Spring is just around the corner, the mornings are getting brighter as are the evenings. It’s time to start planning those long awaited picnics in the park with your friends, or, if you like to entertain at home – a good old barbecue in the garden! There are a handful of items to add to your shopping list to ensure you successfully host a gathering your guests will talk about until next year!

Picpoul de Pinet Tesco Wine White

Tesco Finest – Picpoul de Pinet White Wine

For me, no picnic is complete without a glass of ice-cold wine. This Picpoul from Tesco is a favourite of mine. A brilliantly refreshing, tangy hit of apple, pear and lemon zing, with a light, dry finish. Don’t forget to pack an ice pack and cooler to keep the bottle cool!
