When it comes to ‘Making Your Mind Up’ for the weekend wine list and choosing some reds, whites, rosés and fizz to go with your Eurovision party food, our experts are here to help. These unsung bottles from around Europe are well worth a look - and ideal for enjoying with friends.

This is Morrisons calling, and we have the results from our top pick of Euro wines to sample during the song contest on Saturday night. All you need to do is choose your party food (or bring out the barbecue if the weather is kind) and settle into the songs with a glass of something Italian, Romanian or even Greek for the big night.

‘Douze points’ may be too much to ask for, but here are twelve Eurovision party drinks to help you celebrate the contest in style:
