Have you ever felt that there are thousands of great wines out there, but that you’re not getting to see them? Well you’re right. Many of the most interesting wines don’t make it onto the high street, being snapped up instead by the country’s top restaurants.
The trouble is that this isn’t much use to you if you’re looking for a wine to drink at home, or take to a friend’s dinner party. So at Square Meal, we’ve used our contacts with some of the country’s top sommeliers to put together a great case (six bottles) of wine for you. The kind of wines that have character, food-friendliness and a bit of class.
All of the wines in this reader offer case picked up gold or silver medals in this year’s Sommelier Wine Awards – a wine competition judged entirely by the country’s top sommeliers. They’re famously picky, so if they think these wines are worthy of a medal, they must be good!
Were it available on the high street, this case of six should retail at over £70, but we’re offering it to Square Meal readers for just £49.99... pretty exceptional for wines that come with a built-in recommendation from top restaurateurs.
Available as a mixed case of six (£49.99 + £7.99 P&P), or a mixed dozen (two bottles of each). So if you’re tired of what you’re drinking and want to try some wines of real character, click here to buy a case online, or call 08448 580690. (Delivery by slurp.co.uk).
