Wanderlust Christmas 2019

Wanderlust Christmas 2019

Our selection of Wines for all festive moods and moments

We’ve spent the last few weeks tasting and re-tasting all our wines (perks of the job!) to come to a selection of bottles that are in a particularly good place at the moment and will be ready to shine through the festive season.
Christmas is one of those periods when, considering all the other variables and stress around, the last thing you need is to pick the wrong bottle of wine. We’ve therefore grouped our recommendations not according to style, colour or price, but thinking of each and every occasion that you’ll have to face and hopefully enjoy over the next couple of months. Wines should be there to help release the best festive mood!
Browse our curated selection and keep an eye on your mailbox for special offers over the next few weeks. (If you haven’t yet, sign up to our newsletter to be the first to know about our offer, events and new releases.)

The Essentials

You’ll need some fizz, you’ll need an elegant white and you’ll need a warming red. There’s no way around it. Covering the basics properly is the perfect host’s secret.  Our suggestions below are classical without being boring, recognisable without being predictable. Have them at hand for any impromptu gathering or simply to have on your own after the whole Christmas stress is over.

The Family meal pairing kit

Family meals are, for best and for worst, at the centre of any Christmas celebration. The joy (and stressfulness) is how they bring together relatives that might not have seen each other for months and have very different tastes and preferences. Is it possible to please everyone? It certainly is. Use food as a guide and pick the perfect pairings. After some food and wine everyone will be happy.
Here are our food-friendly picks.

The Company Christmas party

We’ve all experienced the puzzling realisation that we actually didn’t know the people we worked with. Christmas celebrations catalyse revelations, indiscretions and unexpected connections. You want something fun, easy, but unmistakably good (still need to impress the boss right?). Wanderlust is here to help.

Want the wow factor? Wines new and old side by side

For those that love to be British, and drink British!

Local wine has quickly become a staple of every British festive table. The quality hasn’t been unnoticed by international critics with both the quality of the wines and the producers’ production and sustainability standards winning multiple accolades. Make sure you have at least a bottle “Made in the UK” over Christmas.

Wine that’s healthy for you! (Should you need any excuses to indulge)

At Wanderlust Wine we are firm believers in the ‘drink less drink better’ mantra. That’s why we only work with producers that farm and make their wines under sustainable standards. That’s also why we don’t believe in ‘dry January’ or any of the detox paranoia.
Wine is good for you and science is here to prove it! Just think of how part of the diet of some of the regions with longest life expectancy is a glass of wine at every meal.
