Following the very successful wine tasting hosted by Lidl's master of Wine - Richard Bampfield, we get his personal updates on what is good at Lidl! The latest is:


You will have noticed how empty the Lidl wine shelves have looked over the last couple of weeks……….

But fear not!  The next Lidl Wine Tour starts on Thursday January 25th, so the crates will once more be full of the latest batch of bargains.

Here are my favourites from the new selection:

Dry Whites

Vernaccia di San Gimignano - £7.49 - Classic Italian dry white, perfect balance and harmony

Fiano Beneventano - £5.99 - Not quite as fine as above, but still lovely dry white at the price

Then 3 Austrian dry whites that are exemplary, fresh and mouthwatering - do try them, they are from excellent producers and normally more expensive than this

Gruner Veltliner Terraces -£8.99

Gruner Veltliner Granit - £7.99

Riesling Neubern Pfaffl - £8.99

Less dry white!

Gewurztraminer Riesling Pilliterri Estate, Canada - £9.99 - Lovely blend of grapes that produces a strikingly fruity white, perfect for serving with lightly spiced dishes such as Thai Green Curry. 


Vespral Reserva, Terra Alta, Spain - £5.49 - Good flavour and balance from a Spanish wine region that deserves to be much better known

Douro Tinto Azinhaga de Ouro, Portugal - £4.99 - Portuguese reds are simply wonderful value…..

Cimarosa Winemaker’s Selection, Chile - £7.99 - Bold, gutsy Chilean red

Happy drinking!
