With its understated appeal and innate coolness, white wine is the most refreshing of wines. So try a new wine - a magnificent Meursault, a smooth Sauvignon Blanc, a crisp Chablis or a classy Chardonnay.
White wine has the advantage of appealing to a wide range of palates but still remaining distinctive to satisfy seasoned wine fans. This versatility has made it the UK's favourite wine, with around 60 million cases consumed every year.
British wine drinkers have begun exploring the allure of the world's many white wines - from Pinot Grigio and Chablis to Chardonnay and the crispness of a fine Sauvignon Blanc. White wine is far more diverse than many consumers may think.

Fine wine has never been easier to discover.
The many varieties of fine wine means that there will be a bottle suited to any palate. For those with a sweet tooth, there are some devilish dessert wines such as Marsala or Tokay. And there are more conventional varieties like crisp Chablis, Chardonnay Sauvignon Blanc and French Burgandy.

These wines provide just that sense of reliability. There will be no corked bottles here, and no acidic aftertaste. These are fine, beautifully crafted wines with a richness and elegance that will grace any occasion. So, when catering for friends, ensure that they are well looked after with a reliable bottle of Sauvignon Blanc, Chablis, Chardonnay or French Burgandy.
