At an exclusive online Times+ event which took place on Thursday, August 20, Will Lyons, The Sunday Times Wine expert, took Helen Hawkins, The Sunday Times Culture magazine editor, on a virtual wine tour to taste a delicious selection of his summer favourites. 

During the event, subscribers were taken on a vinous journey across the wine route to explore the perfect wines to match those summer occasions, whether dining alfresco, firing up the barbecue or picnicking under the stars. Will shared his reflections of each of the wines and Helen shared tales of having a glass or two with some of the most interesting names in the arts world.
