Barbecue
After lavishing his attention on icon wines high up in the Santa Cruz mountains, Jim Warner comes down to Paso Robles, Central Coast, California where the Foxglove range of wines comes from Jim’s twin brother, Bob, is the winemaker. Bob’s ethos is to let the fruit do the talking. Simplicity is the key and he claims if you start with perfect fruit, then the winemaking needs minimal intervention. The Foxglove range is getting a fine reputation for superb quality price ratio. Others in the range are Zinfandel and Chardonnay.

What to drink with... barbecue.

Always harder to prepare than they look, when done well barbecues are a real event. The more succulent the meat, the more tannic the wine. If you’re easily distracted and have to hide those burnt edges under the parsley, then go for a smooth wine. Barbecues tend to be social occasions and your guests are more likely to enjoy your company than analyse the wines. If this sounds familiar, pick a crowd pleaser like our Côtes du Rhône Régulus Rouge, the Antucura Intuition Malbec from Argentina or our Alpha Domus The Pilot Merlot Cabernet from NZ. If the sun is burning hot, why not pick a fruity, refreshing rosé? Hope the sun shines for you!
