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. I 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 kargely 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
