We’ve tried to have a choice of regions and types of grape in our picks for wines, including a couple of locally grown wines – we hope you find something to appeal. The majority are supplied via Laithwaites, so you can always guarantee it’s good quality. We’ve had fun choosing them! This is just an example and choices will vary on a regular basis.

Red Wine

1       Le Croix Chateauneuf du Pape, 2012 (France)                     £19.00

This is a rich concentrated wine with flavours of soft summer fruit through to dark chocolate. A food wine, at its best with flavoursome dishes but most of all when you want something a bit “special” and only the best will do.
