Greek wines are a perfect accompaniment to Easter dinner! Though this year may not be the time for roasting that whole lamb on the spit, we can all still enjoy the flavours and the spirit of the season. We have selected two Greek wines that pair with Easter dinner, for just £17.49 each or 2 for £32. Available in store and online.

1. Ktima Gerovassiliou, Malagousia, £17.49 each
For those looking for white wines, the ancient variety Malagousia is delicate with subtle floral notes and hints of wild mint. This wine pairs perfectly with lamb, tomatoes, and even Aubergine, which probably appear on your traditional or even Greek Easter table in one form or another. Buy online.

2. Alpha Eastate, Xinomavro, £17.49 each
Being hailed as “The Barolo of Greece” because the wine can taste strikingly similar to Nebbiolo with dark cherry fruit, liquorice and allspice with high-tannin and medium-plus acidity. Xinomavro is a classic choice with lamb, as its acidity and fruit notes counterbalance the richness of the meat. Buy online.
