Top 20 Wines for Summer

The two of us sat around the tasting table a month or so ago and talked about finding our top 20 red and white wines for summer. It was long and intense but very pleasurable, luckily lubricated with tasting many of our wines against each other. We found there was much agreement in the final selection, with all the wines excellent and great value-for-money - they are exactly why we set up FromVineyardsDirect 14 years ago.

There’s a mix of proven favourites like the Mâcon-Peronne white burgundy and Château Les Moines from the stellar 2010 vintage that we are really pleased to still be able to offer (these wines are no longer available from most merchants, except at very high prices). And there’s a small number of new wines for 2022 which we can really stand behind.
