Start the bank holiday weekend in style with a glorious wine guide from our friends at Chadwicks Inn Maltby.

Whether you’re barbecuing in the garden, curling up on the sofa or tracking down the perfect sips for a special supper, restaurant owners and wine experts, Helen Gill and Lee Tolley, guide us through five fantastic wines to help get the bank holiday weekend underway. 


Pop, fizz, clink >>

Henners Brut, East Sussex, England NV

12% ABV 
38% Pinot Noir, 34% Chardonnay, 28% Pinot Meunier

“An award-winning English sparkling that would be a serious contender against any champagne. It has notes of apple, pear and toasted brioche. A wonderfully elegant fizz, and a favourite here at Chadwicks.”


Think pink >>

Provence Rosé (Domaine de la Vielle Tour), Provence, France 2018

13% ABV
45% Grenache, 35% Cinsault, 20% Syrah

“A perfect summer wine with its classic Provence pale pink colour. Wonderfully dry with flavours of summer fruits such as raspberry, with a delicate acidity.”


Sweet something >>

Albariño “Orballo” (La Val), Ríax Biaxas, Spain 2018

13% ABV
100% Albarino

“A wine that will transport you to Spain on a summer’s day. Flavours of stone fruits, honey, mandarin and melon.”


Zip, zip, hooray >>

Pouilly-Fumé (Domaine Bruno Blondelet), Loire, France 2017

13% ABV
100% Sauvignon Blanc

“From one of our favourite wine regions, this classic in winemaking is wonderfully dry with flavours of gooseberry and green apple with a mineral and light creaminess.”


Fruity Fleurie >>

Fleurie (Le Reine de l’Arenite), Beaujolais, France 2018

13% ABV
100% Gamay

“This fantastic example of Fleurie, perfect for a BBQ, has flavours of berry fruits, morello cherries and dark chocolate. Black forest gateau in a glass – and when chilled, even more wonderful.”
