Red, white or bubbly, why choose? Whether it’s a picnic or a simple salad, CSL has a bottle for you.
FOR A PICNIC
Outdoor picnics are the epitome of feel-good summer activities, and these days, one of the few activities we can all still pursue. They can be as casual or upscale as you want – a real fresh air restaurant meets Dutch party. Celebrate the simple pleasures with abbreviated bottles of bubbles, that are as easy to carry as they are to sip.

FOR FRESH SALADS AND AL FRESCO DINING
Lighter fare doesn’t have to mean formulaic wine pairings. Case in point, a beautifully bright, colourful beet salad that requires a glass of wine that is not too acidic or that would compete with both the dressing and sweetness of the beets themselves. We’ve chosen a red and white that will spice up tastebuds.
