A BBQ’s idea of a BBQ and wines to match!


When we received our invitation to Neil and Carol’s BBQ, to celebrate the former’s birthday, it wasn’t entirely true that all the wines we would be tasting were largely down to my having introduced them to Neil, as he actually said.
I can’t claim credit for the super Luis Roederer Brut Premier Champagne, served as a welcome drink. Also, the delightful M de Alejandria dessert wine, was a new Moscatel to me, but one to which I’m sure I’ll return.
However, I might perhaps have played a part in Neil’s choice of white wine, paired with the delicious barbecued fresh prawns; as well as the simply wonderful, exemplary DO Yecla red wine, Casa Cisca from Bodegas Castaño. After all, I did take Neil and Carol to visit the bodega a couple of years ago.
