Best Wines for Barbecues

What makes a good BBQ wine? In our book, they’ve got to be great value, easy-going and taste great with a range of foods, from burnt sausages to charred Halloumi. Something soft and fruity with good body should go down nicely. We’ve included:
3 X Suelo Argentino Malbec Red from Argentina - A malbec with a little more elegance than average
3 X Vila Regia Douro Red from Portugal - Another surprisingly good Portuguese find
3 X Casas del Bosque Carmenère Red from Chile - Quality winemaking from a boutique winery
Save yourself the bother of choosing twelve wines from the shop and let us deliver these direct to your door in time for the fabled barbecue weather. You won’t regret it…

Three very food friendly reds with three of each included so if one really takes your fancy you’ll have plenty left to quaff. We’ve discounted them to just £7.16 a bottle. That’s £85.99 for twelve, a saving of £21.89 per case off the RRP. These wines have that extra flavour and finesse you won’t find on the shelves of any supermarket.

Fast forward fifty years and current owner Sebastián Zuccardi was awarded with a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2016 by the International Wine Challenge.

Vila Regia 2016, Douro

0 review(s)

Be amazed at how such a jam-packed-with-flavour wine can just be 12.5% alcohol. Thanks to grapes ripened in the idyllic Douro Valley, and the magic touch of top winemaker Luís Sottomayor. Portuguese wine that gives astounding value for money

The Producer

World-class winemaker Luís Sottomayor first produced Douro Valley's Vila Regina in 1989, long before table wines were being made in the fortified production dominated valley.

The grapes are selected from choice vineyards in the upper Douro and majority are found at altitude.
Luís Sottomayor's aim is to produce bright, lively wines for youthful drinking, quite the opposite to the fortified age-worthy numbers he produces at Sandemans and Casa Ferreirinha.

Feijoada

A robust, flavoursome Portuguese pork stew that's not for the faint-hearted, this needs a full, ripe red wine to stand up to the porky flavours. Try this rich Port variety blend from the Douro as a lovely food match. Full recipe

The Producer

Family owned winery Casas del Bosque was founded in 1993 by Juan Cuneo Solari. The son of an Italian immigrant, he had always dreamed of having his own vineyard and chanced upon an area of the Casablanca Valley, 100k due west of Santiago, with its pine forests, olive groves and small, white abandoned adobe houses. He chose to name the winery Casas del Bosque, or “Houses of the Forest.” The winemaking team are evangelical about translating the character of the vineyard and grape in to the final wine, using longer than average skin contact to extract extra flavour from the grapes. Some vineyards are under organic management and the winery is currently beginning the process towards Wines of Chile Sustainability Certification, which is the first step on the way to organic certification.

Very good wine.

This is a wine that is hard to dislike. In fact, it is a great all-rounder. Drink on it's own or with food. You can't go wrong with this one!
