  4. Mother’s Day – Why You Shouldn’t Buy Her a Goat

    rosé Ahh… Mother’s Day.  It should be fairly easy to get right. If you remember the right Sunday of course! I have had mixed luck with my offerings of love to my Mother. Last year I thought I would be extra creative and adopt her a goat in Mongolia. She’s an animal lover and she [More]

  5. Dissecting Your Valentine’s Day Wine Dilemmas

    Valentine’s Day can very easily turn into a horribly commercial and stressful affair; rather than a day of showing adoration for your beloved.

This act has been met with a certain amount of criticism from those who view it [More]

  9. The Wine Show: episode eleven – wine fraud

    In episode eleven we explore the complex and fascinating area of wine fraud. Although there are many cases of fraud which happen at the lower end of the market; our production team were particularly drawn to a story which shook the fine wine world. The most recent high profile case of fraud involved Indonesian-born Rudy [More]

  10. The Wine Show: episode nine – port

    The Douro valley has to be one of the most underrated places in the world. Its dramatic mountainous landscape, rich history, fantastic table wine, wonderful food and even port itself does not receive the attention and appreciation it deserves. Hopefully after this episode, that will change. Picture yourself sitting in a trendy bar on a [More]
