Bank Holiday BBQs


The Whitsun bank holiday at the end of May is almost here and the whole of Britain is hoping for good weather, but even if the recent spate of sunny days comes to an end, hundreds of men (and women!) up and down the country will be braving the elements and dusting off the barbecues in time for the long weekend. And as if more incentive was needed, this weekend marks the start of National Barbecue Week.

To celebrate, we have teamed up with luxury butcher Aubrey Allan to offer Berrys’ customers an exclusive discounted barbecue meat selection box, with plenty of grillable meats, as well as a free Mark Hix recipe book.

So, with such high quality ingredients and with so much effort and dedication on the part of the cooks, it’s only right that the accompanying wines enhance these lovingly-prepared dishes.  However, the reality is that selecting wines for a barbecue can be difficult, not least because of all the glazes, sauces and marinades involved.

For the dedicated cook we have created a BBQ wine matching section on our website to help guide you towards the perfect bottle for your menu, but  to make things even easier we have also selected a few of our favourite wines, all of which are guaranteed to be a perfect match to a whole host of barbecued food, from grilled chicken, vegetarian kebabs and juicy steak…and they might even make the proud chef’s ‘chargrilled’ sausages a hit.

There’s still time to order your BBQ wines for this weekend – every order over £100 placed before midday is elegible for free next day delivery to most parts of the UK.
