3 WINES TO ENJOY AROUND THE FIRE
SAUSAGE & BEAN CASSEROLE Just The Ticket Malbec Mendoza 2017, £10
Intense ripe blackberry notes with hints of milk chocolate. This is the ideal wine to enjoy with grilled meats, sausages and other rustic bonfire favourites.
HOT DOGS & COLESLAW Herdade de Coelheiros Branco Alentejo 2017, £16
This elegant Portuguese white is fresh and mineral, with a shot of citrus that will complement the corn salsa and apple coleslaw. And its herbaceous character will go brilliantly with the pesto.
PUMPKIN SCONES Quevedo Special Reserve Tawny Port, £18
Warm up by the bonfire with a little glass of this lovely port. Sweet, but not cloying, its marmalade-y character will bring out the citrus notes in the sticky orange glaze.
