Christmas Recommendations

Christmas suggestions.

Everybody has different tastes (We are not all Man U supporters!) and it’s the same when it comes to wine, so you must allow for this when entertaining over the festive season. Below are a few recommendations. Full tasting notes are on the web site.

Having friends and family over? You are going to be opening quite a few bottles so don’t want to be spending too much. Choose from the following:


Aveleda Loureiro €14                                                                                                                                        From the Vinho Verde region of Portugal this is a great drinking wine, light and fresh, suits all tastes.

Portillo Sauvignon Blanc €12.50                                                                                                                   A little drier, but will be very popular.

Albarei Albarino €15                                                                                                                                           More serious with lots of fruit and flavour.


Segredos, Alentejano €12                                                                                                                                 Lovely soft red will keep everyone happy.

Portillo Malbec €12.50                                                                                                                                       More full bodied, great all rounder

Lab Reserva   €14.50                                                                                                                                         They will love this, rich oaked flavours

If you are a Chardonnay fan and want to be a little selfish and want a white that is fruity and slightly oaked go for Villa Blanche €14.

The Cotes du Rhone €14.50 would also suit you in the red.
