SHOP BRUNCH WINES

  1. DEMI-SEC CAP CLASSIQUE WITH BREAKFAST PIE

    Classic bacon and eggs – including in a bacon-and-egg breakfast pie – taste even better with a glass of slightly sweet sparkling wine. The hint of sweetness in your glass is the perfect contrast for the rich, salty pie filling. 
  2. SAUVIGNON BLANC WITH SMASHED AVO AND EGG

    The flavours of Sauvignon Blanc are the perfect match for grassy, nutty avocado. The fresh acidity of the wine will cut through the richness of the poached egg, just like a squeeze of lemon.
  3. CHENIN BLANC AND FRENCH TOAST WITH BACON

    Choose a dry, fruity Chenin Blanc for a match made in heaven. The wine will enhance the salty smokiness of the bacon and tone down the sweetness of the syrup. You could also open a bottle of dry Riesling.
  4. BRUT ROSÉ CAP CLASSIQUE WITH EGGS ROYALE

    The flavour of smoked trout, the richness of the egg, and the creaminess of the Hollandaise sauce meet their perfect match in a glass of pink fizz
  5. GRENACHE WITH HUEVOS RANCHEROS

    This juicy, smooth, low-tannin red wine will balance the richness of the dish. Also try a Cabernet Franc if you like. Remember to chill the wine slightly before pouring.
  6. PROSECCO WITH BERRY PANCAKES

    A delicate, slightly fruity sparkling wine goes down a treat with a stack of pancakes topped with fruit compote and crème fraîche.
