2. For an English Sparkling Wine: Boco 

The Drink: Boco by House Coren (£26)

The Lowdown: A new sparkling wine has burst onto the English wine scene, made using the Charmat method and one of the first of its kind in the UK. Boco by House Coren, is a high-quality Charmat method sparkling wine made in Sussex using top-quality English grapes. Just like the method used in Prosecco, the secondary fermentation that occurs under pressure creates carbon dioxide and gives the wine its natural fizz. Expect a taste of peaches, ripe pears, a hint of raspberry with a long, clean, citrus, and green apple finish.

Made from 100% Pinot Noir, hand-picked and whole-bunch pressed, the award-winning Chapel Down Discovery Series Pinot Noir Rosé 2020 is beautifully light in colour, akin to the Provence style of the Rosé Renaissance. It offers a light and delicate character, making it a natural partner with shellfish. With hints of cranberry, raspberry and citrus, this almost weightless wine is fresh and clean.

4. For a Taste of España: Savor 

The Drink: Savor Wine’s Spanish White (£15)

The Lowdown: Savor is a female-founded vegan and sustainable wine brand that merges some of the best things in life – wine, food and travel – to create an immersive way of experiencing wine.

5. For a Chardonnay: Bolney Wine Estate

The Drink: Estate Chardonnay 2020 (£24.99)

The Lowdown: 2020 was the most challenging of years for everyone, but one positive that came out of it for Bolney and its customers was that the Chardonnay 2020 grapes ripened to perfection – perfect timing for the release of the estate’s first still Chardonnay this summer.

Bolney Wine Estate firmly believes that this is the time for the renaissance of Chardonnay – the new varieties being produced are made in a fresher, more fruit-driven style compared to a few years ago when they were heavily oaked. The cooler climate in the UK has also resulted in Bolney’s Chardonnay 2020 retaining more apple and citrus characteristics than Chardonnay grapes grown in warmer climates. It is a textured, crisp white with citrus, apricot and orange peel, finishing with creamy brioche and honey – and is the perfect choice for a chilled summer wine.

6. For a Limited-Edition Prosecco: Pale Fox 

The Drink: Vintage Pale Fox Rose Prosecco (£29.95)

The Lowdown: Hot news: Pale Fox is launching is 2020 Vintage Pale Fox Rose Prosecco – a limited run of bottles, released in two batches, one in September and the second later in the year. Pale Fox Vintage Prosecco Rose contains a blend of white Glera and red Pinot Noir grapes that work harmoniously to create a structured, complex sparkling wine reminiscent of red berries, pomegranate and white flowers. The pinot noir grapes are pressed and then left with the skins for only a couple of hours at the most, which results in a much paler colour. This is more reminiscent of a Provencal rose, as opposed to a rose Champagne.
