Delivering complexity, body and length for a very reasonable £8.99 from Waitrose, this is a impressive, affordable red wine- and it paired beautifully with pumpkin pesto ravioli.
The ideal wine to pair with risotto? White Burgundy! Here's what I thought of Sainsburys' La Terrasse Chablis alongside homemade risotto.
Fancy something big, bold, and red? This red blend from New Zealand is sustainably-made, vegan-friendly, and a great choice for red wine fans who enjoy the flavours of Cab Sav and the silkiness of Merlot.
Full-bodied and floral, this Marsanne from Aldi's Exquisite Collection is a really nice find for £5.99 Read on for tasting notes and food pairings for Marsanne wines.
Fancy a bold Italian red? Organic and vegan-friendly, this Primitivo from Tesco fits the bill for less than £10. Paired best with Italian dishes and substantial vegetables; read on for my top choices.
Something tells me Pasini Organic Brut Prosecco is suitable for vegans....! Both nose and palate are explosions of acacia, honeysuckle, and sweet apple. Light, cheerful, and organic, this made for very easy drinking, especially when matched with cream avocado pasta.
Move over oysters - pairing champagne with vegetables is so much more interesting. Homemade butternut squash and sage ravioli matched with Charles Heidsieck so beautifully, there should have been a second bottle opened to celebrate!
