Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver has teamed up online with UK wine retailer Naked Wines to feature a dedicated wine section on his website.
"It's a brilliant bit of news JamieOliver.com is teaming up with a fantastic company called Naked Wines," said Oliver.
"The great thing is, they have the same passion for food and wine as we do, and we're working with really small, unsung wine producers from around the world, giving the smaller vineyards the chance to share their beautiful wines with the rest of us."
Oliver's official website now has a dedicated wine section which matches recipes to wines, offers general wine tips and promotes seasonal cases selected by the chef.
Rown Gormley founder of Naked Wines said: "Jamie's approach to food inspired us to launch Naked Wines, and he was the chef we wanted to work with above all others.
"The wine industry is often shrouded in emperor's clothes, but Jamie's shown that you can be casual and professional at the same time."
