WINE FOR BRUNCH
While you probably don’t want to reach for a big red first thing in the morning, you do have more options than sparkling wine and juice. Look for lower alcohol styles, don’t be afraid of a little sweetness, and given the range of flavours that can appear on the breakfast table, choose bottles that will be versatile with food.

WINE FOR GIFTING
Gifting a nice bottle of wine never disappoints. When choosing what to buy, look for recognisable names with a history of excellence. You might also want to think about bottles that can cellar in case the recipient wants to set aside the wine for some time. And, of course, always consider the tastes of who you’re buying for – if she loves sauvignon blanc, then seek out some top examples.
