In the winter it is advised to have heavier wines, big reds such as Shiraz/Syrah, Malbec, Merlot, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo, Carignan and Sangiovese. In whites a rich buttery Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer, Chenin Blanc from South Africa and Viognier mostly from the Northern Rhone Valley.
In the summer, lighter red wines such as Gamay, Pinot Noir or a light Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot from Chile. For the whites a lighter style such as Pinot Grigio/Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and most Italian whites would be more appropriate.
Ideal as an aperitif or a celebration – Champagne Pinot Noir & Chardonnay is a winner or sparkling wine as a Prosecco from Italy or a Cava from Spain, Vouvray sparkling Chenin Blanc from the Loire Valley and Cremant de Bourgogne Pinot Noir & Chardonnay from Burgundy.
If you not fussed about bubbles Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc always goes down well with the ladies.
