For anyone who hasn’t undertaken a wine tasting course (so that’s most of us, right?), the wine aisle can often feel like a bit of a minefield. With so many choices – colour, grape variety, country etc etc – and price points, picking the perfect bottle to kick back with on a Friday night can turn a fun activity into a bit of a daunting one.

For those who aren’t sure of their Chardonnay from their Chenin or their Merlot from their Malbec, M&S’s new ‘This is…’ range of wines will suit you perfectly. Taking all the complicated investigative guesswork out of picking out a wine, each bottle in the range clearly and simply states what you can expect of the wine inside. For example, the Shiraz is labelled ‘This is… Rich & Spicy’ while the Chardonnay label tells you that ‘This is… Soft & Tropical’. Genius!

Designed to provide customers with guidance on taste, styles and grape varieties, the 15 bottle collection can help anyone embark on their own wine journey. There are reds, whites and rosés all priced at a very reasonable £5, while the two sparkling options (a white and rosé) are a comfortable £6.
