Following the very successful wine tasting hosted by Lidl's Master of Wine - Richard Bampfield, we get his personal updates on what is good at Lidl! The latest is:


I am told that there are people who actually give up wine for the whole of January. I find this hard to believe, especially if you are receiving this email, but either way there is something here for you: If you are still going strong, then you will enjoy these suggestions in the next Lidl Wine Tour which will be in store from January 24th; and, if you are doing dry January, salvation is nigh…..

Dry Whites
Vernaccia di San Gimignano 2017 - £6.99
Falanghina del Sannio 2017 - £6.99
Two lovely, modern Italian dry whites, crisp and appetising - not too concentrated, very moreish.

Pinot Blanc 2017 Alsace - £6.99 - Highly versatile white, just off-dry, perfect with lightly spiced dishes.

Viajero Sauvignon Blanc 2018 - £7.99 - Chile
Spinyback Sauvignon Blanc 2018 - £7.99 - New Zealand
A pair of Sauvignons from different parts of the southern hemisphere, both good examples - why not buy a bottle of each and compare them?

Outlook Bay Chardonnay 2017 - £6.99 - Really tasty example of modern New Zealand Chardonnay, not too oaky.

Faugères Domaine Coudougno 2017 - £5.99 - Good value for a decent, flavoursome red from the south of France.

Viajero Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 - £7.99 - Good, authentic Cabernet - a lot of flavour at the price

The Second Fleet Shiraz McLaren Vale 2017 - £9.99 - Fine, richly-flavoured red from arguably Australia’s greatest region for Shiraz.

With best wishes for the new year
