Wines of Great Britain (GB Wine) Episode 179

In this video, we learn all about English and Welsh wines from two experts; –
Julia Trustram Eve, Marketing Director of Wine GB (The British Wine Producers Trade Association)
and
Martin Fowkes, winemaking Director of Three Choirs Vinyard talk about how English and Welsh Wine is a fast developing industry with the help of passionate growers and some warmer weather.
Also, the change in the consumer’s tastes is also helping with the great British public now preferring lighter wines with slightly more fruit-driven styles.
We discuss the fantastic high-quality sparkling wines now being produced in England and how sparkling is now being produced all over the county.
We discuss the millions of vines being planted in Britain each year with no sign of abatement.

Quinta da Casaboa Winery – Portugal (Episode 174)

Another episode from our visit to the 2019 London Wine Fair where we have the great pleasure to talk to Joana Paes the General Manager at Quinta da Casaboa Winery about her family’s wine produced just a way outside of Portugal’s capital Lisbon.

Joana is the General manager of her Family’s winery, having grown up in the winery is part of life. The vineyard is 50km outside of Lisbon and very near the sea which has a fantastic effect on the taste of the grapes.

Joana goes on to explain the grapes they grow in their vineyard and the types of wine that they produce.

To find out more about the wine please take a look at Joana’s company’s web site: –

Greek Wines (Episode 172)

In this video, we talk to Grigoris Michailos about Greek Wine at the 2019 London Wine Fair.
Grigoris discusses the hundreds of years of wine history there is in Greece.
Surprisingly two-thirds of the wine produced in Greece is white wine because 79% of the Greek landmass is mountainous.

Take a look at the website Wines of Greece (https://winesofgreece.org) for more information on the wonderful world of Greek Wines.
