Wine ideas for Mother’s Day

By Halliday Wine Companion

Whether you’re searching for something to go with a meal, to share with her on the day or to gift, we have some cracking options here.


While you probably don’t want to reach for a big red first thing in the morning, you do have more options than sparkling wine and juice. Look for lower alcohol styles, don’t be afraid of a little sweetness, and given the range of flavours that can appear on the breakfast table, choose bottles that will be versatile with food.


There’s not much that beats the pop of a Champagne cork to signify a special occasion. Whether a fun prosecco or a high-quality sparkling wine, a bottle of bubbly has the power to please most people. Sharing some late-afternoon fizz with the family will be an easy and enjoyable option for Mother’s Day, and you can find a bottle to suit any budget below.


Gifting a nice bottle of wine never disappoints. When choosing what to buy, look for recognisable names with a history of excellence. You might also want to think about bottles that can cellar in case the recipient wants to set aside the wine for some time. And, of course, always consider the tastes of who you’re buying for – if she loves sauvignon blanc, then seek out some top examples.
