Aubergine and Mushroom Bourguignon

This gutsy vegetarian one pot wonder combines the meaty textures of aubergine and mushrooms to produce a really hearty dish. The deep flavours should match well with a medium to full bodied wine with slight earthy notes, like a smooth New World Cabernet Sauvignon. Seek out South African examples for best results.

Top 30 Best-Selling Red Wine



There's quite a New World modernity to this Malbec with its chocolate and ripe tannins, but they're in decent balance and there's a plush warming black fruit to finish.'

The Producer

In the Cahors region in the south-west of France, Château Vincens lies off the beaten track, close to Luzech, where the Vincens family has built up its holdings of vines to the 33ha cultivated today. Philippe Vincens now runs the property with his sister lsabelle, though their Father Michel still keeps a very close eye on the vine

Game Sausage Rolls

Who needs a plain old sausage roll when you can have a game sausage roll? The ultimate buffet nibble, these will go nicely with a medium-full bodied red from Cahors with rich, dark fruit flavours to pair with the gamey notes. Full recipe

The Producer

The history of Carinena has been closely related with wine for many centuries and the reputation of its wines are now being recognised around the world. In 1415 when the King of Spain heard that Fernando 1 of Aragon was planning a trip to Nice he asked Fernando to take with him some of the wines from Carinena. In 2002 a new modern winery was built with state of the art facilities but keeping many of the good traditions of Spanish winemaking.

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. Full recipe

Top 10 Best-Selling Red Wine



A blend of the rare Caladoc grape with Tinta Roriz, this wine is all juicy fruit. Yes, a light sense of structure gives the wine shape, but the bold berry fruits give it a refreshing, ready-to-drink character. Enjoy now. Wine Enthusiast 87 pts

The Producer

Founded by wine-making legend José Neiva Correia in 1998, DFJ Vinhos is located in the Lisboa region which stretches north along the coast from the capital Lisbon. A simple philosophy with an ambitious aim: to transform the rich and diverse Portuguese varieties into top quality wines that are accessible to all. Quality and value for money are key, and the estate even buys in used oak barrels and employ two coopers to take them apart and strip them back to the new wood – as good as new for a fraction of the price. DJF is not short of fans, with more awards than any other Portuguese producer of the last 20 years, including red wine of the year at the IWC and twice Portuguese Winery of the Year in the New York Wine Competition since 2012.

The Producer

Vinas Alto Roble (meaning tall oak) call the beautiful town of Yerbas Buenas in the Maule Valley home, although vineyard sites are scattered the length and breadth of the Central Valley area in the Colchagua, Curico and Maule production areas. Timing proved right for founders Francisco Achurra and Patricio Larrain who bought a small Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard in the area in 1993. Growing recognition for Chilean wines led them to invest in neighbouring vineyards, with a gradual move towards the cooler, higher altitude sites.

Slow cooker Beef Brisket

A super-simple one pot recipe using a flavoursome cut of brisket. Try with a fruity, medium-bodied red to contrast nicely with the meaty, savoury sauce. The Chilean Rio Mataquito Cabernet Sauvignon will work a treat. Full recipe

Top Wine

I've had this wine in three cases and I have to say it comes out top every time. A smooth red that I love drinking on its own or with a light snack.

By Jermaine on 13th February 2019

Excellent, easy-drinking wine at an excellent price

Medium bodied wine with an initial hint of cherries and other fruit flavours, followed by a discernible vanilla finish, though I could not detect the promised fig flavours. Lighter alcohol content (ideal for mid-week) and good value for a very drinkable wine, with or without food accompaniment.

By Mike on 16th January 2019

Best wine I've had for ages

Got this in a mixed case,they were all good with this the standout best! I will be ordering more,it goes with most food,also delicious on its own,just lovely.

Well balanced

Lovely juicy, drinkable wine with date/fig on the nose and palate.
A reasonably priced wine that punches well above its weight.

By Douglas on 06th November 2018

Good all-rounder

Lovely wine which isn't too fruity or dry. Goes with anything or on its own!
I loved it!
