Please note: Due to new changes in VAT rules affecting goods shipped from the UK to the EU, as of 1st July we have temporarily suspended shipping to the EU.

Apologies for any inconvenience. 

Issue 2 looks at artisanship and the shock of the new, from John Hegarty’s quest to get the land to reveal its true nature, to the ancient kvevri of Georgia. We cover the keen young winemakers of Burgundy working out of their garages, the comeback of vermouth and the winemakers of Cornas shaking things up in the Rhône Valley. But it’s not all new: Georgia’s winemaking tradition goes back many thousands of years, and we profile the head of one of the most ancient houses of Tuscany, Nicolò Incisa della Rocchetta, producer of famous racehorses as well as Sassicaia. We also have fine and rare Champagnes, the legendary Bordeaux 2009, modern art and music, and a look at the demon drink, la fée verte itself: Absinthe.
