The ONLINE WINE RETAILER Serenata Wines sees that its UK
clients are sticking to established choices this Christmas. The company
does not glimpse any effects from the financial difficulties that may
still have its influence on the economy in the UK.
Serenata sees that Burgundy, a classical Christmas wine, is picking up gracefully in
orders this time.
The London-based online wine specialist also revealed that additional established
favorites, Port and Champagne, are proving admired.
Peter Ahl, Managing Director of Serenata Wines, said: "We routinely become aware of
variations in wine popularity throughout different time of the year and have also
noticed a number of influences from current economical downturns, but this Christmas
we see a solid growth and people buy the long-established wines.
"In Britain wine drinking is increasing steady. Every wine-growing state sends its
stuff here which creates an embarrassment of choices. Buying wine online has too
given people much extra choices and choice to acquire the most excellent. The
selection of wines for Christmas is
considered by many fairly confusing.
"Generally, Burgundy is considered the Christmas wine traditional. Many people who
drink plenty of additional wines with a bit more 'grip' during the rest of the
year do love their traditional Burgundy for their Xmas feast.
"Sparkling wine has its natural place in many social gatherings throughout
Christmas time and the equally could be said for a glass of Port . Port which has a
tendency to be replaced by other drinks still holds its position during Christmas."
But Serenata's out of the ordinary proposal for the ideal Christmas wine is a red
wine that is not quite as conventional. Montepuliciano d'Abruzzo from Valle Reale
was the champion of Three Glasses in the 2009 Gambero Rosso Awards.
Peter added: "This is a lovely wine with a explicit balsamic and mild clove, and
cinnamon notes shining through the mild impressive and damson fruit. Put plainly, it
is the perfect glass of red for this occasion of year. It shares the elegance and
hospitality of Italy. There is a complexity to the new 2006 that belies its age:
amazing stuff and a total steal."
For revelers in the feel for fizz but who don't like paying out for Champagne,
Serenata has suggested the "startlingly good" Prosecco from their man Giovanni
Giovanni is a small producer in Valdobbiadene and is widely regarded by connoisseurs
in the Veneto county as an outstanding virtuoso in the skill of Prosecco winemaking.
