Rose wine from Dan Murphy's

Here’s the best alcohol to keep you going this Christmas

We drink a lot at Christmas. Fact.

In fact, since 1788 when the first vine cuttings were brought to Australia on the First Fleet, Australians have worked themselves up to drinking over 530 million litres of wine annually, not to mention all the spirits in the cocktails we down, too.

So in light of that, here are some top types to add to your ‘must drink’ list this year.
