Kate's drink choices

Kate's drink choices
To start, any of these sparkling white wines will complement Mary Berry's canapés:

  • Allini Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco (£7.29, Lidl)
  • Jansz Tasmania Premium Non Vintage Cuvee (£15.25, Oddbins)
Or for something French try:
  • Billecart-Salmon Brut Reserve Champagne (£39.95, Berry Bros. & Rudd)
For Michel's roast goose with rice stuffing I think a German riesling is a good accompaniment. Here's an example:

  • Donnhoff Riesling Kabinett 2011 (£14.99, Majestic)
And for Glynn's herbed pork en croûte, these three French reds from in and around the Rhône region are a good match:

  • La Vielle Ferme, Cotes de ventoux (£7.99, Majestic)
  • Chateau Grange Cochard, Morgon (£13.99, The Sampler)
  • Cave de Tain Crozes Hermitage (£9.50, Sainsburys)
