The Welcome
Give your guests a warm welcome with these crowd-pleasing favourites.

Make your guests feel special with France's most popular Champagne label. Expect white peach, apple and raspberry notes.
An outstanding value alternative to some of the finest French fizz. And it’s exclusive to Majestic. Citrusy. Zingy. Delicious.
The UK’s favourite wine style – a must-have for the festive season. Fresh and tropical, and from an award-winning winery.
The Loire is where savvy drinkers look for great quality, great value Pinot Noir. Expect juicy, crunchy red fruits.


Around the table
Choosing wines to pair with your festive spread can be one of the most exciting parts of Christmas. So we’ve put together a few carefully chosen recommendations for you to enjoy throughout the season’s most important meals.

 

Enjoy with white meats
Pouilly-Fumé is one of France’s top appellations for incredible Sauvignon. Expect ripe gooseberry, gentle spice and a refreshing acidity.
Enjoy with Beef
Incredible flavour – and astonishing value for money. Expect elegant notes of red fruit and black pepper and herbaceous aromas.
Enjoy with nut roast
A delicious Rhône red with rich notes of black cherry, raspberry, blackcurrant and garrigue herbs – and a silky-smooth texture.
Enjoy with fish
A delicious great-value alternative to Sancerre. This is crisp and refreshing with notes of zingy lime and grapefruit with mineral hints.


The Evening
From the buzz of a New Year’s Eve celebration to cosy evenings spent by a roaring fire, these are the perfect wines to see you into the night. From festive bubbly to fireside favourites – ideal for cheese, mince pies, or any festive grazing – complete your celebrations with these special wines. 
 

From the banks of the Gironde in Bordeaux, this has luscious flavours of dried apricot, citrus and honey.
With decadent notes of orange peel, figs and cinnamon, this really is liquid gold. Pair with strong cheese or fruity desserts.
Smooth and mellow, with notes of fig, butterscotch, walnut and spice. Its jammy flavours will complement a strong cheddar or chocolate.
 
Founded in 1588, Croft is the oldest active Port producer. Expect opulent notes of cassis, black cherry and dark chocolate.
