I wrote a post all about why I’ve started The Wine List. If you’re a new subscriber to the newsletter, it’s well worth taking a look – and if you’re a regular, I’d love your feedback.
I was at a trade tasting on Monday focused on German wines. Riesling, Germany’s most well-known vinous export, is the favoured underdog of the English wine trade. And while the grape dominated yesterday, there were some incredible pinots: blancs, gris, and noirs. I’ll likely send out one or two of these in the future with TWL but have featured one below – inc. a lesson on demystifying the German label.
I don’t have any commercial data to back this up, but my gut feeling was that last Saturday was the day that most people gave up Dry January. All the Peckham pubs were heaving, while I saw the Drapers Arms’
they had their best trading yet of Jan. All over before I’ve found any alcohol free wines – are any of them any good yet?
