Need help choosing the perfect wine to sip this summer? Discover wine aficionado and TV star Fred Siriex’s top picks, tips and food pairing suggestions
Having worked at some of London’s most celebrated restaurants and with a passion for all things food and wine, TV’s Fred Sirieix is the perfect person to help you discover our wine range. Every month, our wine ambassador Fred will choose his wines of the month, share tasting notes and more.
“I am delighted to be tasting, sampling and telling you what I think of the M&S wine range, and I hope you can share with me which your favourites are – à votre santé!” says Fred.
“This wine is made from a red grape from Sicily that is virtually unknown – Nerello Cappucio,” says Fred, who has chosen our new Found Nerello Cappuccio as one of his May wines of the month. Cappuccio, meaning hood, describes the vine leaves that protect the grapes from the hot Sicilian sun. The end result? A versatile fruity red wine without harsh tannins. Serve it lightly chilled with your favourite pasta dish or a traditional Sicilian aubergine caponata.
Pick up the Found Nerello Cappuccio in store or order a case online.
This month, Fred could not resist this “incredibly zesty and fresh” Found Gros Manseg. “This will create a beautiful harmony with spiced Asian food,” says Fred, thanks to its ripe flavours of white peach and exotic fruits.
