What’s been happening to wine during lockdown? It’s the BIG question on everyone’s lips – and the answer is not what you might expect. We dive right into the debate, throwing about facts, figures and opinions as we go. It does seem as if people revert to the familiar in times of crisis – and we’re not afraid to treat ourselves a bit either.
With this in mind, we launch a Twitter hullabaloo then taste test the biggest of all wine brands (car crash? Maybe…) After all that excitement, we go to the other end of the spectrum and get views from historic club The Wine Society and ‘counter-cultural’ wine bar and shop Diogenes the Dog. It’s another wine rollercoaster of an episode – hop on, and don’t look down.
