Jeneve’s knowledge of wine spans the globe, and she has pitched her personal favourite – the Sicilian grillo – from Italy. A bright and juicy grape variety that produces fresh, lemon-scented wines ‘perfect for al fresco dining’ she says. This wine has wonderful depth of flavour. Serve it well chilled and match it with bold ingredients and dishes such as bacon, smoked duck or with barbecued pork or prawns. Try other Italian varieties like classic chianti and fresh verdicchio, or why not go further afield with our selection of Brazilian wines?

Sue’s personal favourite, the Fleurie, hails from the Bourgogne region of France. She recommends serving lightly chilled and says ‘this great light-bodied red is ideal for picnics in summer’. The wine is a great match for crudités and charcuterie, as well as soft cheeses. Try our extensive French range, which covers regions from Champagne to Bordeaux, or enjoy discovering British wines for a homegrown tipple.

Belinda’s favourite is a chardonnay from her home country. ‘Rich and buttery’, Margaret River is specially blended for M&S in Western Australia. Its full flavour suits something robust and flavourful like a Thai green curry or roast chicken, while fresh peach and lemon notes lend it to fish dishes. Try some of the other award-winning wines to come out of the Antipodes too, or give Germany’s light and refreshing wines a go.
