A selection of our new favourite things. Wine lovers, this is all the inspiration you need…

Drink: Balfour’s Pink Fizz

The team at Kent-based Hush Heath (the home of Balfour) are not the first to put English fizz into a can but head winemaker Fergus Elias informs us they wanted to make sure they got it just right. Anything that ticks the sustainability box gets the thumbs up from The Southern Quarter and if it tastes as good as this then we’re sold.

Product: Partner in Wine tumbler

With social walks and picnics with loved ones back on the cards this month, there’s no better time to enjoy English wine in one of these beauties. Surrey-based Lucy Hitchcock set up Partner in Wine after being fed up of having to drink warm rosé when meeting friends for socially distanced drinks in the park last summer. The insulated wine bottles (£35) and tumblers (£20), which come in pink, black, white and stainless steel, mean you can wave goodbye to warm wine in the summer and hello to toasty mulled wine in the winter.

Entertainment: Water & Wine puzzle

Over the last year, we’ve got a little bit addicted to puzzles and so we’re really rather excited by Water & Wine’s collection of educational wine puzzles, hand-drawn by Italian-based illustrator Nikita Kulikov.Founded by Yamit Viitaoja, a sommelier based in Stockholm, the collection currently comprises three Old World puzzles – France, Italy and Spain (€40) – with three from the New World launching later this year.
