Sunday lunch

Ridgeview Grosvenor Blanc de Blanc 2007

As it's English Wine Week, we have to start with this stunning celebration wine, made in traditional méthode champenoise style using Chardonnay grapes grown on the Sussex Downs and full of lovely toasty brioche and tropical-fruit flavours. Beating the champagne houses at their own game, last autumn it won the Decanter magazine award for the best sparkling wine in the world and is only one of a number of fabulous Ridgeview sparklers. £23.95, Berry Bros & Rudd; £24.40, slurp.co.uk;or visit ridgeview.co.uk for a full list of stockists of Ridgeview wines

Midweek meal

Champteloup Muscadet Sèvre et Maine 2009

Distinguished by lovely lemony flavours, but with a distinct and not unpleasant tang of salty sea breezes, this splendidly crisp and refreshing Muscadet is a perfect match for almost any type of white fish – so long as the sauce is not too spicy – but really comes into its own with prawns or mussels. And it'd be perfect with some goat's cheese afterward. £5.99, Waitrose

Bargain basement

Villa Pani Chianti Riserva 2007

If you're planning a barbecue or similar gathering this weekend, this is a great offer from your local Co-op, an excellent half-price deal which ends on Tuesday. A well-structured, medium-bodied Chianti, which has spent long enough in the bottle to develop some depth of flavour, with tastes of ripe red fruits and some nice leather and tobacco notes, which would go perfectly with grilled chicken or lamb. £4.99 (until 31 May; normally £9.99), Co-operative stores
