If you are planning any festive parties this December, or are just looking for some new wines to try, I have a couple of recommendations from Vintage Roots, the UK’s leading organic wine merchant. Organic products are always a little more special than what you can pick up in the average supermarket, so they can make for lovely considered gifts. Vintage Roots have an amazing array of organic wine, beers, cider, spirits and alcohol free options too.
The first recommendation from Vintage Roots is the Giol Prosecco Spumante Extra Dry £12.99, which has won multiple gold medals, and is described by Vintage Roots as the following;
“This pale yellow delight is full of persistent bubbles with a pronounced nose of white-fleshed fruits and blossom overlaying a yeasty base. This Prosecco is delicate and dry in the mouth and finely structured to show off its biscuit and apple palate without any one flavour becoming too dominant.“
The Giol Prosecco Spumante is 11% vol, 75cl and originates from Veneto Italy. You can’t go wrong when it comes to prosecco, and it’s always something that’s worth keeping in the fridge for ‘just in case’ and I think £12.99 is really quite reasonable for an organic, high quality prosecco.
My next recommendation from Vintage Roots is the Mas des Tannes Rouge 2018 Coteaux de Bessilles. This is a no-added sulphur red wine, and it won a gold medal at the International Organic Wine Awards 2018. It is described by Vintage Roots are the following;
“This 30 ha vineyard (74 acres) in Montagnac prides itself on its privileged setting. It is protected by pine trees and the garrigue and nourished by the mild climate of Mediterranean Sea, which is nearby, and the healthy northern wind.
A new No added sulphur red from the quality-focused estate of Paul Mas which for the first time has been made in the “natural” style. Full bodied and chunky with rich brambley fruit and intense spice fruit flavours. A blend of Grenache, Merlot and Syrah.”
The Mas des Tannes Rouge 2018 Coteaux de Bessilles is £11.50, 13.5% vol and contains 75cl. It originates from Languedoc-Roussillon, France and is said to feature flavours of blackberries, currant, cherry and some spice notes making it a great companion for grilled meat, pasta dishes and chocolate desserts too.
If these two picks aren’t for you, head on over to the Vintage Roots website as you’ll be spoiled for choice. Wine is obviously enjoyable to drink, but it’s such a great gift idea too, so you’re bound to find something you love on their website right here.
