Go in style with an aperitif

Before going off for a big Sunday lunch, we like to have a few friends or family round for a glass of bubbly. It's the perfect aperitif and start to a Sunday lunch that makes it all feel like much more of an occasion. There's a huge buzz for Prosecco and also home-grown English wines so we've gone down the middle and recommend Bolney Estate Bubbly NV, an off-dry sparkling wine from Sussex that will please Prosecco and Champagne fans alike!

Wine pairings for a home-cooked Sunday lunch

Of course if you're planning Sunday lunch at home the most important thing after the food is getting the wine right. In partnership with Novel Wines, we've selected a range of wine pairings for every style of Sunday lunch! 

Roast chicken is one of the most popular options and it's often hard to decide between a red or a white wine. Fab middle ground is to go with a lightly oaked, zingy white like the Painted Wolf Paarl Roussanne from South Africa. This is a multi-award winning wine bursting with peaches, lime and cream. If you prefer turkey to chicken, which can be slightly meatier, then go for a bigger Chardonnay or try a Hungarian white wine like the excellent Kardos Furmint, full of ripe red apples and butter notes.

Going for classic roast beef? For us it's got to be a red wine and something that's rich and juicy but not overly so. Nero d'Avola, an Italian variety from Sicily, is our best bet. Packed with blackberry and plum fruits, the silkiest tannin in the Mediterranean and a juicy finish to cut through your beef and yorkshires make it a top match. Try the organic Colomba Bianca 'Kore' Nero d'Avola for a great example.

Lamb can be a great wine partner because of its fats and full flavour. A medium bodied red like the plummy Kayra Kalecik Karasi from Turkey is bound to impress, or you could go for a curveball and try a spicy Gewurztraminer like this Ilocki Podrumi Traminac Premium from Croatia.

If you're not a meat person, then those trading Sunday lunch for a fish dish can't go wrong by pairing fish with one of our favourite white wines: Kyperounda Petritis. Originating from Europe's highest altitude vineyards in the Cyprus' Troodos Mountains, this white is choc-a-bloc with ripe gooseberry and lime fruits, perfect with white fish or oily fish dishes. Vegetarian nut roast instead? Go for the nutty, creamy Chateau Ksara Blanc de Blancs from Lebanon - there's nothing like it.
