Halliday - - Inside -

Take in­spi­ra­tion this sea­son from our ive drinks wish­lists, each care­fully con­sid­ered within a spe­cific bud­get.

We chal­lenged five wine peo­ple to cre­ate a drinks wish­list for the fes­tive sea­son, each within a spe­cific bud­get. The re­sult is five in­spired shop­ping lists for you to pil­lage so you can cel­e­brate the new year with money to spare, while look­ing like a wine guru.

From Cham­pagne to Tas­ma­nian sparkling, gre­nache, skin-con­tact chardon­nay and even Cam­pari, the bot­tles that fol­low of­fer a wealth of ex­cel­lent drink­ing for the sum­mer sea­son.

With bud­gets start­ing at $150 and stretch­ing up to $1000, these wine writ­ers and som­me­liers have each se­lected bril­liant op­tions across all price points. The bot­tles listed span a range of guar­an­teed crowd­pleasers, from $20 quaf­fers to $300 mag­nums.

Study the se­lec­tions, cherry-pick your stand­outs from all five lists, stock up ahead of time and drink well with fam­ily and friends.
