I want to take a bottle of wine to a dinner party. What should I take?

We've all chosen something with a nice label or bought on price to impress our friends.

It’s difficult to know what to take so avoid the major brands and speak to your local wine merchant. Don’t buy something too expensive if your hosts will squirrel it away for drinking when no one else is around. And yes, it’s ok to take a wine that has a screwcap!

Perhaps find out what’s on the menu and bring something to match.
