Ettore Germano: the inquiring mind

Serradenari: Barolo goes sexy

These might well the fruitiest Nebbiolos I’ve ever tasted.

István Jásdi or the power of self

István Jásdi, brilliant wines from the Balaton.

Time to go, Mr. Merlot

Day 1 of the Pannon Wine Challenge in Hungary. No winners yet but I already know the losers.

Hyped, expensive… and underwhelming.

Roxanich: incredible complexity

Roxanich: a very individual project and some incredibly good wines from Croatia’s Istria.

The annual Austrian wine tasting in Warsaw brings a major surprise: the zesty, vibrant, mineral red wines of Leithaberg. Totally obscure 10 years ago, now awarded with its own DAC classification, and the hottest address in vinous Austria.

Infinite riches

Tasting short of 1,000 burgundies in London.
