Wine pairings: a change of seasons


Mother's Day Wine


In short:

Get the best out of your food and wine with this handy guide for when spring is just around the corner.


When the seasons change, the meals you eat will likely change too. And it’s important to make sure your wine pairings are spot on. So whether you’re savouring the last moments of winter or looking ahead to brighter days, we’ve got expert recommendations to suit every taste.

Choose rich wines for warming dishes

If you’re chasing away the cold with a bit of aromatic spice in your food, a fragrant, fruity Viognier is an excellent choice. Men in White Coats is a delicious example of the style, made by a famed South African family. Discover its elegant notes of apricot and white peach.

S&R Douro Red

Roasted meats are part of many classic dishes that are perfect for a chilly evening. And Portuguese red blends pair beautifully with them. Try examples from the Douro Valley, where steep, exposed vineyards deliver juicy, aromatic wines. We recommend S&R Douro Red.

Nothing says ‘hearty’ like a good stew or casserole. Try yours with a smooth Californian Cabernet Sauvignon, like Chronic Cellars Sir Real. Its lavish notes of ripe black fruits and toasted spice will enhance the savoury flavours of succulent meats or winter vegetables.

Pick something fresh for lighter spring dishes

Chapel Down Brut, Kent

It’s a great moment when the weather is finally warm enough for your first al fresco meal of the season. Mark the occasion with Chapel Down Brut, an excellent fizz from the UK’s leading winery. Discover mouth watering flavours of apple, lemongrass and quince.

Italian-style antipasti are great for sharing when you’ve got friends round to enjoy the spring sunshine. Pair them with something food-friendly, like Domini Veneti Soave Classico. It’s an elegant white with a creamy texture and notes of blossom, citrus and pineapple.

Domaine Olivier Foucher Menetou-Salon

If you’re opting for fresh fish or seafood, a crisp, zesty Sauvignon Blanc is the perfect partner. The Loire’s Menetou-Salon region offers excellent quality – so try Domaine Olivier Foucher’s refreshing example. Expect notes of citrus, pear and peach.
