Wihy is Wine Being Made Everywhere?
Wine is being made in unexpected places. Peter F May ponders why regions not traditionally associated with wine growing are now enthusiastically planting grape vines.

Alternative Woods to Oak Barrels
Oak is the standard wood used for wine barrels, but winemakers are experimenting with alternatives, says Peter F May. Two wineries have discovered that by using certain woods they can avoid having to add sulphites to their wine.

Chateaunef-du-Pape
Chateauneuf-du-Pape is on Rhone river in the south of France, near the historic town of Avignon. Peter F May visited and was charmed by winemakers' shops in the old city. Luckily he had his credit card to hand.

In the Pink with Rose Wines
Summer is when thoughts turn to wines neither red nor white but in-between. From the palest ethereal pink through deeper hues to almost red, or orange these wines look beautiful in the glass. They’re served chilled, like a white wine but have a bit more body to them.

Can Wine Taste of Minerals?
Ever been at a tasting when someone recognises a flavour of the limestone or slate the grapes are planted on? Science says that's impossible, but Peter F May has an explanation.

Blending Wine Varieties Makes Sense
There are several advantages to making wines from a blend of varieties, says Peter F May

Marvellous Montepulciano
Montepulciano is a red grape grown in the Abruzzo region of Italy. Pt's Peter May's 'go to' wine for past and pizaa.

The Grape Detective - Tracing Danugue
When Jerry Rodrigues created a completely new grape variety named Cabernet Labrusco he took the pollen from an old vine planted in 1960. But discovering what variety it was turned out to be complicated so Jerry turned detective.

Cabernet labrusco - Making a New Grape Variety
After twenty years Jerry Rodrigues drank the fruits of his long project. In his glass was the worlds first vintage of a brand new grape variety he named Cabernet Labrusco. He talked about his work to to Peter F May.

Syrah, Shiraz, Gruner Veltliner and family
Austria's white Grüner Veltliner is becoming increaingly popular and Syrah-Shiraz has many fans. Peter F May was surprised to find they are related, learns about their parents, and tastes the very first varietal Dureza at a Masterclass presentd by the authors of Wine Grapes
