Seminal Wine Competition

Thrilled to see my oysters and piquepoul story published as a guest contributor in Jancis Robinson’s (UK) “Seminal Wine Competition”. Her Purple Pages website is the global Holy Grail of fine wine writing and wine knowledge authority, bar none.

Robinson says it is “a competition to find the best account of the seminal wine or wine experience that lit the wine flame for you”. My contribution was published on 7 September and you can read it at this link.
