A glass of something pink and sparkling is the perfect celebratory drink for summer…

From France

Champagne Pierre Vaudon Brut Rosé NV

One of the great champagne bargains from a little-known name respected by insiders and made from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes. Delicate, balanced, refreshing, packed with summery fruit flavours. Ideal with canapés or fine shellfish. £29.95, hhandc.co.uk

From England

Furleigh Estate Rosé

An award-winning sparkler from deepest Dorset, made using the méthode champenoise and French equipment in a new partly EU-funded venture. The result: elegant, gently sparkling, the English countryside in a glass. £26.99, palmerswinestore.com; £28.50, winepantry.co.uk

From Chile

Torres Santa Digna Estelado Rosé

If you find most cava or prosecco a bit too sweet, this is a lovely fun alternative from Chile. Made with the méthode champenoise again, from Chile's oldest grape variety, Pais, this is bone-dry, spiked with red-fruit flavours with a touch of citrus. A great buy for parties. £8.99, henningswine.co.uk; £11.03, thedrinkshop.com (minimum purchase six bottles)
