Sweden is definitely a cool climate wine country. We have a few brave wine producers, most of them very small and most of them in the southernmost part of Sweden.

Female journalists’ favourites in Languedoc (wines, of course…)

Agricultural cooperatives in France are numerous and influential. Not least in the wine business.

EasyJet and British Airways serve the best wines

A good idea not to focus on the business class wines in this recently held competition but instead on the wines served in Economy. How many of us fly these days in business…? The competition included 12 reds and 12 whites and the winners were perhaps not quite as expected: Winners for white wines: EasyJet […]

The world’s best syrah wines

It is, of course, not necessarily the world’s best syrah wines.
