Winter Wine Masterclass
Winter is here and for many wine lovers that means red wine season. But while it may be a given that a red wine is the perfect drop for those heart-warming winter meals, knowing which variety of red to choose can be a minefield, considering the vast array of wines from around the world now available in Britain.
With Christmas approaching, many of us will be entertaining friends and family around the table in the next few weeks, so making sure you’ve got the right type of wine on hand for both unexpected guests and planned parties is paramount at this time of year.
Because when it comes to matching your food to your wine, whether pre-Christmas or on the big day itself, a little knowledge can mean the difference between a good meal and a great one.

Charles has a particular interest in Loire Reds, which are lighter in style than other reds ensuring the festive flavours aren’t overpowered. Listen to our podcast where Chris gives his top tips on buying and enjoying red wine this winter.
