The temperature according to the iPhone is 4c out there. Time to uncork a couple of those wonderful winter reds and light up the fire! We’ve a couple of favs when it comes to winter reds below are top 3.

1) Monte Zovo Ca’Linverno Rosso – Big brooding Ripasso style red from Verona with a dollop of Cabernet added to the blend that gives a nice raisiny spice edge that reminds you the days are closing it. Trust us once you go Ca’Linverno you won’t go back. We highly recommend this with a bit of dark choc. €20.95 reduced to €17.95 until Dec 31st. Save €3

2) Yalumba Scribbler Cabernet Shiraz – Winter warmers like BBQ wines are generally big robust and flavoursome, all three qualities of the excellent Scribbler. Silky smooth palate that is bursting with juicy red cherry and spicy fruits. Soft and elegant with a lovely long finish. €21.95 reduced to €18.95 until Dec 31st. Save €3

3) Blue Cutting Road Cabernet Merlot – It wouldn’t be winter/Christmas @Woodberrys without this old favourite!! This wine has got it all big warming flavours wrapped up in a palate that is as smooth as hammered silk! Blackberry, blackcurrant turkish delight notes to beat the band. Don’t believe us try it!!! €14.95 reduced to €12.50 until Dec 31st.
