Every millennial loves a good brunch and it gets even better when you've got the right wine to go along with it. Brunch usually involves delicious poached eggs or creamy avocado but can go as versatile as a sausage sarnie or cheese and chilli jam French toast. So in the spirit of versatility, here's four wines that go with everything brunch related:
The truly wonderful Biblia Chora Ovilos Barrel-Fermented Assyrtiko/Semillon from Kavala, Greece, is the top premium option for your brunch adventure. It's also a gorgeous bottle and golden 'o' logo, so will make a great impression on those Insta shoots. Rich and bursting with grapefruit, it'll bring out the truffle on your eggs or the creamy butter in your French toast.
The equally pricey but nonetheless memorable is the Painted Wolf Pictus V from South Africa, which is inspired by the best white wines of the Rhone Valley. It's buttery and mouth-watering with a beautifully-designed watercolour of the African wild dog on the front. Painted Wolf works to support the conservation of these endangered dogs, so it's also a wine with a great cause!
If you fancy something a little less expensive then the versatile Thiasos Red PGI , also from Greece, is medium bodied and bursting with redcurrants. Light enough to go with your Eggs Florentine with enough ripe and fruity flavour to complement a chilli jam.
The classic pairing with any brunch, however, is a sparkling wine. Prosecco can be a little sweet, so for us the Bolney Estate Classic Cuvee from Sussex is the number one choice. Toasty, fruity and sublime with scrambled eggs on toast.
