Some of my wine writing…

My wine column for the Virginia Water Magazine, 2020-22

In 2020 I was asked to write a series of monthly wine columns for The Virginia Water Magazine, and am making these available here for those who would like to read them (.png or .jpg images as well as larger sized .pdf versions – just click on the titles or images). The choice of wine recommendations is largely explained by a wish primarily to find wines that are available locally to exemplify the month’s theme, and that also reflect a variety of different price points.








December 2021-January 2022: Rediscovering Sherry at Christmas


November 2021: Why taste?




July-August 2021: Merchants of Wine



May 2021: Wines for Spring

*apologies for typo: the first Beerenauslese should of course read Auslese


April 2021: Exploring lesser known grape varieties (Touriga Nacional, Petite Arvine, and Sagrantino)




December 2020: A fortified Christmas
