgundy, France (£14)

White burgundy is a Christmas classic, pairing well with the turkey and any seafood starters. This one tastes of apples and mandarins with a long, toasty finish.


Kendal Lodge Cabernet Sauvignon- Merlot-Cabernet Franc 2016, Stellenbosch, South Africa (£10)

Impressive blend with ripe cassis and spicy, peppery twists. One for roast red meat.
