Red wine

Best place to try it: Bordeaux, France
Best time of year to drink it: May

If you and your new spouse love a drop of wine, head for Médoc in south-west France to sample the snifters on offer at the stunning Château Mouton Rothschild wine estate.

You’ll have to book well in advance to get a place on one of the cellar tours at this highly-prized Bordeaux wine-maker, but once you’re out in the pine-fresh air sipping that first Cabernet Sauvignon, it’ll be well worth it. If you have time, check out the Rothschild’s art collection in the adjoining museum.

Where else to go: La Rioja, Spain
