Hail Hot Bottlers!

Value Vino is back!  Delighted to bring you more banging bottles at brilliant prices.

Chalk Valley English White 2018 (11.5%) down from £12 to £7 in Morrisons. A finely sliced apple dipped in precision! This is zesty stuff with a tropical tickle, a steal at the offer price of £7 from a stellar English vintage.

Sainsbury’s House Pinot Noir 2019 (12.5%) £4.50. Chill this supple Chilean red for half an hour and bang it out with pizzas. For under a fiver it’s a decent bet.

 Tesco Finest Mosel Riesling 2018 (12%) down from £8.75 to £5.50 in Tesco. Poised between exotic and shrill, this piercing dynamo of a wine is the very essence of fruity refreshment. Stunning with spicy dishes from Jalfrezi to Tom Yum.

Chateau du Rouet Cote de Provence Rosé 2019 (13%) £8.50 50cl Co-op. In a slightly smaller bottle, this is the last of the summer rosé - crisp, scented and easily stashable for a lunchtime picnic.

Agricola Fuster Dardell Organic Red 2019 £8.99 Majestic. Violet scented red that glides from fruity to finesse and finally a gentle surge of structure from the tannin and texture. Cracking stuff for under a tenner and the perfect wine to raise a glass for Organic September 2020. And as there’s Garnacha in here, spot on for International Grenache Day this Friday… never has a wine made more sense in a single moment!


My book FIZZ launches in the USA tomorrow, delighted that it was selected by Amazon as one of their Best of the Month picks. If you’re in the states, click here, for UK cocktail fans, grab my 80 sparkling recipes to keep your mood soaring here.


The latest edition of my podcast is free to all, tune in here to join me and pop icon James Bay with tales of the Rolling Stones, Californian Pinot Noir and what a pop star really smells like!


I’ll be on Saturday Kitchen this weekend pouring the drinks and rocking the recipes, tune in from 10am on Saturday on BBC1.


And if you’re after even more entertainment, take a deep dive into the world of movie-making with producer Michael Ryan (The English Patient, Highlander, The Wild Geese) who I interviewed for the Media Lunch Club here.

That’s it for now, Happy International Grenache Day for Friday 18th which is also my birthday! I shall be celebrating with a glass of the good stuff and raising it to you.

Love to one and all,
