Refreshing wines to enjoy by the pool or with summery salads

Wines for the Weekend: Both wines are available at a discounted price this weekend

This week two great refreshing wines, perfect for the summer ahead. Both are from Dunnes Stores and will be discounted by 20 per cent from Saturday, May 27th.

Ribeiro is in Galicia, not far from Rías Baixas, home of the Albariño grape, and one of our favourite white wines. This wine is made from Godello, another great local variety that is growing in popularity. The best examples have a lovely succulent richness of fruit.

The rosé is made by Marcus Huber, one of the stars of Austrian winemaking. From the less well-known region of Traisental, his wines offer great value for money. Dunnes also sell his excellent grüner veltliner and pinot noir, featured here before.

Paloma de Plata Godello 2022, Ribeiro

Abv 12.5%, €14 (€11.20 from the 27th of May)

Mouth-watering fresh, ripe peaches cut through by a refreshing streak of grapefruit. Perfect on its own, but better with prawns or scallops.


Moments Rosé 2022, Huber, Austria (Organic)

Abv 12%, €15 (€12.40 from tomorrow)

Essence of summer; delicate fresh textured strawberry fruits with crisp acidity. Enjoy poolside, in the garden solo or with summery salads.
