You don’t always have to splash out on high-end bottles when winemakers are producing such great-value ‘ready-to-wear’ wines under their second labels.

IN FASHION CIRCLES THEY’RE called

‘diffusion labels’, in wine they’re known as ‘second labels’, the range somewhere-close-but-not-quite-at-the-top-of-the-line, offering wines of a great pedigree but not always for the same high price.
