Wine Time with Sainsbury’s

A glass of wine is a happiness and a good glass of wine is a joy!

I was so excited to be sent some fabulous wine from Sainsbury’s to try out. All award winning and all incredibly tasty.

Sew White Sainsbury's wine review 1

The red wine Chianti Riserva red wine was brilliant – gorgeous with pasta and roast dinners (I made it last for 2 meals!). Having the full bodied red wine with a roast beef dinner was beautiful. It has a strong fruity flavour of cherry, plumb and blackcurrants. It was nice to have a fruity red with a kick that went so well with meaty meals. This gorgeous red is only £7 a bottle and is well worth the price.

I had never tried a Vinho Verde white wine before and it was lovely!

It was a Decanter Silver winner, International Wine Challenge silver winner and International Wine and Spirit Competition silver winner. Three very good awards which really show how good of a wine it is! Plus at a bottle for £4.75 you can’t go wrong!
Very fruity, with a hint of summer sparkles and a light and green taste. The green taste was fresh and clean.

To accompany the Vinho Verde we had a huge Vietnamese Pho – noodle soup. The wine worked perfectly with the dinner and the green clean tastes of the wine complemented the green and fresh salad of the Pho.


The fresh onions, garlic, chilli, coriander, watercress and lime worked so well with the wine.

    I’m not normally a wine person but I think I’ve just been converted! Will be popping to Sainsbury on my way home to stock up and so some sampling of these myself!

      I haven’t been a huge wine drinker for long but now I’m trying better wines I’m finding out how nice they are.

    How lucky to be sent wine to try out, award winning ones too! Jealous. These sound great. You’re making me feel hungry – and thirsty (for liquids of a certain kind!). Tx

      Thank you 🙂 If you want a summer drink try the Vinho Verde. It’s like a summer holiday drink.
