The Wine Tour with Master of Wine Richard Bampfield MW
Alongside our usual wine range we also offer a carefully curated, seasonal selection that changes six times throughout the year. This selection, known as the Lidl Wine Tour, is a chance to try new or unusual varieties and every bottle is tasted and graded by Richard Bampfield to help you make the right choice.
The Christmas season offers a variety of different occasions at which wine is likely to be popular. Lighter dry whites are wonderfully versatile so those from Italy, Germany and the French region of Alsace in this selection will work well, both with and without food. Turkey itself is well suited to lighter reds and the Fleurie or Spätburgunder would be ideal, although the Cirò may well be the preferred option for those who like their reds warming and fuller bodied. Talking of which, one of the richest red wines of all, Amarone della Valpolicella, is an excellent match for cheese and nuts. Bissinger Champagne Premium Cuvée will add welcome sparkle to proceedings, while lovers of sweet wine are spoilt for choice.
