Champagne out of a paper cup; not just any champagne either but the delicately stunning Billecart-Salmon Rosé (Harrods £60). Not just a flowery paper cup either, but also a jam jar, a ‘proper’ glass champagne flute, an espresso cup and a Zara at home three quid white wine glass.

A ‘gathering’ at the ‘bandstand’ in the Embankment Gardens. Rain and gusty wind. Not ideal conditions but wine and friends – new and old – made up for it.

The other champagne, for we had two bottles, came from Aldi and their ‘punching way above its price’ Philizot & Fils Champagne Veuve Monsigny, which is great value at just £12.99.

Champagne Glass Line Up – an Oggl iphone-photo (hence the crappy quality when viewed at this size) is this weeks Sunday Wine Shot.
