bicicleta viognierCono Sur Bicicleta Viognier 2015 Asda £6.00 (Tesco £5.50 until 25th July) 13.5%

Rounded and dry without the searing acidity some people don’t like in wine. It’s nonetheless fresh, vibrant with a concentrated stone fruit character.

Food match: pork with apricots.










savoie wine lidlVin de Savoie, Gamay 2014 Lidl £5.99 12%

As the Tour de France riders cycle courageously up the mountain passes of the Savoie, it is only fitting we should drink a local wine in their honour. A lighter style of red, perfect for summer which could even be drunk slightly chilled. Fruity with red cherry flavours, refreshing and easy on the abv.


Food match: ham, pasta, vegetables dishes








chase roseWilliams Chase Rosé 2015 Loki £14.99 13% (Magnum £26.99, Jeroboam £59.99)

Beautifully packaged and tastes as good it looks. From southern France a scrumptious blend of local grapes, it has flavours of white peach and grapefruit.

Food match: Salad Niçoise, salmon
