Our top 20 wines for summer
Not so long ago, the two of us were sitting around the tasting table having a chat about which red and white candidates we’d shortlist for our top 20 wines for this summer. Which from our range of great-value-for-money wines to go best in days of sunshine and on warm, breezy evenings?
But this was much more than a chat. For what turned out was a long and intense dégustation, in which several such options were tasted and compared with one another. And again. Long and intense, yes, but at once extremely pleasurable, given all the delicious FromVineyardsDirect cuvées we had to get through!
And through them we got, with this final selection showing much accord. Proven favourites we simply couldn’t resist; favourites we think will utterly delight you in the balmy days and nights ahead. All in all, a selection of outstanding wines for summertime, and one that tastefully expresses our inspiration for setting up FromVineyardsDirect almost fifteen years ago.

When you experience the cool, refreshing elegance of fine Provençal rosé on a blazing afternoon, you see why it remains the unrivalled seasonal choice for drinkers. Shimmering, luminous, pale salmon-pink in hue, so often with the delicate aromas and zippy flavours of red-berry fruit, wild strawberry and citrus zest, there is nothing so exquisite as a summer glass of chilled Côtes-de-Provence. Nothing so invigorating when the sun is high, the parasol is up, and lunch is al fresco.
Here, we’ve directly sourced and selected for you an enticing collection of rosé wines, mostly of Provence, so that you have easy, immediate access this exquisite, invigorating pleasure. Seven delicious, reasonably priced grenache and syrah-based cuvées, starting at just £10.95 a bottle, which for us represent some of the most vibrant, classic expressions of the region we’ve discovered thus far.
Explore our new range, savour old favourites, or discover something new. Then get filling that chiller. FromVineyardsDirect now makes enjoying a rosé-tinted summer as easy as unfolding your chaise-longue.
Happy drinking! - David Campbell and Esme Johnstone
