This week, host David Kermode is joined by ‘wine rock star’ Peter Gago, the Chief Winemaker at Penfolds, custodian of The Grange. He joins the podcast all the way from Melbourne, to talk about his own winemaking philosophy, the story of how The Grange started its life in secret, and how Penfolds is slowly changing the world of wine.

Plus, find out about the painstaking, laborious process of how the fruit for his wine is selected – and his favourite ever back-vintage. As ever, you’ll also hear medal-winning recommendations from the IWSC.
