Oz Clarke, Britain’s most popular wine writer, is absolutely in tune with what wine drinkers want today – flavour, individuality, excellent value for money and wines that are readily available. Oz has tasted thousands of wines over the past year and here are his tips for good value whites and rosés for the coming spring and summer. Oz has chosen over 100 real wines, not faceless brands, wines with individuality and a sense of their origins. There’s no need for such wines to cost the earth – it’s just a matter of knowing where to look and in this book Oz has done the hard work for you. 

All the still white and rosé wines in the book cost less than a tenner, with most of the wines nearer the £5 mark so there are plenty of memorable flavours out there for you to try without breaking the bank. We love fizz in this country and the longer the sun stays out, the more we drink of it. Oz has selected his favourite Champagnes that deliver top flavours at decent prices, as well as good-value sparklers, both white and rosé, at less than £15 a bottle, and there are even two black sparkling Shirazes as a final treat.


Oz is one of the world’s leading wine experts, known for his phenomenal palate, irreverent style, accurate predictions, and enthusiasm for life in general and wine in particular. He is the author of many award-winning books on wine. Before wine took over his life in 1984, Oz was a full-time actor and singer, appearing in West End hit shows and touring with the Royal Shakespeare Company. Alongside his entertaining television and radio broadcasts, including ‘Food and Drink’, ‘Oz and James’ with James May and James Martin’s Saturday Morning, he presents a series of concerts, Drink to Music! with the acclaimed Armonico Consort. Oz is also sports mad. He was awarded an OBE in 2020.
