Every Wednesday, since the beginning of the first extraordinary ‘lockdown’ period in April 2019, I select a few great wines that I think offer particular value for money and also a huge amount of joy on both the nose and palate for you to savour. These wines are designed to lift your mood during these uncertain times. This initiative allows me to run wild outside of the formats of my weekly national columns. All of the merchants featured in Wednesday Wines are able to deliver to your doorstep, so you should be able to order easily and receive the wines without too much delay. As we go in and out of lockdown and restrictions are relaxed and then, again, tightened I have decided to continue with this piece because the feedback from my readers, the wineries concerned and the merchants listed has been overwhelming.
