It's one of life's greatest little pleasures – sitting down after a hard day's work with a delicious glass of vino. But with more and more bottles in the supermarket aisle, how on earth can you be assured you're choosing the perfect drop? Master of Wine Paul Tudor was tasked with finding the best bottles possible – whatever varietal, whatever price point – and boy, has he delivered! While we've got the usual suspects covered, we've also featured a few up-and-coming varietals that offer a little something different. So if you're looking to expand your wine horizons, check out a cheeky Riesling or Gewürztraminer, or if you're a fan of red, a rather exotic-sounding Spanish Carménère. Enjoy discovering your new favourite drop, or simply relish an old favourite!
