To drink:

Ayala Brut Non-Vintage Champagne

A delicate and lively champagne, the Ayala Brut Non-Vintage is abundant in round, fruity flavours. Usually served with an aperitif, this champagne makes a perfect accompaniment to the charcuterie selection served with pickles and homemade toasted bread.

Marsanne –Viognier – Domaine de Cessane – Pays D’Oc

This typical southern French blend is made from grapes grown within sight of the Mediterranean. This full-flavoured wine is fragrant and aromatic, made with ripe pears a little citrus and touch of honey. It works beautifully served with homemade granola, drizzled with Provençal honey and milk.

Chateau Fontareche – Vielles Vignes – 2012 Corbieres

Fresh yet weighty, this beautiful red has black fruit character with hints of white peach and complex spices.  The soft finish is long, complex and satisfying and works wonderfully with 28 day aged rib eye steak, served with hand cut chips, salad, and a sauce of your choice.
