Here at the magazine we are always on the look out for the best wines from some of the world’s most outstanding vineyards and wine producers. One such name is Barefoot Wine & Bubbly who started up in California in the Sixties. Its founders believed that wine should be more fun and less serious; and created a wine that could be enjoyed by everyone from first-time wine drinkers to hardcore aficionados.
Barefoot Wine is the most awarded and #1 wine brand in the US and was introduced to the UK in 2009, soon becoming one of our country’s top revenue wine labels. Staying true to its grassroot beginnings, Barefoot Wine & Bubbly gives back to local non-profit groups through charitable wine donations. In addition to several years of cleaning British beaches with Surfers Against Sewage, Barefoot Wine & Bubbly has also supported the LGBT community for over 25 years.
For those of you looking for something fun, flavourful and affordable this season, here are our favourite new wines from the Calfornia-based brand to enjoy this summer – whether you like red, white, or sparkling rosé wine, there is something for everyone in our select choices below.
Featuring flavours of honeyed peach and Fuji apple alongside aromas of sweet vanilla, this just launched Barefoot Chardonnay promises a sumptuous taste. Perfectly paired with fresh fruits and the summer breeze, Barefoot Chardonnay is the ideal companion to pasta and tantalisingly fresh seafood dishes. Enjoy by the beach or at a barbeque, serve with plenty of friends and good times!
Awarded a Gold Medal at the Critics Challenge International Wine and Spirits Competition in 2015, why not welcome the warmer days with a glass of Barefoot Chardonnay and toast to sipping on an award winning wine. Dripping in bursts of flavour and at an affordable price tag, Barefoot keeps wine more fun than ever before! Barefoot Chardonnay is available nationwide and costs just £6.99.
Barefoot Wine – Malbec
As Malbec continues to soar in popularity with sales up by nearly 50% last year, Barefoot Wine has tapped into this trend with the launch of its delicious new Malbec – a luscious red wine that tantalizes the tastebuds. Big juicy flavours of blackberry and currant set sail on a gorgeous gust of vanilla, caramel and toasted oak, so it’s no surprise that Barefoot Malbec is the latest award winner to the fun-loving brand’s already acclaimed range.
The varietal received a Double Gold Medal and Best of Class at the Los Angeles International Wine Competition in 2015. Barefoot Malbec goes great with barbequed steak, pulled pork or caramelized-onion pizza, making it a fantastic wine to enjoy during the warm summer months. Whether you’re having a BBQ with friends, hosting a relaxed dinner party, or simply enjoying the warm evening sun on the terrace, this Malbec is the perfect choice for those young-at-heart, looking for a flavourful wine without the full-on price tag. Barefoot Malbec is available nationwide and costs a very reasonable £6.99.
