I have just returned from a week in Bordeaux, France. This region makes some of the worlds most expensive and prized wines, but also many every day wines.
In the first of a new series I introduce Bordeaux,
then I look at the 1855 Classification
I a few weeks I travel to Canada's British Columbia and the Okanagen Valley wine region so if you want me to look at anything there please contact me by email or ask on the forum.
I have just finished a series of articles on Biodynamics.
What makes a wine 'biodynamic'? Peter F May looks at a semi-mystical farming practise being adopted by wine growers.
Benziger Family Winery was one of the first in the USA to get Biodynamic Certification. The Boulard family has been growing grapes for more than 200 years and now Francis Boulard has converted to Biodynamic farming. Peter F May travels to California and Champagne to visit their vineyards
When Johan Reyneke took over responsibility for his family's vineyards he did something no-one in the country had ever done. Peter F May meets the first biodynamic farmer in South Africa.
