The Wine Society’s Picnic Hamper
Our bestselling Beaujolais every year and an easy win for your wine rack. The 2019 is classic Beaujolais-Villages, ripe yet fresh and balanced, with attractive red fruit perfume. A versatile wine that tastes particularly good slightly chilled.
Light in style and all about the purity, this is a lovely aperitif to serve with nibbles to get everyone in the party mood. Prosecco, grown in the province of Treviso, has long been the aperitif of choice in Venice, and increasingly all over Italy, and now in the UK too. Unfortunately, many come from anonymous grapes grown on the plains and sweetened to hide their lack of character. The finest and best come from the hilly vineyards of Valdobbiadene, mostly from small family holdings. Our wine is just that. We buy it as simple 'Prosecco di Treviso', because 'Valdobbiadene DOCG' commands a premium price, but what counts is in the bottle.
Picpoul de Pinet, now a cru of the Languedoc in the south of France, produces a clean, full-flavoured white and is a perfect partner for seafood. This comes from Condamine l'Evêque, the estate owned by Guy Bascou, leading light in the appellation.
