Where is the season taking you?

As we enter the summer months, we have assembled a definitive list of wines and spirits for the coming season, and an accompanying competition to boot.

Summer shouldn’t be a solitary affair: it is the season for effervescent garden parties, open-air dining and extended aperitifs. The easing of corks from bottle-necks should be accompanied by laughter and camaraderie; the appreciation of weather and wine, communal.

Whether indulgent afternoons or labour-intensive mornings, a simple supper or the most decadent of outdoor feasts, a swift apéritif or total immersion in the cocktail hour; send us your photos of the summer season and be in with a chance of winning our Essential Summer Collection.

How it works

  1. Capture the essence of your summer in a photo.
  2. Post your picture on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook, using the hashtag #bbrsummer by midnight on Friday 19th June.
  3. We will draw the winner at random, and notify them via email.
