All of our wine suggestions are on offer until the 23rd of March. Go to full list here

Let’s start up with fizz to kick off the day in style! Whether it is with a delicious breakfast or as an aperitif for lunch.

Champagne Canard-Duchêne Léonie Rosé

Champagne is definitely the drink to make mum feel special!

Léonie rosé is delicately spiced and bursting with red berries. Enjoy a cosy brunch of smoked salmon with a glass of this pink champagne.

Azienda Agricola Catullio, Prosecco DOC Extra Dry

If your mum is more of a fan of Prosecco, we have got you covered with our Prosecco from Catullio.

A fizz of high quality with gorgeous stone fruit and citrus aromas. Some great bubbles with excellent value for money and always a winner with our team.

We highly recommend to include rosé to your list, as let’s face it, you can never have enough of pink wine, especially for Mother’s Day!

Château Val Joanis Cuvée Joséphine Rosé, Lubéron (magnum)

Joséphine is a beautiful pale Provence rosé made with a selection of the best juices. It has lovely citrus and stone fruit aromas. Joséphine is a delicate and elegant rosé in a stunningly crafted bottle with a glass cork. Impressive on the table or a fantastic gift to offer!

In a magnum for more oomph

Bruno Andreu Aromatic Grenache rosé Languedoc 

 This rose is from sunny Languedoc. Aromatic means the friendliness of the South of France, the authenticity of unique grape varieties, and the land’s richness.

It has lovely fresh strawberry fruits with good freshness and goes on forever!

Champagne Thiénot Blanc de Blancs NV Gift Box

An elegant and delicious 100% Chardonnay Blanc de Blancs, this champagne is made by Thiénot, a young family Champagne House. Small production of high quality, this champagne is all about freshness, fruit and finesse.

Comes in a pretty gift box that your mum is bound to love…and the champagne as well, of course!

Now on to whites for your Mother’s day lunch, and we have 3 very different wines…

Domaine du Chardonnay Chablis

A classic Burgundy, who doesn’t love Chablis? A great partner to fish, a prawn starter or a vegetable terrine.

A very typical Chablis, with refreshing acidity and lovely notes of citrus, almonds and white flowers.

N° 1 De Dourthe Bordeaux Sauvignon Blanc

Moving from Chardonnay to Sauvignon Blanc, with N° 1 De Dourthe Bordeaux Blanc.

It has the vitality and vibrancy of NZ Sauvignon but with the finesse and elegance of Bordeaux. It’s a combination of those 2, fresh and aromatic and really delicious!

It is also a great match to seafood and fish and will go really well with a goat’s cheese salad.

Weingut Gottfried Mittelbach Riesling Prestige Qualitätswein

Now for something a bit different, this gorgeous dry Riesling from Austria. It has a lovely crisp mineral bite and peachy fruit. It is very long and delicious. Riesling pairs well with many foods, but the best has to be with spicy food.

Mittelbach, Austria

So now we have your whites sorted, we are on to our red wine recommendations.

Domaine Jean-Marc Lafont Fleurie Les Granits rose

We have chosen a Beaujolais Cru for our first red. A lighter red, floral and fruity. A super elegant wine with lots of freshness. It goes with quite a few types of food, we’d serve it with roast chicken or roast salmon, or if you are serving a vegetarian option, this Fleurie works really well.

Château Grand Barrail Lamarzelle Figeac 2015, Saint-Émilion Grand Cru

No table would be complete without a red wine from Bordeaux, and this wine comes from the charming village of St Emilion. This region has been recognised for the high quality of its highly delicate and elegant wines.

Château Grand Barrail Lamarzelle Figeac is a jewel in the Saint-Emilion crown. Super silky tannins, fruit and intensity in perfect balance, this is superb. Excellent with red meat and your cheese platter.

Château Roumieu, Sauternes

To end on a sweet note, you can’t beat the king of dessert wines: Sauternes. Château Roumieu is very aromatic, with hints of lime, dried fruits and honey. Not sickly sweet but has a pleasant acidity. Although it is a dessert wine that pairs really well with dark chocolate, it’s a great partner to blue cheeses.

All of our wine suggestions are on offer until the 23rd of March.

All of these excellent wines need to be drunk in a beautiful glass, or served in a delicate decanter. Check out our range of Sydonios glasses and decanters here.

A nice but small, carefully selected list of wines that we’d be drinking on Mother’s Day. Cheers!
