Well we can hope it has we’ve had nearly a week of lovely weather here in the normally wet and rainy west. And according to WeatherForecast.com its set to at least the long weekend! (even if we have the odd shower and it gets a bit cooler) with that in mind we put together a short list of our favourite barbecue wines. Each of these lovelies will be tag in store of just give one of us a shout. The reds are big and fruity wines capable of dealing with those smoky and chargrilled flavours and the odd burnt bit. The whites are refreshingly thirst quenching with lovely fresh citrus flavours just what you need sitting out the back garden enjoying the sunshine. And don’t forget the sunscreen nobody likes to see a LOBSTER this time of year đŸ˜‰
