101 Wines You’ve Never Tried

While you might have read Margaret Rand’s excellent 101 Wines To Try Before You Die (and, if you haven’t, you can do so here), this side-project of mine aims to introduce wine lovers to a world of indigenous grape varieties.

Ben discovering Madeleine Angevine in 2015

My specialism is in what I like to call “weird and wonderful” wines, so in this upcoming book I’ll be talking about everything from Keknyelu to Greco di Tufo and Plavac Mali to Okuzgozu.
