Best wine buys at Waitrose this summer

Decanter's tastings team picks out some of the best wine buys at Waitrose, as the supermarket launches a week-long 25% off promotion.

With one of its regular 25%-off deals kicking off , it’s the perfect time to stock up on wines from the excellent Waitrose range. From today (8 June) until next Tuesday 14 June, Waitrose will be offering 25% off all wine and Champagne priced £5 and over, when purchasing any six or more.  The offer is available when shopping in branch, on Waitrosecellar.com, or online* at Waitrose.com with a grocery delivery (the usual £40 online grocery minimum spend applies).

The retailer won Supermarket of the Year in the 2021 Decanter Retailer Awards, as well as Runner-up in the Champagne & Sparkling Wine and England & Wales categories. Its Waitrose & Partners No.1 range is 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 of classic styles. And for the more adventurous drinker, the brilliant Loved & Found range features 10 wines all priced under £10 that showcase lesser-known grape varieties and styles.

The Loved & Found line-up changes regularly, so customers can continue their journey of discovery once they’ve tried them all. New wines in the current Loved & Found range include Treixadura (a white from northern Spain), Caladoc (a southern French crossing of Malbec with Grenache), and the summery Sicilian red, Frappato. You’ll find tasting notes for all these in the recommendations below.

The best Waitrose wines:

The first 26 wines listed here were tasted at Waitrose’s Spring 2022 press tasting, held in May 2022. The remaining wines were tasted at previous press tastings and are still available.
