The new issue of Halliday Wine Companion magazine is out now and heaving with drinks ideas for the festive season.
We turned to five people in the know to share their wishlist of drinks for the party end of the year, each within a specific budget. Starting at $150 and moving up to $1000, the selections are invaluable. And while you might expect the choices within the bigger budgets to be out of reach, there are some surprising value quaffers across the lot.
Also included is Tyson Stelzer’s buying tips and top Champagne and sparkling picks across a range of price points, creating a handy outline for lovers of fine fizz. UK-based wine writer provides a dozen international wines for summer drinking, and we also share wine matches for the approachable recipes from chef Matt Wilkinson and wife Sharlee Gibb.
Throw in some wine-related travel inspiration for the Adelaide Hills, Queensland and Malibu in LA, plus a breakdown of standout wine bars in Paris, and you may also be booking your next trip before you know it.
PLUS...this issue comes with our handy festive guide with great gift and food match ideas for seasonal dishes. With recipes, cocktails and top wines, this guide is not to be missed.
