With the impending arrival of Harry and Meghan’s baby - Matt Day, sommelier for wine recommendation app Corkscrew reveals the best royal worthy and budget busting wines, liqueurs and sparklers to wet the baby’s head.
Matt Day has compiled a list of top tipples to cover all price points to celebrate the birth of the new royal.
It was reported that Harry once enjoyed Champagne drunk from a prosthetic limb during a trip to the South Pole! And his marriage toast was celebrated with Pol Roger Champagne. However now he is the Duke of Sussex an English sparkler may be more appropriate. Ridgeview Fitzrovia Rosé from Sussex, made by one of the UK’s best producers, could be a worthy (yet pricey) candidate. Or from just over the border in Kent, Balfour 1503 has pedigree at a more reasonable price (this is currently the UK’s lowest priced premium sparkler). On a tighter budget; grab this French bargain before Brexit doubles the price Aldi Cremant de Jura.
Meghan’s Top Picks
Let’s not forget about poor Meghan who must be gasping for a drink after 9 months dry. Her blog (now removed) used to be called The Tig after her favourite tipple Antinori Tignanello – an expensive ‘super-Tuscan’ from Italy that blends Italian and French grapes for smoothness and complexity. And similar blends go into Villa Antinori Rosso and Morrisons The Best Toscana.

In homage to our favourite ginger having a final huzzah, try a distinctive orange wine such as Tblvino Qvevris (M&S 10.00) which is fermented in amphorae in Georgia. Or how about a snifter of The King’s Ginger, a ginger liqueur formulated by Berry Bros. & Rudd and the King’s physician in 1903 to revive Edward VII after cold journeys in his open top car.
