Host David Kermode meets Jancis Robinson OBE MW, widely regarded as the world’s most prominent wine critic. She’s been writing about drinks since 1975 and became the first person ever non-industry expert to become a master of wine.

Plus, the Desert Island Drink this week is the fiendishly difficult Nebbiolo – find out why it’s David Gleave MW’s castaway tipple, despite it rarely popping up outside of Piedmont.

As always, you’ll also find recommendations and pairing notes from our experts, from the pioneering Ridgeview English wine to the outstanding Stranger and Sons Indian Spirited gin.
