Why Covid Didn’t Kill Wine Shops
Here’s a column I wrote for Decanter on how Covid has changed wine retail.
It was based partly on my experiences chairing the Decanter Retailer Awards.
Here’s an excerpt:
‘Far from blighting wine retail, the pandemic has created openings for a new breed of ambitious wine purveyor […] In my nine years chairing the Decanter Retailer Awards, I’ve never seen such a buoyant, dynamic, diverse set of entries.’
We also made a podcast on the back of this experience: How To Buy Wine.
I also get to recommend a cheeky Greek Assyrtiko.
