Waitrose recently showcased a selection of its current range, in a socially distanced press tasting at its Cookery School in London.
With regular 25%-off deals on six bottles (click here to see the offer running currently), and other promotions across the range, it has proven itself to be a great place for savvy wine lovers to shop.
The supermarket won Champagne & Sparkling Specialist of the Year in the 2020 Decanter Retailer Awards, and its Waitrose & Partners No.1 range is also worth paying attention to – there are some great buys here, especially in the sweet and fortified categories. These wines are designed to show good typicity, and as such are a good introduction to styles you may not have tried before.
Below are a dozen highlights from the press tasting, followed by a selection of other Waitrose wines recommended by the Decanter tasting team during 2020. Perfect inspiration for wines to enjoy this autumn and to see you through those long winter evenings – some great ideas for Christmas drinking, too.
