Partners on this culinary journal around the world are DEFY, serving vegan, organic Italian wines that completely defy convention (I had to…). Have you ever found yourself overwhelmed by the choice of wines on a list, or struggled to pick a bottle off the shelf to have with your dinner? Well…
DEFY care about quality as much as they do about taste, focussing on taking the pretension out of wine; "no rocks, no gooseberry or spring days" as they say. At a push, they'll say their white wine is dry(ish) and tart, but that's about all you'll need, giving you time to focus on its incredibleness instead of complex details. It is organic, Soil Association certified and vegan, too!

What was on the Menu?
Yellow Daal + Celeriac Steak | DEFY White Wine
Enjoy a beautifully simple but sumptuous curry, naturally plant rich and packed with fibre! The yellow daal is mildly spicy and complemented perfectly with a DEFY single grape white wine, which can only be described as 'tart, dry(ish) and refreshing'... we'll take that! What more could you ask for?
This India inspired meal is under 450 calories and the perfect mid-weeker!
Thai Green Chicken Curry | DEFY Rosé Wine
Enjoy a beautifully vibrant and creamy plant-rich green curry with free-range chicken and sticky black rice. This high-protein and fragrant dish is perfectly matched with DEFY’s crisp and refreshing rosé wine.
This Thailand inspired dish brings Southeast Asia to your doorstep. Health and happiness on a plate!
Quinoa Con Carne | MOTH: Margarita
Protein-packed, tantalisingly hot, grass-fed beef chilli on a quinoa and kidney bean base, topped with organic cocoa nibs. This robust and beefy meal is high in protein, a source of iron and combines earthy flavours with a warm and gentle spice, effortlessly complemented by a fresh, sharp and confident MOTH: Margarita.
Central America has inspired this hearty meal that will leave your taste buds tingling.
No Pasta Vegan Lasagne | DEFY Red Wine
You won’t believe this isn’t meat! This rich plant based meal contains 3 of your 5 a day, flavoured with nuts, spices and topped with a crunchy dukkah crust.
The umami-rich creamy ragu is high in protein and effortlessly complemented by a DEFY red wine. “It’s from Italy, it’s organic and it's wet. Tastes like red wine. Really good red wine, but definitely just red wine, bold and very drinkable”.
This Italian classic has been reinvented just for you, savouriness at its absolute best!
