Excerpt from The Sunday Times -  8th June 2014, Bob Tyrer. Part of me has been feeling glum because I feared that my little plot of vines was suffering from leaf roll virus, a scourge of modern viticulture. It makes the leaves go a lovely red but blocks photosynthesis, so they can’t do their job of converting sunlight into Château Bob. There is no cure. I was thinking of pulling them up, yet they are so young. Enter one of New Zealand’s greatest winemakers, Larry McKenna of Escarpment Vineyard in Martinborough, who was here for the London Wine Fair. Invited to lunch...

Coriole is situated in the undulating hills of the densely planted McLaren Vale region just within sight of the sea and less than an hour from Adelaide. The original farmhouses were built in 1860 and are now the epicentre of the garden and cellar door at the winery. The original vineyards were planted immediately after the first world war. Shiraz is the great tradition of McLaren Vale going back over 150 years, and is the major variety planted on the estate. The first...

The Glenelly Estate is in the Idas Valley, located in Stellenbosch, on the southern slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain. Its origins date back to the seventeenth century. Simon van der Stel, Governor of the Cape, gave the land to the Huguenot François Villion. In 1812, the estate passed to Johan Peter de Villiers, and finally in 1865 it became the property of a British family, the Garlicks. They owned it for 138 years until its purchase in 2003 by May-Eliane de Lencquesaing, who for over 30...

Catherine, one of the original South African garagistes has evolved to become a premium artisanal producer of fine wines. Her range includes Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, a Rhone styled red blend and a fortified dessert wine. Catherine’s winemaking philosophy is to create wines from vineyards that produce fruit of purity, and which expresses the geographical nuances and character of each site. She then applies minimal and thoughtful intervention in the cellar, so that each wine reflects the very essence of its origins.

In 1953, Anthony and his brothers purchased a small Brooklyn wine company, and we do mean small-their new distributorship consisted of one salesman who only spoke Italian! Ten years later, Anthony purchased a California winery and moved west, turning the Brooklyn business over to his brothers. He endured the inevitable boom and bust cycles that challenge vintners worldwide, but continued the family tradition of passing his winemaking skills to his children while instilling the importance of selling good wines at reasonable prices for daily enjoyment. Today we are proud to have a California winery bearing the family name,...

"An outstanding New Zealand summer provided near perfect conditions for growing grapes across the country" said Philip Gregan, chief executive officer of New Zealand Winegrowers. "The result is that we expect the 2013 wines to be vibrant, fruit driven and complex expressions of our diverse grape growing regions. 2013 looks set to be a vintage to remember."

"The small 2012 grape crop left the industry unable to meet continuing strong consumer...
