On 5th June, Queen Elizabeth will celebrate her diamond jubilee and many patriotic Brits around the country will be gathering around the sofas to enjoy the celebrations with their nearest and dearest. When it comes to celebrating, there are not many that do it better than us Brits and as you bring your family and friends together, make sure that you have all the ingredients you need to enjoy the celebrations.
When you are planning any get together, you need to think about who you are inviting as in order to make sure the atmosphere is as friendly as possible, you need to have the right mix of people. Whether this means you invite only friends or only family, it doesn't matter; just make sure you have the right people there.
When celebrating it is always nice to have some bubbly to hand as that is one of the best ways to celebrate. However, not everyone is a sparkling wine fan and you may want to opt for a full bodied red, a crisp white or maybe a refreshing rose. Whatever you choose, make sure you find the right wine for you and your guests. It is a good idea to serve some nibbles with the wine so make sure that the two match, maybe some nice Spanish chorizo with a tasty glass of South African red wine or maybe a selection of cheese with a refreshing glass of New Zealand white wine.
The diamond jubilee is a once in a lifetime thing for everyone and it may be something you can look back on in years to come and say that you were a part of it all. This is all the more reason to celebrate in style and you can do this by visiting the various wine stores in the UK. The great thing for customers is that there is a wide range of options as many predict that 2012 will be the year that UK wine producers make a name for themselves with a number of different products about to hit the market.
Whatever the occasion, you need to make sure that you have plenty of refreshments available for your guests. If you are planning a get together at your home and you are cooking then make sure that you have the right wine depending on the meal you are making, just make sure that everyone has a good view of the festivities on the television!
