This week, host David Kermode talks to former-Fleet-Street-hack-turned-oenologist Chris Wilson about how his passion for wine led him to taking over a disused windmill in Cambridge to create an urban winery. The enthusiast is now poised to launch his inaugural cuvée with grapes from Essex’s answer to the Napa Valley.

The latest Desert Island Drink is the often misunderstood, but elegant, Riesling: we head to Germany to find out all about the grape.

Plus, can the humble potato create the best vodka? A potato farmer from Yorkshire thinks his King Edwards create the best tipple.
