Old vines: what’s the big deal? They often make better wines, but their history runs a lot deeper than that. Host David Kermode finds out why with guest Sarah Abbott MW, who is on a mission to protect the world’s endangered old vines.

Plus, Kermode wades into the great whisky debate. Some adore a single malt; others swear by a blend. Joel Harrison has the lowdown on single malt versus blended whisky.

Plus, as always, you’ll also hear the pick of the IWSC medal winners that you should consider adding to your collection.
