Our Top Gift Picks for £30 or under
A good idea is to keep it classic with tried and tested wines that offer sophistication and class whenever they're poured. Sauvignon Blanc from Sancerre in France's Loire Valley absolutely ticks these boxes. It'll be an ideal match if you're serving up oysters, but is also perfect with creamy goat's cheese
Kate says: "A good Sancerre is still a real treat and this is an example that really hits the spot. There's no finer example of bone-dry Sauvignon Blanc and Daniel Crochet has captured the pure, crisp fruit and limestone minerality beautifully."
Put the fizz into their day with this superb Crémant de Loire sparkling wine in a smart gift box. This is great alternative to Champagne, made with care by an excellent independent producer. This Crémant was a big hit last Christmas and more and more drinkers are discovering it's charms.Kate Says: "Crémant is the name given to traditional method sparkling wine made outside of the Champagne region in France. This means you often get much better value for money as shown by this elegant example from the Loire. It's just great, really fresh at first then moreish."
For those times when you need to say thank you with something special. We've chosen two of our favourite Rosé wines. Presented in a smart gift box. We picked the Estandon Le Rollier, a beautiful Provence-style pale rosé made on the Mediterranean coast and Herdade de Sao Miguel Rosé a lovely Portuguese rosé rosé full of berry fruit and a little bit of tropical character.
Sparkling wines to enjoy with Mum
You can't go wrong with some bubbles. Opening a bottle of sparkling wine creates a moment of celebration. It's easy to enjoy and is very food friendly. Here are some of our top picks.
This is from an independent winemaker and is brilliant value compared to the well-known brands. We love working with smaller Champagne producers. You get so much more for your money and this is a superb example. The apple and apricot fruit is bright and fresh. It’s complex and round. Gorgeous stuff.
Try this with smoked salmon blini's
English sparkling wine is trending up and there's a wider range of styles being produced than ever. This is a new favourite of ours that is fun and modern, just like lots of mums out there.
Flint were the first English producer to begin to make wine using the Charmat method, which is now becoming widely recognised as a style that is very much suited to England's climate.
A sprightly English sparkling rose bursting with strawberries and cream. But it’s not just all fruit: there is a slight praline nuttiness in the background, which gives the wine some complexity.
On the palate it is crisp and crunchy and still full of red fruits. It is both easy drinking yet structured and serious enough to make a fine apéritif. Sassy, summery and fun.
Rosé wines your Mum will love
We see rosé's popularity at Mother's day as sign of the continued upward trend of this style. It is stylish and sophisticated and makes for an easy wine to enjoy together or to give as a gift.
Our best selling rose from the south of France, amazing value for money if you're looking for a crisp dry Provence style. Delicate red fruits with floral notes presented in a beautiful bottle.
Kate Says: "If you love Provence-style rose, you'll love this! It has the same light, soft red berry fruit and refreshing acidity. Plus it looks amazing. Ideal as a gift or pair it with smoked salmon."
Chateau de L’Escarelle are one of the most prestigious wine estates in the heart of Provence, with 100 hectares of organically certified vineyards set in 1,000 hectares of beautiful woodland. Subtle and elegant with wild strawberry and citrus fruit on the nose. The palate is clean and fresh with beautiful smoothness and pink grapefruit and cranberry notes. If you're looking for the Whispering wine that has become so popular, this is your in-the-know choice to go one better. (It is even called The Two Angels and who knows what they might be saying to each other. Lean in to this to find out.)
Wines to enjoy with your Sunday lunch
If you're getting together with family and having a sunday lunch together, why not take a bottle that'll pair nicely with the food. Here are a couple of easy winners you can lean on to make it special.
A lovely silky and elegant Pinot Noir from Monterey Counties, Arroyo Seco AVA. 12 months of ageing in 100% French oak adds complexity and rounds out the tannins, delicate cherries, rasberries and currants combine with hints of mocha and vanilla from the oak. Medium bodied with soft, velvety tannins and a long elegant finish.
A fantastic Pinot that really shows the quality of Monterey and pairs well with salmon or roast pork.
This is a class act and I like the name as a nod to the role of Mother's in our lives, mentoring us through life. KWV is one of South Africa's leading wine producers, renowned throughout the world for their premium quality. This is alive with aromas of ripe mango, concentrated apricot, honeysuckle and jasmine. The creamy and textured palate shows hints of dried peach and zesty lime, with good length, rich flavours and freshness.
This would work with a roast chicken dinner or a fish pie.
Gifts for the those who prefer spirits
Whether you like whisky or rum, gin or vodka - we have a wide range of spirits to choose from too. Included in our Mother's Day gift collection are some spirits gifts that make it even easier to buy for the spirits drinker in your life.
Forest Gin is distilled by the Bond family in batches of a maximum of 85 bottles at a time. Each bottle contains sourced, organic juniper berries, organic coriander seeds, superior quality vanilla pods, liquorice root and Angelica. In addition there are foraged wild bilberries, raspberries & blackberries with peak district moss, ferns and A sprinkling of wild flowers, bark & pine. Finally it is blended to 42% abv with the softest forest spring water collected from a spring 1,200 ft above sea level. An ancient spring in the Peak District.
The Lakes Gin is a classic English gin with vibrant notes of juniper, cracked black pepper and orange peel.
The distillery elevates flavour by using only a select few botanicals. These are gently infused in the finest British wheat spirit and distilled in a traditional copper pot still with the purest water, drawn from their Lake District National Park home in a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
This Isle of Raasay Gin Gift Pack includes a bottle of their zesty Isle of Raasay Gin and two branded gin glasses packaged in a branded gift box – a gift to be shared and enjoyed together.
The gin is handcrafted using ten carefully chosen botanicals including juniper, sweet orange peel and lemon peel.
Fresh and aromatic, with juniper, sweet orange, candied lemon and hints of rhubarb. The palate is dry with bursts of juniper, richer rhubarb and citrus notes before all the flavours harmonise together for a refreshing finish with a lasting aftertaste that encapsulates Raasay’s style and character.
An ideal gift for the those don't indulge in alcohol but still want a high quality drink, presented in a smart gift box. These are our most popular alcohol free wines - an aromatic and fruity white from Australia, and a crisp Cava.
If you prefer a gin and tonic and are looking to an alcohol free alternative, this is one of our favourites. A bright, coastal inspired non-alcoholic spirit made using botanicals such as sea rosemary, sea buckthorn, wild seaweed and pink grapefruit. A fantastic alternative to a G&T when mixed with tonic.
If in doubt, choose glassware
If you really can't decide on what wines choose, why not turn to a stylish glassware instead? That way they'll be smiling whatever they're drinking out of them. We have a high-quality range that can complement different styles or be used as versatile everyday glasses.
We've said it before and we'll say it again. Glassware does make a difference. Find the right glass and it really does elevate the experience. This Vervino Champagne glass by Schott Zwiesel feels very elegant in the hand and allows the fine aromas and flavours come into their own as it is shaped like an elongated goblet narrowing slightly towards the top.
This is called a Riesling glass since the glass makers are German and naturally suggest the wine grown on their doorstop, but this is also a wonderful size and shape for Sauvignon Blanc and Albarino wines. The glass is thin and slightly fluted to maximise the delicate flow of aromas from aromatic grapes.
